    Does anyone know of any kits available for this? I imagine it really depends on the manifold being used so there won't be much. I was chatting to David at IE yesterday and he suggested making a hanger for the turbo to reduce the stress on the manifold during heat cycles. I know they're popular with the YB lot. I was thinking I could get some bosses welded to the cam cover, or try and use existing mounts.

    I've bought this:
    Integrated Engineering Turbo Support Bracket

    Only info I could find was on vortex:
    VWVortex.com - Turbo dampers GT30 tublar mani..?

    Thoughts? Needed?

    Yeah doesn't really give a solution though but it's true there's going to be movement. I think the rose jointed hanger will still allow some movement but obviously less. Haven't asked TSR yet. I guess it's not a relentless manifold after all. I just would like it to last.

    support or added strain?

    hanger did'nt work, as manifold expanded down and away from the head and the rose jointed hanger i made actually introduced the stress i was trying to combat

    my full race uses no support
