What in the world is a t3 16g??? If you mean a 16g, then yes. I have a stainless 16g downpipe for the 1.6 for sale.

Shoot me PM if you're interested.

Ebay/chinese turbo != junk. I ran one, lots of other people run them on this forum, and will run another on my BMW. For the most part, they seem to be quality.

With that said:

WHAT ******* MANIFOLD DO YOU HAVE AND WHAT YEAR IS YOUR CAR?

Do you realize how absolutely un-answerable your question is without providing some basic information like that?

Ok then. I'm assuming you mean the tacotaco manifold (they DO sell others btw, only one cast version though).

So lets see if I have this right:


+



And you want to know if there is an off the shelf downpipe that will fit?

The answer, quite simply, is: ****. NO.

You will have to make one. There isn't even a t3 outlet flanged downpipe for that manifold WITHOUT a spacer that I'm aware of, let alone a crazy hacked together setup like that.
