    vxr,let mani, same???

    im getting conflicting answers to whether the vxr and zlet manifold are the the same.
    as need a replacement for my vxr to save forking out for a new turbo wen mine has only done 6k
    so are they identical?

    I done some research on this andy, and yes they are, some will tell you that the cast is slightly different, and thinker on the leh manifold, but it is just a myth..They are both the same thickness cast, and the same dimensions etc.. There was talk that VX strengthened the cast on the leh manifold, but don't think they did as the leh ones seem to crack just as much as the let ones..

    Why do they have different part numbers?

    I have 2 turbos outside, LET and LEH both in bits can compare absoluetly anything on them from manifolds to journal bearings.

    I'm sure theres a different in the manifolds, infact alot is different it just looks the same.

    I don't know the exact difference mate, the manifolds have different part numbers for whatever reason I don't know. So there must be some changes or just a updated revision. As for differences i was meaning the VXR turbo as a whole. Lots of different part numbers etc.

    Want pictures of anything I can get it.

    Only think I cant photo is the VXR shaft as its snapped, Jafo666 has half, other half is in my mates toolbox.
