That involve's him doing actual work, instead of talk though. Which we know just doesnt happen. lol

I was at auto parts store today, so i as for 89 240sx sohc manifold gasket to compare to f2. the 2 center hole lined up, also the 2 bottom hole lined up. intrigue by this, i snapped pic.

f2 gasket overlay 240sx ka24e gasket




remember i widen the holes on the f2 gasket to fit over m10x1.25 stud instead of m8, thats why the hole is larger compare to the nissan gasket

Yup, we figured that out when we fit up a turbo ka24 manifold on a F2t head.

I've known about this for awhile, except I would flip it and not have it on top.

Is that a CXRacing manifold? I was looking at them but shipping for me is almost the same price as the damn manifold...

Looks good though.

Damn. Your doing the exact same thing we did even using the same manifold. At least we did it first. lol.

What are you going to do about the wastegate placement in a 1st gen? In the f2t mx3, the radiator is alot more forward, so its not an issue. But figured that wouldnt work in a 1st gen with that placement.

If your having trouble making the wg fit, or you want more room for a turbo, you could always make more room
