    z20let turbo manifold

    hi guys looking for a bit of advice. for a while now i have had a strange noise coming from my engine everytime i start it there is a fluttering sound for about 2or3 minutes then disapears and has been steadly getting loader . so thought tonight i would have thorough look at it and after taking the heat shield of the manifold i have a big crack about half way round it now the question is could i get this welded or am i aswell to cut my losses and get a new one . the car is now on 84k miles on the original turbo. its annoying as the turbo is still good any advice would be appreciated

    right had a go at welding it today but the crack is worse then i thought managed to weld the top fine but there is big crack underneath aswell which theres no way of getting to without removing it. so i have just went and ordered a vxr turbo from courtney sport as i dont want the car to fail with us as its needed every day i know what my job is .next weekend

    I have been told that Regal will sell you a 2nd hand manifold for £50, and then you only have to fit it.
