Turbo w/ internal wastegate

Alright i bought a turbo with an internal wastegate a while ago for my focus. Im only planning on running 7-8 psi. Im in the process of getting a manifold for it and the guy i was talking to told me that there is problems getting an internally wastegated turbo to fit in the focus. Just wondering what everyone here says and if anyone here has theirs internally wastegated.

Here is a pic of my turbo



Thanks

The problem usually has to do with the wastegate itself, It adds bulk to the turbo in an already cramped space. Its possible with modifications, but it seems getting a Tial would be more effiecent...

yes but it also sits lower than a log manifold would, thus it clears alot more things.

As tom mentioned, you could pay the $$ for a xios manifold as well, or have someone make you a tubular manifold and have the turbo in a different place as long as you arent planning on having a log manifold or anything

yeah that is a down fall to a lower mounted turbo. but it is a nice kit cause you can keep your a/c if you choose.
