Default t3/t4 flange

Hey guys....

I was surfing through ebay and came across this turbo manifold:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWAX%3AIT

product details states 'Best Fitment with T3/T4 Turbochargers and Internal Wastegates'

Will this flange work with a stock TD04 taken off a WRX.
anyone else have any other links to where I can buy something similar to ship to Singapore?

Many thanks.

I'm being nice here and holding back. I'm bored and this thread is a perfect opportunity for me to get creative on a ************.

And you're welcome.

there are tons of different td04's with different footprints. the one for a WRX has a weird 3 bolt flange.

if he says its rectangular either
1) its not off a wrx
2) he is a retard and fire him

rectangle triangle all the same stuff

You will probably have to get a WRX flange and have it welded to whatever manifold you get...I dont know of one being produced.
Check with some of the fab guys from here, see if anyone wants to make you a custom manifold.

the volvo xc90 actually used a td04 with a t3 flange. The only reason I know that is we just did a turbo in an 06 xc90 2 weeks ago. FYI the oe td04 was leaking oil after only 41k.

Cars that run t3/t4 turbos from the factory?

Edit: there is no t3/t4 flange, the hot side that needs the flanges for exhaust parts (manifold and downpipe) is a t3, with a t4 compressor connected to it.

yea...i've figured that out....the only problem is that it seems that the kind folks who are selling the manfolds all use the same description....which is t3/t4 flange.

If you're dead set on using a turbo with a 3bolt flange like the wrx one, a custom mani may be your best route..

Or getting a turbine housing with the more traditional style flange

im already using a custom manifold. But i figured i might wanna go for a cast manifold instead, which isnt going to warp so easily.
