Default 1.6 manifold, SR20 T25, 3" downpipe

Up for sale is my Stainless Steel tubular turbomanifold, an SR20 T25 turbo, rebuilt about 2 years ago, and a 3" bellmouth downpipe. I will leave the oil and water fittings on the turbo for the next person, but you'll have to source your own lines and fittings for the engine side of things.

The rough aspects of this setup.
This is not a bolt-on setup! It will not work with A/C or Power steering! You'll have to flip your mixing manifold around to face forward and either delete your heater core or work something else out to keep it, it wont work with the stock configuration anymore. The head flange needs to be resurfaced. The downpipe will be open-ended so you'll either have to get a flange welded on locally to connect it to your exhaust.

I really do like this setup and hate to sell it but i'm up against a wall right now. I absolutely cannot find work so toys have to go. I can always build myself another setup later.

Disclaimer:
I'm selling this setup to pay bills and buy groceries next month so I will not be able to give any kind of refund whatsoever. Once you send money, its yours because the money will disappear instantly. Its a great setup if you're handy with doing some custom work and it is pretty much solid except for a leaky head flange (and even then I hit full boost at 3100rpm) but I offer no guarantees on anything.

i have an absurdflow mani on the way and a gt28r in my garage... so I'll be the first to get in line for a possible part-out which probably wont happen since this is a great deal

what is the material of the dp? i'm guessing stainless due to vband, but it doesnt look stainless

Sorry, should have specified. Downpipe is not stainless and is aluminized steel. Basically mild steel with an aluminum coating.

I never have been much of a gambler.

Good thing no one's got any awesome deals going in the FS section so I'm not tempted to start another build...

I will not sell this to you just out of principal.

Seriously, not to toot my own horn but this setup is a great compromise between having a proper merge collector and the cost effective log manifold.

I should also mention that the manifold is EXTREMELY light weight yet very sturdy. Made from Schedule 10 stainless. Trade in your cast manifold setup for this and dump that boat anchor for something that flows better

Sale may be off pending an interview I have tomorrow afternoon.

I knew posting up a part-out thread would get me a job!

You're a champ for that. I just got home where I can see the photobuckets, and I was about to do something stupid.

Hope you land the job tomorrow and can keep enjoying your sweet setup (and groceries). I came *this* close to losing my job myself today, and will be busting my *** to keep it. Wasn't my fault really, just found out the project I've spent three months on was an utter waste of time, and have to make myself really valuable really fast.

I wish you the best. If you can, don't eat for several hours before the interview. A full belly makes you more complacent and less aggressive, and you push harder when you're hungry. It will show...look hungry.
