flanges are not going to fit anything commonly available.

get a gt2554 or sr t25 if you want easy compatibility and fast spool

or a small t3 footprint since you have a 1.6 and can use the taco log

Thanks for the advice but im going to custom machine a steel adapter plate. im going to use a t3 flanged cast log manifold and the 4 bolt td03 flange the fit is super close i was more asking about the performance you can get out the TD03?

Options exist you just have to pay for them if you want something other then t2 or t3 flange.

Completely agree, I trying to contact John @ JSPFAB to get my fabrication done when I'm ready. I'm new to the site and I think this is the only forum I'll be visiting. Didn't mean to offed anybody.
