Bent turbo manifold
« on: 01:49:39 AM / 14-Nov-12 »


Any chance that the little ding near the cam cover bolt will restrict flow?  It appears the whole manifold has been purposely bent so the cheapy china turbo will clear the engine mounts.  So angry right now!

I would be hard pressed to say anyone on this planet would notice the difference it would make to have it be not dented.

I keep my car cleaner then my room
Fuck you then, I'll take my movies, box of chocolates, bottle of wine and chloroform somewhere else.
Adding an SSD to that is kinda like strapping a 3 inch stainless HKS exhaust on a geo metro.

My only concern is that the heat will be more at that spot.

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch
