Re: Ebay

It would definitely work....how succesfully I'm not sure - It would have to be very solid to hold the weight of the turbo and you might need another bracket to support the manifold. Also check for pictures of an in car set up if possible as to where the turbo would sit and where piping would have to travel etc

Re: Ebay

I can only imagine what it looks like....I dont know what a standard exhaust manifold looks like as I bought my car with extractors.
Also, (and don't quote me on this so anyone reading this that knows better, feel free to intervene), you may experience a bit more lag cus of the extra distance the air has to travel from the motor to the turbine, where it would probably also have (slightly) less velocity to spin the turbine, causing even more lag. (Mind you, this lag would be very little, but you would prolly notice it)

Re: Ebay

This type of manifold has been used a fair bit from what I have seen, and does quite a good job. Obviously it won't flow as well as a tuned length professional design but you don't in most cases you don't need it because the majority of turbo I6's run fairly low boost 6-10psi which will give tons of power anyway. If you were trying to extract every last kw out of the engine then yeah the manifold would be a good place to start but for a cheap and easy setup that manifold would be fine.
