Hi, new to the forum and could really do with some advice on turbocharging my E36 325i Coupe M50B25 1994 model.
Ive been looking extensively for a manifold that will be suitable for a RHD vehicle and fit a T3/4 hybrid or GT35 turbocharger. There seem to be plenty of cheap manifolds on ebay but look pretty cheaply made and not suitable for RHD. But on the other hand I cant really stretch to a custom made manifold (£800 - 1200). Does anyone know where I can get a good quality RHD turbo manifold at a sensible price? Would it need to be a top mount unit?
Also I'm aiming for for around 320bhp+, is this realistic? and apart from a low compression headgasket the engine will be standard. I will be using a fairly large intercooler to keep the intake charge temperature down.
I understand that this is not going to be a cheap conversion for a reliable set up but would just like to keep costs down where possible but not at the cost of reliability.
Any help / advice on this is much appreciated!
