    Thread: turbo manifold mounting help

    1. 08-05-2012 07:20 PM #1


      this is the manifold i have SPA from blackforest industries.

      the turbo i have is the SPA 50 trim from blackforest

      I am not sure if the manifold should be installed so the turbo is on top or if it should be mounted so the turbo will be on top. just making sure the downpipe all work and i have room for piping etc...

      I think it needs to be installed so the turbo is on the bottom....

      Try temporarily tightening all the fasteners down so all the components are in their final locations, then see where you end up.

      still does not work, i think this will need to be a top mount turbo

      How much of the mount bracket would need to be removed to clear the turbo? Some people have done that on Mk2 1.8T swaps.

      Must be a mk4 manifold... that mount isn't there on those engines iirc.

      Then I suggest you contact BFI for their opinion.

      And again:

      hey guys, I'm Felipe, and i'm work at SPA Turbo in Brazil.
      the TMW08 is a bottom-mount manifold, but to use on the MkIII & below, is needed to use the SPA VW engine mount, it replaces the OE mount, clearing room for turbochargers up to .70 compressor housing.
      the MkIV doesn't need that mount.
      the PN for that mount is TMSPT06, hope that helped.

      Interesting.
      I have always thought about making a support arm back there for more clearance since the oem is hollow and take up space
      Rockin' a mk3 since '94.
