No it isnt a good choise , poor fitment , about have to remove the manifold to change the waste gate springs , poor design

I would go with the SPA manifold which is your cheapest option and it works great

Why not go with Tom's DIY kit? I don't have a link handy. Maybe Tom or someone will chime in.

oh but is that manifold and the spa one like a stock turbo type mod where it bolts on and starts working without intercoolers and everything else a turbo kit usually needs?

Whoa buddy stop right there. Read up on this stuff before you start asking questions like that. Get a general knowledge about turbos and then ask away. The sticky threads are a perfect start.
