Thanks I plan to address them for sure. Still have body kit and paint to do after I go single. Def a work in progress.

Thanks tjmhillz.. Next up is the single turbo swap. Manifold in. T4 divided entry with 4 bolt wastegate sus321!

Next up most likely:
BG S300 turbo
Tial 4 bolt wastegate
BOV (tbd)
Single waterneck
Turbo feed and return
SS wastegate line
Boost controller
Coat manifold after test fit

Nothing yet. Maybe another month or so for parts. Considering modifying the wastegate to v band instead of 4 bolt. Tial 4 bolt or HKS seems to be the only legit option which is fine but I like the cleanliness of V bands. For I just cruise round the corner and back once and a while then disconnect the battery lol... effin aristo auto ecu FML

You can buy the adapter that goes from 4 bolts to a v band.

I actually have been looking for one but only seem to find them custom made on other forums namely RXforums . If ya can please post up or pm me any links. I'd love to get one instead of chopping this one up. I really don't know how much off a difference it makes if the Tial 4 bolt will work with this manifold. Which I'm assuming it will but I could wrong..?
Thanks

I have the exact same manifold.....I had it modified to use the the tial 44mm flange...and supports welded on...Mine works just fine....it is just as simple as cutting the old 4 bolt flange off and getting the new 44mm flange welded on...




Here it is test fitted....

FYI....also to get this manifold to work with my S366 I had to get a 1/2 spacer as it was hitting runner #1

Thanks again Catman for posting up. I just remembered you replied to this thread while I was shopping for a turbo and forgot about it not clearing.... Still on the fence here. BW S360 .91ar , BWS62 FMW AR .91 or 1.00 ?? smaller ar? or Precision PT6266 CEA AR ,84 or 1.00 ?? If anyone has some suggestions please chime in. Goal is no more than a healthy 5-600 HP with some nice torque. I would still consider going with a cast manifold. I just don't want a lot lag which I know these big BW turbos can have.

Borg Warner S362 FMW .91 T4 twin scroll it is! Next up the Waste gate, Bov, Single Water neck, Downpipe and Exhaust. Goal is to get her running under her own power as is on about 12psi waste gate pressure. Maybe use a Apexi safc if needed but I'd rather wait for a EMS like AEM or Megasuirt etc. Unlike other brands When it comes to 2j's in my area finding tuners is not a problem. I would actually love to learn how to tune my own car to be honest.

She is here

Wastegate, Bov and I have to figure out the exhaust. Then she is ready for the installer/tuner.
