Default 1.8 TD04L Cast Manifold

Hey peeps,

I want to offer a Group Buy for a new cast manifold which I have been trying to make for a long time.
I already offer a log type manifold for the TD04L however feel 2 is better than one so here we are. If you are wondering why the TD04L and not something else is quite simple, cost.

TD04L turbos are readily available, cheap and when paired with TD04 19T Conversion Kit (Subaru) they can offer close to 290 bhp and still retain that nice daily drive.


This is the manifold



This is the current elbow that will come with the manifold if needed



This is the dp kit in 2.5" for current manifold


And this is the current manifold


Now , I want to offer a couple of options on this GB, however mainly it would be the manifold itself, the following are available as extra
-cast elbow I am currently making with 2.5" vband
-2.75" vband to cat for NB and NA
-2.75" Full exhaust on vbands with muffler

Prices
Manifold on GB 260 USD shipped, please note shipping is around 60 USD, so yes making them as cheap as possible because....
Manifold and cast elbow on GB $290 Shipped
Manifold, cast elbow and downpipe to cat 2.75" $550
Manifold and full system on vbands no cat (straight pipe on vbands) $900 shipped

Both the $550 and $900 setups include, oil water lines, engine fittings, actuator bracket, studs and copper nuts

You are looking at around 60 days wait, need 10 people to be able to go ahead. I actually need more but this is the allowance for MT, Europe will have 10 too

Requirements

Manifold - Payment in full for the manifold
Downpipe kit- Part Payment $300 balance in 30 days
Full exhaust setup - Part payment $300 then $300 installments or whatever you can
You need to cover the paypal fees, around 3%
There are no refunds if you change your mind, you can however transfer the order to somebody else
Payments are done through paypal as goods and services, you have 90 days to ask for a refund if goods are not delivered for example
Any questions please dont be shy

Does the pricing listed include shipping or just the price of the parts?

Just a quick update, decided to change the exhaust to 3" because it looks just so much cooler and on top of that paypal were kind enough to offer a loan so basically I will use that regardless of how many want to go ahead here, I would still suggest you get yourself on the list... hope in 10 days to have 3d work ready, then another 15 days for machining and pouring system and then casting which will be 2nd week in January

Downpipe 3" too? (I feel like this gets asked over and over, but it's kind of the standard for other kits here so I don't see why anyone would go for a 2.5" on a blank sheet build...).

Understood - was just asking because he said he was changing to 3"- has made the same change for the T25 ones previously (incl downpipe).

My reading of the original post was all options were using the 2.5 cast elbow for the start of the downpipes.

No problems though, can always get the manifold and get a downpipe fabbed locally.

Here is the final version, tried my best for ewg but the runner and flange combination didnt allow for it :(

I wanted to do away with one size of pipe, elbows and vbands for practical reasons, however I am quite easy on that as i got some more stguff in 2.75"

EGR will be a go!

Want to cast second week of February as the machines are quite busy, they will be putting on the machine in between jobs, which im hopeful will bring it towards first week of february

GB still going as above, I will answer all msgs IF I dont reply to your message by tomorrow pls msg me again. I can be found online on facebook on my page or whatsapp +447940043243
