I was reading another thread and got a bit curious regarding the american V6 fitted ecotec engines. so i thought i would have a look on the US ebay. these fit a camaro V6 95-99 which im pretty sure is the same as an ecotec. so would this extractor set be usable if turned around to use as low mount turbo headers with a custom Ypipe??

and another question, (which i will have a physical look at when i get home) can you turn the ecotec intake base around like you can on a buick v6? just curious....
is it worth doing as a reverse plenum equivalent? or is there too much to worry about moving around in order to make it work?
so you can un-bolt the top half of an ecotec plenum then turn it around so its a reversed plenum?
ummm, no i dont think you can just unbolt n turn it around.. im looking at maybe importing one of the american buick intakes n using it for my VS with a forward facing TB, but if i can get away with just turning the whole manifold around fairly easily then i might just do that instead. im pretty sure im going to have issues with the alternator getting in the way of the plenum hence the little cutout on the front corner. but we will see
Mace sells the rev plenum all it's good stuff I'm keen to find out how these manifolds go as I'm looking for a set ATM but if these can be modified dang I'll give it a go
yeah, not really looking to spend a lot of money on this one, so ill try flipping the whole thing first n see how i go.
but getting away from the point, my original question was regarding the exhaust manifolds. the ones in the first post look like they would be good as a basis for a forward facing low mount turbo setup.
Plenum wont flip need to be cut and rewelded
ima post about these manifolds on l67torque see what the boys reckon there
let us know what they say.
They reckon be to much fkn around better off making em ima give it a go
what do you mean give it a go? u gonna get a set n try it?
im just trying to visualise the extractors mounted forwards n down, with a custom Ypipe n turbo in the middle at the front. if its too much stuffin round thats fine, but if you do, let us know how you go.
make a account at l67Torque dude there the best help youll find Great blokes all with the same hobby
I mean Weld them from nothing get butweld fittings and just weld em up
im not a pro welder but if i can tack it up i got alot of mates that are
im currently in the middle of making my own for my VR. so already know whats involved in making your own turbo manifolds... i was just thinking out loud on this one with the US extractors.
