    Anyone know if I can use the Fiesta 1.6 turbo manifold on my 89 1.9 HO head? I am thinking about putting a T25 turbo instead of a VJ11/VJ14 hybrid. If not what european CVH equipped vehicle has the same port shape and pattern as my 89 HO head?

    This is one I found on ebay

    Well I found one and I bought it. The seller has been really cool for me. He even replied last night at 12:00am

    The total looks to be around 315, however, I will be working some overtime next week to return some money lol. Its pricey I agree, but a good fellow member Lowscort posted me some pictures of this on his HO 1.9, I wouldnt have attempted to buy it without his proof. His picture made so much peace of mind for me. I thank him for that!!! Here is what it looks like.

    Yes the RS manifold from the UK MK3/MK4 RS turbo Escorts will bolt on. The problem as I understand it is that there are clearance issue's on the 2nd and 3nd gen cars when using the RS manifold. I'm sure someone else on the form can explain more. The only reason more people aren't using the UK manifold is the cost of having it shipped over. There not hard to find. At least one a week is posted on eBay UK, if not more.
