The interchangeability of 1800 and 120 components means you can get a pretty good idea of the hassle involved by looking at those swaps too.

Not enough, I'm afraid. If you mount the block upright so the turbo clears the steering then there's not enough room for the later inlet manifold. I forget if the k jet swan neck maifold fits with...

Come on, don't swap in an M cam.

You don't have to choose between low-power factory cams and stage II cams, you can get a stage I cam.

Hopefully you will ask your welder to keep the two halves of the manifold separate until your single...

It would be better to cut the divider in the manifold to join the scrolls then. That way you can swap it/ get it repaired more easily than a drilled turbo when you decide to do it properly.

Yeah but half of your turbo *isn't* internally waste gated. Adding two waste gates to the manifold (and not using the internal waste gate) is the easiest way of venting both scrolls.

Have you got a photo of that installed?

Are the two merge collectors joined by the piping that goes to the wastegate?

Thanks. I got around to finding a place for the valve to go that means I can use an existing hose to reach the manifold.

Does the other end have to be plumbed in to the intake after the turbo?...

I'd be really interested to know if there's something around the 60lb mark with a narrow cone. I was going to use Siemens Deka 60lb injectors but they have a 30 degree cone.
