    my 'guess' is that if it did fit at the cylinder head side of things then the other end wouldn't as it would need a different flange to hold a T3. the diesel turbo wouldn't work well on a petrol engine due to heat issues. (this is only a guess driven from experience of trying to turbo petrol engines with diesel turbo's) i dont know what turbo the tds uses or what power your looking for.

    As per my previous post, totally different.If the spacing is right you may be able to strap it down

    If I have to explain it you probably can't do it But it's either that or say a 1/2" steel sandwich plate if the spacings are remotely right.

    i understood what you meant by 'strap' which i thought was quite funny! sorry lol. but it could work if there wasn't such an issue with pressure and heat, why not just weld the petrol flanges onto the td manifold?

    That´s going to be harder then any other solution.

    Making a log manifold could work out nicely even on the cheap.
    With great challenges comes great engineering.

    Looking at the pics the TDS is basically a log, built with forced induction in mind but not flow.

    Yes it would work, but nay way you can gain flow pays dividends

    If space is the issue use standard manifolds and put the turbo on the other side near plenum and make custom down pipes to link to turbo.

    Better for peak power worse for lag. Probably a hybrid a good choice to balance the two or a smaller than anticipated turbo but if not opening up to lower compresson you would do that anyway.

    Oh yeah, nitrous assist turbo to reduce lag lol

    Thanks for All the info guys, I got to look at the tds manifold yesterday and it won't Work without major modification, nearly more than the m50 manifolds.

    I have a couple of ideas in regards to modify the standard m50 ones, but have also been looking at ebay ones for lhd Cars, I have been told these Will Work if u cut off the turbo flange and angle it away from the head and reweld, then its just a mater of extending your down pipes To join up With the turbo.

    Any thoughts on that

    It can work, but there is just SO little room for a top mount in a RHD car.

    I am in the distinctly lucky position to own both an E34 525i petrol with M50B25 engine and an E34 525TDS with M51 engine.

    The 525i petrol is being built as a (very) budget track car and I have also been thiking of fitting a turbo. I bought the manifold in the following pictures from ebay last year for just this purpose. There where a fex advertised at around the £120 mark though mine was less than half that as it was an unused second hand item.








    Hope this helps.

    Smiler.
