Re: Can I make a turbo manifold out of the dual outlet mani? (Satur9)

better yet just flip it upside down like you have it int the pic. Make a adapter and your set. You will have to make the adapter angled forward.

I have seen it done, and it was like Zornig described. (Flipped over).
However, I would definitely avoid welding cast iron at all costs. You can make a nice mild steel adapter faily easily.
Good luck!

Not if you make it transitional. Use a flange with two holes, and use two weld-els to make a merge collector. Done! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: (Satur9)

That setup will not work on your 85 unless you have a crossflow head. I had issues with a friends turbo not clearing the solid shift linkage (stock motor). It gets really tight on the counter flow heads back there with a turbo.
Looks like a GREAT setup for a cross flow though!
