    My opinion, look closer to home. That's expensive and you can probably add another 100 pounds for delivery if you want it to arrive in one piece. I'd mail him and ask what hes seen it used on. Like everything else when turbo'ing, its gonna go horribly wrong at the weakest link, so doing it in the cheap isn't a good idea.
    Things to do:

    Buy a petrol fuelled BMW again

    Looks quite solid to me. It also states "lifetime warranty", so makes me think it might actually be as solid as it looks.

    But then again, ,someone with turbo experience should chip in and throw an opinion..

    Consider the shipping and tax (20% iirc) for this, though.
    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    thats an expensive manifold, and probably LHD version.

    I'd investigate getting one made, probably cheaper.
