The flanges are different. I am getting some made because I could only find them for sale from Full-race and I'm cheap.

The units off of racecars didn't have integrated BOV's. However if you order one with a V-band housing it comes as super core, which is the standard compressor housing with integrated BOV.

I am very interested in seeing the results of that comparison... Will you be trying out both the .64 and the .85 housings on the borg? or did you only get the .64 from Micah?

Why will the EFR not fit your current manifold?
Only trying the .64 housing on the borg. I only have so much money I can spend on these things, and we know I can blow trannies every day with the .64 so I have no need to see what ALLOFIT is on a .85

The stock EFR flanges that use studs have the built in wastegate, the v-band inlet EFR's do not have the internal wastegate. The 3" outlet flange from both the Tial and EFR appear to be the same so I could hook up my down pipe to the EFR. The v-band inlet flange on the EFR is different then the Tial inlet v-band so I need a different flange at the manifold. I was really hoping they would have been the same as that would make swapping turbos painless and easy. The plan is sometime in 2015 to build a copy of my absurdflow manifold and just put the EFR flange on it. Then reuse the same tial wategate, and hopefully downpipe between the two. When I do back to back dynos I want the setups to be as close to each other as possible
