The bolt pattern is for a T3, the port is small obviously because they didn't use box tubing that matches the T3 turbine inlet instead of that puny piece of pipe. Can u haz flowz restricionz? I particularly like the head flange, the started cutting it and stopped on both sides.

Yeah i was lazy and just wanted it on the car, i also used hydraulic lines for oil lines and sewage couplers for intercooler piping.

The tube was what i had left over cheaper than box tubing. Plus it was a tiny turbo.

Begi makes a T3 manifold and a downpipe for them as well. Just have to call and ask for it.

it may be a custom BEGi DP, but nothing they they couldn't whip up easily for you and send it along with your manifold.

Out of all the work put into that thing the manifold flange cut out on the bandsaw looks like a fifthgrader did it? Talk about going outside the lines!
