For fun - the 99 cent turbo manifold.
A long time ago I won an incorrectly listed ebay auction for a sr20 manifold and turbo for 99 cents.
Fast forward a few years and instead of renovating the bathroom, I was cleaning the shed, and came across it on the shelf, dusted it off and set about making it fit the pinto.
This was more a proof of concept, too see if it would actually fit, as i had heard it was close but had never seen a completed version. Therefore, it isn't pretty, however given the relative ease of fitment, I would be keen to try it out with a decent tubular manifold and actually spend some time on it.
Will let the pics do the talking.
Manifold and turbo as i got it.
Check for fitment next to old extractor flange
Trim excess to suit
Place flange over manifold, align and tack to suit
Bolt to head, weld around where possible. Then removed from head, cut a little more off for exhaust studs and welded completely
Filled port mis-match with weld
Quick tickle with the die grinder
Will be interesting to see how it holds up and if it stays together.
Turbo placement is a little to the rear but still enough for a downpipe.
Would be a viable option for one of the many cheap tubular manifolds on ebay,
