    z20let replacement turbo

    I am trying to get a replacement turbo for a z20let seen as mine has gone.

    what options do i have?

    i cant seem to find just a turbo unit, they all come with the manifold etc witch i dont need?

    you will find it very hard to find a turbo for the z20let without a manifold as there normally sold as a unit due to the design of the turbo being encorprated stright into the manifold unlike other turbos that are bolted to the manifold, go on ebey and u can get a z20let turbo used but in all good working order for £150-£200 then you can take the turbo off and have a spare manifold as the z20let manifolds are very prone to cracking so its good to have a spare
