    Can you swap a cracked manifold for a new one on a turbo?

    Basically if the exhaust manifold is cracked on a turbo, can it be swapped for one that isnt or is that game over throw it in bin?

    is there any difference between a vxr one and a gsi one? Basically if i have a vxr turbo with a cracked manifold, can i use the one off my standard turbo to replace it with? Are they different?
