Default WTB - ilovetaco T3 mani and turbo

Looking for any cheap, dependable 1.6L T3 manifold, and a T3 turbo, preferably with feed lines and such.

Don't ask.

To the ****** (Bryce, not neogayness, although his orientation is up for debate as well) that posted before me...


I've ended up with enough parts that I just can't seem to sell, and a combination of good deals that mean I could do a $500 build.

Plus finals are about to be over...

Yes, it's for my gay friend that doesn't know how to tell his parents.

Not necessarily...

I'm on thin ice, a tight budget, and need a few deals to line up.

We'll see though.

I've got about $200 to play with for a mani and turbo, but am really trying to not turn this into a project. I already have the car apart, so bolting things (cheap things) back in would be easy. I don't think I'd save much for the work involved, and am only shooting for about 225whp.

Do ettttttttttt.

Sidenote, I have re-fallen in love with my bike again and it would make me cry to see it go for $500. I think I'm just going to keep it.

Good deal...I absolutely love riding again, and I honestly think it's sparked up my enthusiasm for a turbo car again. when the build got frustrating I knew I had to let it go since I was no longer enjoying it.

Now I've taken care of some time and money issues, am enjoying garage time again, and would be up for a bolt on affair if it's cheap and quick.

Honestly by the time I buy a welder, order flanges/pipe, practice and do it I'm sure I'd be back into forbidden project territory.

Long gone, I really should stuck with my T25 upgrade plans.

Parted everything out, but somehow am left with and intercooler setup, T3 downpipe, two exhausts (may have one sold), and two sets of wheels/tires, as well as an aluminum racing radiator.

I found a recent deal on good injectors and wideband, and if I build my own MS and can find a cheap turbo/mani I'm in business.

EDIT: BTW, I really shouldn't be doing this, so if anyone wants to talk me out of it go ahead.

You're going to have to have a custom downpipe made for the tacotaco manifold. It will cost you thousands.

(I'm trying to help)

It's built for the taco taco manifold? I can build you something for 200 bucks if you want. Even less if you are lookin to go REALLY cheap.

Edit: I have a junky T3 in the garage I can use for mockup and everything. Simple top mount log?
