What cams do you recomend for that set up.
ATP exhaust Manifold ?
APR intake manifold ?

I recommend the CAT 101 3653.
For the exhaust- I think what fits best will be a consideration. I am unfamiliar with the kit car of which you speak. ATPs mani works well, as does the PAG parts. I'd figure out which way is most convenient to mount the turbo and go that way. A tubular like the Full-Race will make more power, but is more expensive and takes more room.
There are lots of intake manifolds now. APRs looks very nice, I know the Roass MAchine ones are good. There are also the USRT, OO7, ABD, Hypertune and probably others.

Re: New 1.8T Build (scooby8272)

Yoy may get some inspiration from this guy in the UK who is putting a 1.8T in his Lotus Elise and aiming for circa 350bhp with a GT28rs. Obviously you would be looking at a slightly bigger turbo etc....

If you need specialist parts Bill at Badger 5 (UK Based) on these forums should be able to help too

A 35r wont be very responsive for the type of driving that car is meant for. Which I think is why Bobqzzi reccomends the 3071r. The Biggest you would want on that car is a 3040r.. even still If I were building a car such as that I would match it up with a 3076r .63 http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
