    Mate, that does look tight. I recon the turbo will sit right where the steering UJ is.....

    The guy may not have had problems in Europe because they are LHD there...

    cant remember where i read it but someone was talking about turbo manifolds made for lhd cars and used them on rhd cars by mounting the manifold upside down but then that could make more problems, may not of even been on a bmw though

    I would try and mock fit it first mate. Its a strange one, i deffo dont think it will fit it the turbo goes under the manifold, but it may fit if goes on top like 318i said. What turbo is supposed to bolt on to it?
    Whatever way, i think it will be tight because the is engine tilts over on the exhaust side...
