how would this fit 1.9 or 2.0 with the egr tube
Hasn't this been gone over before? The SPI header sits at the same height that the SPI Manifold does for where the cat bolts up that's why it can be used as a direct replacement for it, you don't have to move the cat or anything. Just unbolt old heavy mani and install shinny header. So for turbo applications it would sit at the very same spot as the regular mani. which has been decided by a majority of people to be TOO low for a turbo and adapter plate. But since it isn't cast it could be cut and rewelded with a new flange, a TURBO flange, any TURBO flange. :twisted: But who could afford to buy it and then CUT it up??? 8O I wish I could. I bet that it would flow much better.marclar said:
You could however take that money you saved by buying the JGS mani and chrome plate it for that ultimate bling bling factor. :lol: Or better yet get it powder coated your favorite color!!!Jeffescortlx said:It would be a combination of the high heat (can reach 1200º) and a heavy turbo pulling down. With some brakets holding the turbo, and the flange relocated higher, it might not crack, maybe.
But as said before, that's a lot of money to spend for a manifold that might not work.
The JGS manifold is about 1/2 the price, and will work for a turbo manifold, it just is'nt all blingy.
