    Garrett me thinks

    I'm wanting to swap to a garrett turbo set-up soon as the standard kkk units are just not reliable enough. Been thinking of getting the parts separate as I reckon it'll work out cheaper. Been looking at the cast manifold from courtenay and probably a gt28 but can't seem to find a downpipe anywhere Any suggestions? This is the set-up from courts http://www.courtenaysport.co.uk/inde...wDoc&docId=162

    You will be able to buy the exhaust flange from were ever you get the turbo from then any good place that makes exhausts will be able to do the rest.

    I see courts do a downpipe to go with their tubular manifold but i'd prefer the cast manifold. Am I right in thinking both manifold would house the turbo in different locations? Meaning the downpipe would only suit the tubular set-up?

    Would be easier to buy this

    http://www.owendevelopments.co.uk/pr...asp?prodId=329

    and get a exhaust place to do the rest.

    (the above is assuming you want to run internal wastegate)

    Yeah i'd just keep the internal wastegate. That looks like a good option.
