No, the ebay manifold is worse.williamb82 said:wow, funny everyone was bashing the ebay manifolds saying how superior in fitment the greddy manifold is yet it has the same issue with large turbo fitment.
wasnt meant as an insult to you, just a general comment. and yes, thats a bigass turbo, but still requires mods to fit. all i was getting at.blkt72 said:My turbo DOES have an on center housing which isn't ideal. I think I'll try the tangential housing suggestion first and see how that works. Remember, the turbo frames change to a big frame around T70 IIRC. This is a pretty damned big turbo, I sort of half expected this.
You are almost certainly right. If that [email protected] flange had a little twist toward the motor it'd be even closer. I had to take the compreesor housing off just to get to where I'm at. I'll do a spacer if I need to, prefer not to.jt2ma71 said:I've seen a few variations of the greddy manifold. They were sold mostly as part of a kit which came with the turbo. This one is probably for a smaller turbo because the flange is parallel to the engine. The ones for bigger turbos have an angled flange. It looks like a tangential housing will put your turbo closer to the runners, but I could be wrong. A spacer ~1-1.5 inch thick will raise the turbo but will most likely solve your problem. Good Luck!!
NP. I know somebody who had the same issues and is using a spacer, it's really not that bad as far as performance goes. Still manages to make close to 700 hp at the wheels. Just make sure you make it divided too if you decide to go that route. Good Luck!blkt72 said:
