Arrow RS turbo manifold for spi?

So i found my rs manifold that i purchased awhile ago and i heard that it can fit on the spi engine with small mods...now my question is what are the small mods and what turbo do they use?

If it's from a Escort RS 1.6 turbo, then you wont have to mod the flange at all, it will bolt right up. But the SPI uses "D" shaped exhaust ports, while the old 1.6 has "o" shaped ports. Should'nt cause a problem, but it might have a gasket leak.

It should fit the Foci engine bay well, there's no front engine mount or PCV block hole to get in the way like there is on the Escort SPI. You'll need a custom down pipe, and I think thats it, just the normal turbo stuff.

A small T3 will get close enough to the fans that it WILL melt the the plastics and the wires. A cheap, slim fan from Summit or Jegs will remedy that no problem.

Get a front mount fan, and stay away from the ching chong meow ebay turbo's, I know there super shiney and cheap, but get a real Garrett T3.
