    Today I bolted my manifold to my turbo and with everything provided I bolted it all up..

    After bolting it up from the turbo to the flange It covers the inlet area fairly well but there is about a 1 cm of like a circular lip that sticks out and is basically a hole in the inlet area.. Is there a certain adapter like flange I could purchase to fix this problem?

    I will get pic later..

    Thanks

    wow- that manifold sucks even more than i thought if this is the case.

    are you sure you have a t3 mani for a t3 turbo?
    or whatever combo you have?

    The flange is the square.. The little bit of circular round or whatever is what is not covered up and is basically two holes.. know what I mean?

    act if so I put the flange over the inlet part of the turbo, the circular parts are not covered up.. So basically they are holes

    well i dunno much about turbos but if you cannot replace the flange on the turbo than id say youll have to cut the flange off your manifold and have a new one fabbed up to fit the turbo....then rewelded to your mani.....but from the looks of it you haver a ssautochrome mani and for that matter by the time you were done with all that you could have sold it on ebay and bought somrhtyin nicer
