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 CatMan much appreciated info. I like the Vband idea. I think it was ur build were i read about needing a spacer. I was thinking of maybe adding a QSV. I really and more in interested with torque for the time being as opposed to straight up high HP. I didn't however want a cast manifold which would have made that easier to achieve. So I'm thinking of something smaller from BW or add the QSV with the S366.
