Kinda maybe dragging this thread back kicking and screaming but ...

In this picture ... who ever took it ...

 

Is this a metro manifold? If it is how did you get the larger mounting plate with the thru bolts? Did you cut off the existing one and weld a new one on? Or did you simply weld another plate over the top?

 

The one I've just got me mitts on is the same as the OP's and I should think I will be having the exact same problem!

That's my manifold and driveway in the picture. The adaptor plate is actually tigged onto the original one.

Lovely manifold and driveway :D

 

Thought so! That's a good idea, might have to steal it.

 

Just got to try and strip the metro turbo and manifold I bought at Beaulieu t'other day ... pretty sure its been living at the bottom of a river for most of its life! O_O

Hi, can you use this manifold with a GT1752 without a bulkhead modification?
Thanks

No not if you're using the metro turbo manifold. If you don't want to fit a bulkhead box you'll need a fusion fabrications one or make your own.

A good place to drop this goody that I didn't know about until 5 minutes ago?
