Me and 9BASE3 have those mani's on our car and they need to be modded to make the turbo clear the intakes on the bigger turbos.They might work with a T04B.My T04E is too big for it so I am building a spacer plate at work to see if I can make it work that way.Or else I need to modify the manifold itself.

i bought it, then put it back for sale on ebay. it's a nice piece, but wouldn't work for my application. I am using a t04s with a .96 turbine a/r, and the turbine hits the LIM. also, the flange that bolts to the engine was slightly warped, but that could easily be fixed. if you are running a turbo with a smaller exhaust a/r, it might be a good choice, but I didn't feel like modifying the manifold to make it work

Works great so far! After a bit of modding (for the .96 hotside) it fits great. I'm not using a HKS 50mm wastegate, so I had to weld a TIAL flange on top of the HKS flange (No biggie, 5 minutes) and everything works great. Still sits well up above the subframe and engine cradle and I have lots of room to work. I got it for like 150.00 so I'm not gonna complain!

My 1.32 housing is too big for it so I am building a adapter to bolt to the manifold to make it work.Looks great for the price.
