323 GTX b6t using the S4 manifold?
I know its an odd question, but Bell Engineering looks to like fun problems
I have a 323 GTX
that is getting the stocker IHI RHB5-VJ14 tossed, and I'm looking for a manifold that uses the Garrett t2x flange. I saw the BEGI S4 manifold is a bottom-mount design that I would require, so it might fit my extremely
tight space between the head and the radiator. I wanted to know any dimensions that I could use to see if it would fit. I'd be mounting the turbocharger facing the other direction
(aka in a Miata the intake would face the firewall), so I'd have to find either a right-hand spinning t25 (I think some Saab t25s point that way as the curvature of the turbo would have to face inwards toward the block. I can get some measurements of the maximum clearances from head exhaust outlets to where the radiator site. Anyway, thanks!
An engineering sample would be great, I wouldn't mind a deposit to test-fit a manifold.

More or less stock room, I think its about 8 to 11.5 inches from flange to the radiator itself.
