I've been following a few of the build threads. With an array of financial situations and problems. I do have time on my side for sure. I have an alert set up on local and nearby craigslist stuff and today a T3 Godspeed popped up and 515 injectors for $100 , has a homemade manifold for a 1.8 but if the turbo spins free $100 cant be a bad price

*edit* and then this showed up... Turbo/Manifold

It depends on the specs of the T3. I know the guy selling the stuff in Savannah. He just bought a motor from me. You do realize though that both those CL adds you are looking at are for 1.8's and the manifolds won't work on your car.

Yes, I noticed that they were both 1.8's and I do know that the manifolds don't swap. .

I haven't gotten the name of the guy on CL yet , but there is a guy Josh locally that's been running through turbo stuff lately as well. Same guy? If it is , I usually see his stuff on FB before CL. Met him through the guys at Short Stop Garage, do you know those guys too?

I got a chance to talk with a local who does a lot of turbo work. I have a clearer plan. Again , thanks for all your input and your build threads as well, very informative.
