why would you bother importing one?
I agree it seems like an expensive way to go about it.

But I just don't have the skills or tools & equipment to make a custom turbo exhaust manifold. No dramas with the intake side, intercooling and EGT gauge but exhaust fabrication is not my forte and I imagine it would be pretty exy to get someone else to do it?

Which is why I posed the question about importing just the exhaust manifold and fuel pump.

Hello fellow OzBenzers ,
A little update the coal grenade has been performing well , for the last 3 mths fuelling has allowed me to reach wastegate pressure (21psi ) and the performance has been strong once on boost , considering the age of this engine I am very happy ,Now my wife has a new car it's time to refine and push the limits a little further and once I have a free spot in the shed I will be changing a few things around !

Cheers Anthony
