Default What manifold will keep AC&PS 01-05

Just a question here. Looking to buy a manifold and other pieces one at a time over the winter. I have a 2004 MSM and will be upgrading the manifold, turbo and downpipe.

What manifold will fit the 1.8 and allow keeping the AC&PS?

Thanks

That's pretty much what I figured.

Another question:
If I run a FM log manifold, and use a "chin-charger" until I find the 2560 I want can I use the FM downpipe and then use the same config when I get the 2560? Basically is the T25 design the Chinese unit the same footprint of the Garrett unit?

Thanks

Assuming you get the correct china charger then yes the foot prints should be the same.

you don't. for example, my godspeed 30r was advertised as the "traditional" 5bolt outlet, and looks exactly like it, yet each bolt is just a few mm off making it completely not work with a "traditional" 5bolt downpipe.

just start with the proper turbo and don't beat around the bush

I agree. Every single time I have tried to cheap out the first time I ended up spending more money to do it right the 2nd time. I had an air bagged S10 that would lay frame. I re-bagged 3 times before I got it right!!
