    Mike, I'll ask Thomas how much he will be retailing them for.

    Adam buy my old manifold and turbo and make it work :)

    Mike depending on whether its twin scroll or single scroll and turbo choice it'll fluctuate but you're looking at around £1k

    That Gunni manifold is an abortion. Fair play for staying so calm about the whole thing.
    New one looks really good :)

    Kam i dont get angry i get even :) I've posted it on every BMW Forum, including ones that he trades on so that people can judge for themselves. All it would have taken was a simple apology and a refund and i would have gone about my merry way.

    As for the new one Thomas Zurawski and Martin Richards have been amazing. So glad they took it over from Matt who was just a bumbling clueless idiot. Bolt ons should start going on from Monday as there has been a delay with flanges. Will update it as and when i get pics.

    Nice guy, good work :)

    Looking forward to the updates.

    the manifold should be already mounted and at this time i should have finished the whole exhaust system, but there was this stupid delay with the flange, now we found someone that looks professional in a laser cut shop and it should be already posted. soon I have it I will crack on your car till is done and spliting fire :)

    With the SLR Angle kit a bit of work was needed to figure out the intercooler/exhaust piping. 76 degrees of lock :)

    I take my hat off to you sir :worthy:, i realy do. Ive read this thread from start to present, and ive got to announce you "the world's most patient man" ever :thumbs:

    The amount of trouble you seem to have had with that manifold is unreal, i would of lost the will ages ago fair play to you chap. ive got a 4-door 328 which i was gunna boost on a budget, but after the trouble you have had, iam not guna bother till i have big funds for the right equipment.

    Stav its a GT3076 came of Thomas's old SR20.

    Yes i have been patient, i've had to having to deal with fuckwits. Thankfully its in good hands now. If i hadnt had my GT86 the last few months to keep me sane i would have called it a day.

    is a real pleasure to working on this car, I don`t understand how "someone" could fuck this up so much.
