Default T3 turbo mount onto a t25 flange?

I have a turbo with a t3 flange and am planning on buying an hks manifold for my 99. The hks manifold has a t25 flange. Will my turbo bolt up to the manifold?

since the HKS manifold is a top mount for the turbine, adding an adapter plate, or even welding one one will position the turbo way too high.

Go with the BEGi manifold, or even the ETD Racing one.

WOOHOO!!!! I love those pictures!!! There's an entire video of that chick photoshopped into all sorts of crazy poses!

And yes, do not buy an HKS mani for a T25. The only way to mate it up is to use an adapter like the one here: http://cgi.ebay.com/SR20DET-T25-T28-...QQcmdZViewItem
As said before, this will have your turbo sticking out the hood. Scrap the entire idea completely. Get a Begi manifold and sleep soundly at night knowing you've bought the best on the market. Yes, it's a bit more money, but this is the one piece of your kit you do not want to skimp. More people have more problems with manifolds than anything else when they cheap out.
