Altezza Turbo Manifold

Anyone knows where I can get a Turbo Manifold for a SXE10 Altezza?

Or is it possible to buy a Celica 3SGTE Manifold and weld my existing manifold flange to it so it will bolt up?

hi there noojra, im here in barbados so pretty close. we have an altezza that came over with a trust turbo kit, its supposed the be pretty quick. to be honest i would spend to money and get a kit by a reputable brand like trust or blitz before i let somebody butcher my header but i know how you trinis are "we mek it work ent". power enterprises and apexi also make kits.

if thats what you decide to do i deal with a place in japan (this may be useful to you too bluealtezza) called perfectrun. great prices and great service.

*Trust (GReddy) Turbo Kit for Altezza with 3S-GE: 209800Yen
this is a quote they gave me when i was thinking/dreaming about going turbo.

can contact them at - [email protected]

let us know how it goes and if you do let somebody in the "bamboo" cut the manifold pleaseee take some pics and post!

Blue99Altezza Can you give me a price for the used and the new manifolds.

"28" I was going to go custom firstly because Its cheaper and secondly because I wanted to choose the individual components for the setup. That the same reason I always build my own computers instead of just buying a DELL (plus its cheaper )

I was actually going for a mild setup with stock internals with a thicker Head Gasket and then later getting a TODA low compression stroker kit and running more boost. I also wanted to use a APEXi FC Commander unit since I believe this would be one for the most reliable Fuel management choices and I can fine tune it for my setup

I've got a buddy looking for a new aftermarket metal gasket (HKS, Apexi etc). Probably something in the range of 1.6mm. Can you help?

Who said anything about cheap.

Cheaper doesn't always mean "cheap" man. I actually do own a Dell 5150 and It runs slower than my "939 Athlon 64 system" despite costing twice the price.

I am going to look for the manifold today, I found a complete turbo kit but I haven't found any solo manifolds yet. By the way, it will most likely be a cast manifold. For the metal head gasket, HKS on has this: I will look at the speed shop today but I am pretty sure they won't have one. I will look into Blitz and Apexi too........... oh yeah, the first column is the mm and the last is the price in JPY

Thanks man, I'll cross my fingers

RS200AT I found a site a while back that has HKS and Other parts for sale, the only thing is that the site is pretty crappy to navigate.

You will see what I mean

I looked at a few shops today and no manifolds.... I will look at another shop tomorrow, but apparently they are not as easy to come by as I thought. All the one I have found for sale are parts of complete turbo kits. I will let you know what I find tomorrow....
