Default "Rare" rover K series turbo manifold

Not sure if it's expensive or not but could be of use to someone that doesn't want to make their own manifold to move the turbo closer to the block

That is interesting, I guess they are priced as per demand

it does look quite nice and close to the block too!

Close to the block is good when fitting a standard GT20 turbo. Most are using a GT28 and clearance to the gearbox becomes an issue. I can only see this making it worse.

very reasonable price for a manifold thats snug and wont crack imho... in a few years youll be paying that for regular 1.8T manifolds as they become rarer.

Got fed up making my own and decided this was the best way forward, wasn't expecting it to reach anywhere near that price but the 2nd and 3rd bidder were only 3 and 10 away from what I won it for.

Just hope it fits now...

Wow! I thought it was a lot at 75..

I bought mine (standard Rover 75 one) for 20 posted from Peter Read. Cannot thank him enough!

All these silly bits mean the turbo build works out a lot more money than people realise. I'm over a grand into mine and think I have got a lot of bargains buying bits.

At 200its still a good buy, the alternative is a tubular welded manifold that'll just crack anyway. Or butcher a ca18det manifold like I did lol
