Looks good Mark! Is this a copy of the Delta Manifold? Looks like it in the pics as this was the way I thought about going but if I wanted to keep the turbo front facing it didn't seem like there was going to be room being so close to the thermostat and radiator. I'm def. interested as soon as you get it all together as I'm on the fence on whether to fix my stock turbo manifold or buy something new like this which in the end might even be cheaper and new without the worries of it cracking again.

I'm very interested in what you come up with as far as a kit goes, will you be offering a downpipe and intake pipe as well? Any ETA on the finished kit? Let us know when you have more updates because I'm sure there are a lot of guys like me who are anxiously awaiting a complete kit. It sure will save me a lot of time, headache trying to find some one to weld up mine and then source or rebuild my original turbo which looks to be shot. I would rather choose from the new turbos on the market which are a lot more advanced from the turbo days of the early 80's, lol...

Very cool, just when I thought I had given Mark all my money... Can't wait until you go have it on a car, I would love to see a dyno graph on the performance compared to a stock engine. I am glad ther are shops like yours still pushing out innovative products and ideas!!

Hey Mark,
Any progress with the turbo kits? Not trying to be pushy, just excited just like so many others :)

Thanks

Would the kit be a/c friendly? That would be gloriously amazing.

Doubt it. The turbo is where the AC compressor would be.
