    what would be needed to get the oil and water lines fitting?

    cheapest way for the manifold would be 200sx manifold £189.99 + z20let flange £45-50 and weld the z20let flange to the 200sx manifold once the 200sx flange has been removed and whaat ever the person charges you for doing it

    but your looking at £300

    cheapest for turbo would be to get it imported from the states or if you know someone who already does this get them to get you one and it saves on duty to be paid

    Adam I think you would struggle to use a VXR LEH Manifold in a Garrett Conversion. To be honest I couldn't see it being up to the job of running or supporting the turbo for both the heat produced and the build quality. I think the standard manifold would break in less than 1000 miles... The cast manifolds used on the garrett kits that both Courtenay and Regal sell are uprated. The same spec as the dbilas ones...
    Star Silver SRI Turbo..'Red.Dot Reloaded'..Cybox Precat, Cybox Catback SS Exhaust..K&N Panel Filtered...9Ltr EDS SMIC!!.....
