    This is as far as the engine is now, just have to remove the turbo from the manifold, drill holes at the end of the crack and cut a V grove in it, get it welded put it on and its ready for the swap

    this brings me back to when i did my merkur swap. mine wasnt that dirty though LOL be prepared to fork out to rebuild it. i spent about a grand rebuilding mine. i picked up a complete merkur (not running, needed a little time, and smarts)
    its lookin good! keep us updated on it!

    Ya, the E6 has a little more meet around the area where your manifold is cracked. Just get ready for it to crack again...probaly sooner than later. I would take up hyperse7en on his E6 before I tried using a welded up E3.


    Best of luck,
    Ray

    I would take him up but I'll be upgrading to a bedder one this upcoming summer so I'll just wait for now, plus the engine will be stock for now as well because snow + power = ditch

    Well atleast you'll have plenty of experience in pulling manifolds come next Summer. So what is your goal for this car anyways? You must be planning something pretty serious if you need something better than a stock manifold?

    I want a 450-500 HP car, pushing 25PSI on a daily basis and run 30-35 PSI on the track, with no pinging and all on pump gas.

    I hope this aint to much to ask lol

    That isn't a unreallistic goal and a Ported E6 should do just fine. I would apply that money for a header towards a T3/T4 hybird. This will bolt right up to a stock manifold and is good for 450hp. You'll need a FMIC as well. The stock ones don't handle much more than 20psi I think but the hoses clamps usualy blow off around 18psi. It's been a while but that should be pretty close. The rest is typical stuff like built motor and a nice head.

    Anyone got an E6? no one around me will touch my manifold for less that $40, so what the hell.

    Shipping I have no clue, but my postal code is s0g-4c0 (p.o. box 216)

    You wanna drive that thing in the snow?

    Might consider just disconnecting the wastegate actuator over the winter....seriously.

    I have enough problems with wheelspin on wet roads in my car, I don't even try to drive it during the months of november through march.

    I have no option but to drive it in snow, its my only car right now.

    How much did you want for the manifold hyperse7en? If you could also figure out how much shipping is than that would be great.

    So like I said, disconnect the wastegate actuator...it'll make the car a hell of a lot more driveable in winter.

    Well I would listen to people if you want to see that 18th birthday. Just having zero boost and a limited slip is enough fun in the snow.
