I got my one from the states was best option because tdi north and cpl wanted 900 but a full race plm or similar will work good

The BWR / blackworks Ones seem to be very good value, and a much better fit/ design than the PLM. Around 600 inc postage and tax to the UK.

far better than BWR in my opinion

Either use a sandwich plate or look up LMA oil sensor adaptor. It's a remote mounted adaptor so no broken T pieces in the block.

You need 1/8bsp for the oem oil sensor, and 1/8npt for the oil feed. You can then adapt this to an-3 to feed the turbo

Can only recommend what I know fits into UK spec ep3s. I'm sure there are much better manis out there but unfortunately there isn't much support for Uk cars.

My favourite mani is the nortech one. UK built with CNC collector and wastegate priority placement. Best part of 1100 ish but lifetime warranty that is credible for UK.

It's got better last couple of years. If you want to do your own build its still either piece your own together or chance a ready made kit and 95% of the time have to mod the kit.

You COULD run a basic log manifold and go for a GT30R setup, that would get you at your power goal and be easy to purchase online AFAIK. But, I don't know the UK setup/layout. You would be better with a tubular manifold though, a sidewinder can easily be attained, but could be a bit pricey to ship. Would be worth the money though, depending on which you get.

Did you look into any of the ones people suggested earlier in this thread? sstream

Try a precision 5858 should get you to your power goal fairly Easyer. I run a 6262 and I'm around that power with 9 psi

Both of these, well all 3, are great options. The goal here, sstream, is to not barely make your power goal because your system will be limited in one or more aspects for the future when you want to make some more power. It will also result in parts not lasting as long/lack of safety for your motor. A GT30R, PT5558, PT5858, and even a 6262 will all hit your power goal and make over 500whp as well. And that's at less than 20psi for all of them (depending on supporting mods, of course). The importance is not the power you will make, but HOW you will make the power. If you use a little GT28R, which I had on my first build, you will have great mid-range power in your powerband but will be limited at the top end due to our higher redline. If you go with any of the 3 we all suggested, as examples, you will still have great power mid powerband but really pulls up top. And when you're racing/spirited driving, you're at the top of your powerband nearly the entire time.

I suggest a sidewinder or top-mount manifold for your setup. Do you know what is available around you? I KNOW we can make this setup work. The option Gerry6262 could work: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/320781364573

Isn't that a PLM mani? If so needs modding to fit a UK k20a2

The site says K-Teller, and I edited my post to 'could' work. Didn't mean it to be a definite fit, I don't know the UK chassis. But I'm trying to help this guy out. What are restrictions that need to be worked around?

Jonezy
12-05-2015, 12:23 PM
Didn't mean anything by it mate, no worries.

I only asked as it looks very much like a PLM,

When bolted on it gives little to no room for even the most compact wastegate due to the path the water lines take. So this is sorted by moving it towards the T3 flange slightly. Gives a bit more space and improves Gate placement a little too.

Other issue is once everything is bolted up it gives no great option for where to send the dump tube as the manifold is kinda in its own way if you follow me. Currently working on getting a viable route for the dump tube providing it fits down between the gearbox and the steering rack

Should know writhing next couple of days. Will fire a load of pics up. When we get there.....

We also found the bolt holes in the flange line up very well

Gerry6262
12-05-2015, 01:11 PM
The manifold shouldn't need modding remove the water bypass valve and lengthen the water hose and should be fine

Looks good! What turbo will you be mating it with? And do they have a downpipe for it or can you get any downpipe? I have a top-mount, so I don't know how downpipes work with sidewinder setups.

He does downpipe, screamer, 3" catback and cooler pipes to match too, just give him the car and your turbo and builds it all to fit.

Will need to relocate heater hoses, heater control, fuel feed, brake booster hose though. But you will have to do this with any sidewinder,

Ah bugger your location may make the manifold difficult from solid fab, maybe worth asking though. He usually asks to build on the car for perfect fitment. Couple of lads on the UK forum from NI/ROI maybe able to point you in the direction for a good mani/downpipe combo that doesn't mean coming to the mainland.

Most buy a manifold and make their own downpipe though.

We're here to help. Provide us with pictures of your engine bay, front, drivers/passengers side, back of the bay by the firewall, and a horizontal one so we can see what needs to be avoided and worked around. We'll do our best to eye it out with what manifolds might fit and make a selection from there. Easiest case might just be a top-mount. We'll see

From what I've seen and tried on UK cars,

Full race, TD autowerks, MAP performance, F5 performance, AFI, spooling fabrication, nortech and solid fabrications all fit and work fine with no issues with reference to turbo and wastegate. Just the usual relocation of fuel, water and brake booster lines which you have to do with pretty much all k20s

However, all require modded off the shelf downpipe and screamer or a custom/ home made affair. Which tbh, isn't all that difficult if you can borrow a MIG welder just for tacking.

From UK myself if you need anything

sstream - mate of mine had his setup mapped this week just gone, using a lightly modded PLM mani and downpipe.

as said mani needed a little tweak to clear the wastegate away the water pipe on the block and to improve wastegate placment a little. downpipe also needed a tiny little bit of modding to avoid hitting the floor, ARB and subframe.

results ended up good! 357bhp and 271lbsft at the fly at 7 psi on a gt3082 .82 turbo. only reason they stopped at that was his boost solenoid turned out to be a 2 port affair somehow so had limited affect on increasing boost, and he also only has a 2.25" catback so pushing past 350bhp would have caused strange graph lines. he is expecting an easy 400bhp at 10 psi once all issues have been adressed.

That is a hell of a restrictive exhaust!! For sstream, a PLM mani and 3" downpipe would be nice when coupled with a GT30R.

As for mentioning/tagging someone, type @ and the user's username immediately after. So, I would type @ jonezy but without the space between the @ and the username, resulting in this: Jonezy
