Default Smokin 1.8 T3 manifiold deal, FM DOTD

Already have the overstock BEGI T3 manifold. Picked this one up 'cause the price was right.

Now all I need is the car. Two manifolds, no car.

Yeah, that's an awesome deal. I was "this" close to calling for one, but ... ahhh ... restraint won out today.

I still figure I can make a mild steel log for less than that, but dayum, it'd be nice to have an engineered cast piece. Oh well.

Hey, maybe you'll be selling one when I'm ready to buy!

I thought picking up the BEGI overstock old style for $300 was still a good deal.

I've dealt with my fair share of welded manifolds on my other turbo cars. Nice to know either one of these won't be a point of failure.

Lemme get the FM one in hand and I'll probably sell whichever one I don't want. I don't think the design of either is superior. The Bell one was before Markp magic directed pulse modifications.

Hey, all I did was make the suggestion, but I bet it flows better!

At $120 it was a smoking deal.

I'm just ribbing you dude. I happen to have a T360 waiting to go on too. I'm a good listener.

It's a good turbo, and for the street probably better than the turbo that I have. While my car should be making in excess of 325 RWHP (which the T3S60 can't really do) I think I prefer the early spool of the T3S60. Don't get me wrong, I am not disappointed in the slightest with the performance of my car, just cognizant of the trade offs.
