Default WTB: T3 Manifold, Downpipe, and BOV

Tell me what you have and how much you want for it. Browsing for some stuff for my T3 turbo setup. I have a 1996 Montego Blue, so, it's a 1.8. Thanks for looking at my add!

T3 Manifold





This would not fit my NB with the trubo i chose to use. Was designed to use on a NA 1.8 with a garrett 60-1

Does not include the wastegate.


Make me an offer.

Why would it not fit? I am interested if you think it will fit my 1.8 swapped '90 with a T3/T04E 50 trim. I am assuming by the wastegate dump position, that is a top mount?

Yes top mount. I have no way of knowing for certain if it will fit your combo.

That's one seriously good looking manifold, it looks like a top mount though. Pretty much what mine should look like only I want a bottom mount...

ps-please tell me that's not pink IC piping there...

Why did it not fit your car? Where was there interference?

Yes, very sick indeed I wish I could have used it..

The guy that made it said it had a life time warranty if it wasn't altered from his design. I'm not saying you are wrong only that it might be better to have him do the cuts so you can keep the warranty.


This is the shop that made it.:

Any closer than this? It looks like similar placement, just longer runners.

Looks like the manifold that Autolab custom built for someone, they're based in Louisville. It semi resembles the ETD racing manifold and I specifically remember someone saying that ETD has seen more failures in their manifolds that had relieve cuts than in manifolds without them.

It placed the turbine housing 1 inch from the MC? Must have been a seriously large turbine housing.

Is it just me or does the flange look very warped?

Shouldn't be any different, that is my concern. I wish you had pics to show the placement.

I'm tearing my car apart this week, if you want me to test fit it with photos that would a simple task for me to perform. You're about 200 miles from me, make a roadtrip. Then you can see my BEGI kit as well to see if that's what you want to use in replacement of this setup.
