    Don't bother mate they are crap mine warped that much inside it was rubbing on the turbine wheel, others have had them warp that much they'd only just go back on the car after taking them off and refitting them and 1 guy's had his crack on him!!

    Just get a standard one, Regal do them for £50

    i managed to aquire one, but as said, regal do them - I believe they are refurbs/2nd hand, but will be fine.

    I had mine fitted by a local backstreet garage and it cost me £140. I had the 8 studs replaced, along with the 8 copper nuts. The manifold gasket was replaced.

    I believe there maybe 1 or two more gaskets on the turbo that could be replaced when the mani/turbo are separated - but we didn't know about them, so they were reused.

    Sorry no part numbers.

    HTH.

    I have a split on mine, it's boosting fine as it is (10Psi). Mine has been like that now for about a month.

    I believe Moffat had a crack in his manifold for nearly a year and it still boosted fine. Mine wasn't too bad, it just sounded bad until it warmed up and the crack shrinks a bit.
