yeah you'll have to measure the port spacing.

iirc begi stamps 1.8 or 1.6 on them. not sure about fm.

I'm pretty sure that all of the cast-iron BEGI 1.8 manifolds have a casting feature on the side to accommodate the optional EGR port. A 1.6 manifold will not have this.

That looks like a Begi S5 manifold. Pretty sure those only came out for the BP's.

Edit: I see EGR; so BP it is.

That is most definitely a Begi S5 manifold. Do yourself a solid and call Bell Engineering in the morning. They will confirm for you that they made the S5 manifold for the 1.8's only.

You know I would wait and call them. Get the low down on what they still offer for that manifold, like downpipes, etc....

That wastegate placement is tricky (mine is the same way) and making your own downpipe for it would be a nightmare. I'd call and see if Begi still makes downpipes for that manifold and you could get the piece of mind knowing what you're getting into in full detail.

im not using the ext wg part. it just has it. or at least not for a while anyways. I have no interest in buying one from Begi anyways. if anything ill just run a pipe into the FM one I already have in the future. im starting with a gt2554r so its not really necessary.
