:D not bad chen. good work. always good to see how others do things differently so that we can all improve. i am also in the middle of building my 12v single turbo and maybe in a few days i can post some pics and show you how i have managed to do it. by the way i dont understand what you mean about passing the crossover pipe between runners number 2 and 3. maybe i misunderstood. i mean it is a bit late now lol. anyway cheers and keep up the great work.

No ,not for a mighty Grale I'm afraid:(
The original crap "soon to get cracked" 304-310S SS Supersprint manifold does fit the Integrales as you probably know but this one goes way further due to the extension of cylinder4 to get equal length runners , and also due to the thicker head flange, it will be fitted to a fwd Lancia Thema Sallon car with all possible engine parts goodies and a big Holset turbo(talking about going insane in a non reasonable fwd car....:))

I've also fabricated an EVOCARS (ex UK specialists) style manifold for the single inlet turbine housings and that one was impossible to fit on a grale too.
The one on the picture carries a diveded turbo flange for the Holset split turbine ,and has perfect flow characteristics on the collector,I can make a shortened version for a Grale that may result in a better spool up but it will damage the high revs area I suppose.

Still waiting for your tip of the day regarding the my Clutch issue(emailed you twice)

The Thema is a great very comfy daily driver,the 92 model is very nice and more potent that its successors since it comes with the big valves on the head like on the Grale 16V+ ,unlike the 93-93 Thema models that came with smaller valves and 36AR on the turbine housing to get less turbo lag and low down torque.
This car looks small but has more room on the rear seats than a 164...
Only thing crappy about it(the 92) is the Marreli ijection but I'm sure you'll handle it easily.
