    Stock manifold is good for best part of 400bhp IIRC, and won't crack.

    Most of all, and I've been saying it for years but it's like bashing your head against a brick wall as no cunt listens, no manifold will survive without luck unless you run a turbo hanger, like all fucking race cars ever made run.

    FFS, GrpA R32 GT-Rs ran them with standard cast manifolds and standard size turbos!

    And I mean proper hangers, not those pathetic pieces of metal to brace a manifold.

    I've seen a couple of nice turbo installs, but have you got any good pics stav? When I do my new setup I want to make it the best I can.

    something along the lines of these?

    all my pipe comes from rally design, their based in whitstable kent which is just up the road from me, They do pretty much every shape size colour u could want, just about everything i buy comes from there. Tell u want they dont do though mini light wheels for a 4x114.3 stud pattern:cry:

    Id love to get a set of cams for mine but atm im just wanting to open it up get all the breathers cleaned, a proper breather set up as this seems to be crucial in these engines lasting and use it!

    Totally argee, just in the process of fitting a t35 onto my CA (top mount) and i can't see it not snapping off as it isn't exactly lightweight! I need to get something made up quicktime.

    Lol ill get pics at the weekend, i've just taken off the chinese Gt2871 turbo which i was running @ 1.4bar since july and it was a beast. Only thing i'm worried about is the turbo/manifold hitting the ABS unit, going to be a tight fit. I won't be running over 1.4bar on the standard engine tho.

    There's also the bit where no one fills it with the right amount of oil due to the dipstick design..

    Rads- Yeah, something like that. That one is quite subtle compared to a lot of race ones.

    GrpA R32 ones on stock cast manifolds and little turbos.

    Throw the abs in the bin its useless and ur problems solved. I can left foot or heel n toe brake mine with no abs with out locking up. Unless u treat ur brak3 pedal like ur clutch pedal u wont have a problem. I hate abs its intrusive.



    Edit.... That makes me sound like Im biggin myself up just to clear up i dont think Im the best driver just saying remove it Ull be fine

    Here are some better pics of the engine:-

    Its running a t28 turbo, ported head, flow matched manifolds (inlet and exhaust), CA16 cam and some 1250cc ASNU injectors (along with a few other bits and bobs). We had issues with the ethanol so it has now also got a microtec ign amplifyer and some posh AEM coils in there with MSD ign leads. Going to push for 380bhp and 380 ft/lbs once its up and running properly :p

    Its probs best to look at my project thread for more info though because I'm really starting to whore now lol.
