    Ok im toying with the idea of making my own manifolds so i can turbo a spare 325 engine i have, i have plenty of e36 exhaust manifolds i can mess about with to try and get wat i need, but what i need to no is can the orginal e36 manifolds be modded to hold a turbo?

    I have made up a quick diagram of what i was thinking in my head. Can any one confirm if this would work?

    Looks like you are only going to use 2 branches out the 6 for the turbo?

    I have wondered if you could use the exhaust manifold off the 325tds but I guess not or everybody would be doing it......

    Get the petrol and diesel exhaust manifold to head gaskets if they are a one piece gasket (well bouble so 3 per I think) compare
