    What i find seems to be the main problem is getting the turbo manifold for a rhd car without paying 1000 quid for it.

    How you getting around this? Making your own?

    How long before you make yours.

    All the ones iv seen have been in one full piece like a 6 branch manifold with the flange for the turbo facing up , where as the 325 has 2, 3 branch manifolds. So do you know if ur goin use the original manifolds and somehow join them together?

    Or you have not yet made plans for the manifold yet.

    I think the hardest part of making your own manifold will be making a decent merge collector unless your going to make a log type. Does no one make a cast iron log type manifold?

    I´ll be building a split scroll collector to take advantage of the turbo i´m using. No reason too through good technology out the window.

    Nobody does make a manifold for the RHD M50 so far.

    search ojz engineering on google, they supply merge collectors and are fairly well priced.

    Ok, are you going for a divided housing or a proper twin scroll. You should take a look at some of the turbos from the precision range with billet wheels or maybe some of the borg warner units. So far ahead of garrett in terms of compressor technolgy.

    I´m using a holset that is twin scroll and the manifold will be designed that way.

    Hey Gunni.

    What's happening with these ? Did you ever finish the plug and play vems unit?
    Cheers
