ST165 turbo on a St185 manifold...is it possible?

Postby TexasAlltrac » Mon Sep 27, 2004 2:05 pm

Last week, I pulled the exhaust manifold to replace a gasket that seemed to be leaking. What i found instead was a hairline crack at #4 that is the cause of the leak.

I am wanting to swap over to a T26 turbo later which I would need the ST185 manifold for. But for the time being, my turbo I have now works great.

The question is, can I use the ST185 manifold with my current ST165 turbo so that I do not have to pay for the manifold twice?

thanks!

the other problem you would have is the 185 manifold sets the turbo farther away and down. you would have to modify the oil lines and poss the turbo actuator. if you have a ? on the fitment of a 2 gen manifold/turbo to a 1 gen let me know i just did it. i am working on a write up now with pics, also installed the 205 ic at the same time :D
