i have 2 questions, the first one is, in the picture above, do i use a regular t3 to hf adapter plate or one made for my turbo, (came off a volvo) and my second question is, when using a hf mani, can i use an external wastegate and if so wheres the best place for it
just get a cast iron manifold. the compressor will hit the block if you go with the t3 hf combo. unless your fine with cutting up the webbing on your block, then it will clear fine.
edit: you can turn the turbo around and it might clear but my local exhaust shop would have charged my almost double for making the extra bends in the downpipe
