  • Txa manifold kit

    An yes i have read all 10 pages of the only other thread i could find but im was really hoping for more of an update from those who have got one,or if anyone else has bought one as my fingers keep twitching to buy it on fleabay
    My only real concern is the downpipe as for a scorpian it looks like it would need to be drastically modified

    But at the same time i can get a nortech mani for £550 i think on there site, although its just the manifold would it cost much more to get all the misc parts that come with the txa kit?
    Dilemma or what

    Tom the Tx kit is a nortec one

    But the one on his website might be a few mm thicker?

    Yes I'm the same when I get my nortec mani my cobra is going to need cutting then new flange so that a down pipe can be bolted on

              you wont get a nortech mani at that price any more, as the tax as gone up, an that was the price before adding tax.

              depends what spec turbo your going after? 800-1100, id say about 150 for all the little fittings, oil lines etc. then theres fitting and mapping.

              are you sure its a nortech one tx sell? have you got a picture of a tx manifold? as i will be able to tell if its a nortech or not.

                    is'nt the nortech 4mm thick,and the tx mani is only 2mm??don't think nortech would put there name to a mani that is half as thick as there own,do you....

                        whats with the downpipe reducing to a small flange? must be to fit a standard exhaust by the looks of it.

                        I would go with the nortech or custom made spec manifold if i was buying again.

                            I was told by atueer who's working with Tx that nortec is producing these for Tx

                            But they are not as good as his custom ones that's why they are cheaper and are produced in bulk.

                            I'm gonna go for the dbilas gt28 kit now as it's a everyday car and don't want any cracking or hassle replacing/repairing

                              i know nortech made atueers one for his zaffi but he would have paid quite abit for it as it was made of larger pipework
