    hi yes managed to sort out the air mass meter issue, turned out the idle control valve hose was leaking boost and giving a higher air mass meter reading than it should have been.

    running 8psi with 65psi fuel pressure now and is running much stronger than before, tried 10psi but the injectors maxed out so will be running it at 8 for now until i can afford some bigger injectors. map sensor conversion and water meth kit.

    Hey there, in the middle of all this myself and the having the R/H/Drive turbo manifold problem. Where did you get yours from? been looking around for a while now and its doing my head in, I've bought a stainless steel version at a good price to butcher out the way of the steering shaft but still not sure where the turbo should sit fo best results. Can anyone help please. Cheers.

    Hi where are you based? Pop round if you are anywhere close to yorkshire. Its actually quite straight forward with just two m52 tubular manifolds, 2 correct diameter stainless u bends and a t3 flange then got creative and mounted the manifold where the air con compressor would go. Third year turbod and loving every minute of it running 20psi at the moment.

    Great project you've got!! Any pictures of your manifold set up?

    Looking into this myself, just want to see what I'm letting myself in for :-)

    I'm looking at boosting my E36's M50 vanos engine but on a mega low budget spec. I think I'm going to use a LHD manifold and flip it as a top mount.

    How much did you pay for your piggyback management and where did you get it?

    This thread has answered many of the questions I had so thanks
