    over the winter I plan on piecing together a turbo kit for my b20. and I was wondering if ones like the cheap ebay ones would actualy fit an EF hatch. I don't plan on going the rout but I just didn't know how common they were or if I would have to get one custom made.

    thanks

    it really depends on your manifold position and the actual turbo you end up using... then, you gotta clear the car/subframe/motor from there.

    so, odds are, you're going to have to go custom.

    yeah I was hoping that wouldn't be the case. I planned on running a cast log mani, and I think it's a 14b (something pretty small around that size) I don't know if that helps at all, but I guess I'll just have to find out when I get the stuff.

    you might get an e-bay one then modify it to fit. you can get lucky and get a fairly good on on ebay. i got one from there but i sent it back and never used it. i needed a totoal custom job!

    theres really no point in running a ram horn on a 14b or anything of that tiny size. spool is already not an issue, and those manis are 4x the cost of a log.

    very true..... ram horn is for making serious power.......if i just ran 10psi on my set up i would have stayed with a log mani. unless you really want to go all out than log is fine.
