    Maybe, although having the k04 hybrid inside sticker could almost be like having a tdi badge on the back if it ends up like Bills Ibiza back in the day...

    I'm not convinced that is going to be true mate to be honest. That hybrid will be hard to beat in the respect of power delivery.

    Ye I do agree it is a very expensive mani but it does work but weather the gain is worth the price, probably not. I would have thought a SEM mani on yours or Pauls setup would give very good gains.

    So... I won't having that AJH manifold then. Turns out the bloke is cock knocker and has decided he wants more money for it.

    To be fair, it looks like a bit of an arse to fit. The runners, being slightly curved, means that the entire manifold sits a little to the left of the OEM one. I'm concerned that on fitting, there will be space issues with the charge pipe.

    Also, all the attached sensors to the manifold will have to have the wiring extended to make them fit into their new holes - the IAT being the main one.

    Not worth the hassle, I will just port mine....

    Assuming you mean with regard to the inlet manifold? Two realistic ones. Port my own out as much as possible, mainly the inlet port to try and produce less of a step on the way into the head. Also, I could look at buying an after market inlet manifold - however this is going to be VERY costly, and it's money I don't have.

    I did think about this, however the problem would be that you would have to weld it directly onto the plenum to achieve the best effect, and that would be a bit of a pain TBH.

    Shame about the manifold would have been interesting Welly.

    What about one of these:-

    Yep that one is, but they do mention in the description that they do a design for large port heads and/or the runners do look 'large'

    Good progress yesterday - a day off (with a few errands to run as well) an the lovely weather made me crack on.

    Did my most hated of jobs - removed the engine mount, reset the tensioner and installed the new cam belt. Thank god that's out of the way!

    Started off by taking some comparison shots of the turbos as the hybrid is going today:



    I also took my 'mocked' (or bodged) oil lines up to the hydraulics company who will be making them. Was hoping for them to be back Friday -however that wasn't to be - Monday they should be sorted.



    Then moved on to created the correct shape and size charge pipe....



    Then carried on my manifold porting work.... The first picture shows the difference between the porting of one side and not the other, and then the completed port.





    Then prepped my new TIP with the parts bought for it. I have decided the have the 007P welded directly to the 3" alloy on the TIP rather than mess about with hoses connecting it. Not sure how this will work out, however time will tell....



    Then finished a few other housekeeping bits and bobs.

    Finished up the night with this:



    Well deserved - I was knackered.

    I would say it is next to impossible mate to be fair. The need for studding the turbo requires the head to be off really...

    A few bits ordered arrived through the post today - turbo hoses and a few other odds and ends.

    The inlet manifold is finished, rocker cover repainted, turbo hoses trimmed and fitted, throttle body ported.

    Awaiting a few bits now and I can start putting it all back together...

    Some photos:

    My Dremel mate, with sanding bits to give a nice smooth taper. Seems to have worked really well and hoping that it will help the transition from small port to large port.

    It is the standard TB yes, I've deliberately left it with the rough finish - I think it will help the water meth atomise on the way through the TB.

    I like having something in hand to get on with - I get bored easily... lol

    Turbo choice was down to several factors. Availability, price and the need to do something different. With respect there are a few GT30 builds these days, however you don't see as many IHI builds.

    Also, If the turbo goes south it's very easy to get another, and very easy to fit in top mount form.
