We have a Stage 2 AVO-Turbo kit out of Australia. We are able to retain the AC, whcich BTW is the massive SD-505 R12 type compressor! it would clear the Suzuki compressor with easy. we used the SR20DET OEM downpipe and used a remote oil filter relocation kit at the time. recently we removed the relocation kit because the size fittings we causing sever pressure loss. back to using the Suzuki OEM filter!

:D Can you send a link?

Can't find the GTi kit on any of the AVO turboworld websites. Most info I can find online about the kit is this article.......... http://autospeed.com/cms/title_Mr-GTi/A ... ticle.html

Also, how hard is it to remove the oil filter with everything assembled?.............It seems to be a tight squeeze..And are those heat shield bolt hole in the manifold?? :P

I responded to your PM KIDmar. You must the OEM sized Oil filter to clear the SR20 downpipe. We tried to utilize a heat shield by welding those nuts onto the manifold, it didn't quite work out, lol.

Thanks....So since you said SR20 I'm assuming your using a Garrett GT25-60R turbocharger?

I wonder if you can rotate the turbo 180* so the turbine side faces the front of the motor if it would clear the A/C compressor with the turbine tech manifold :huh: ...I LOVE that turbo manifold from Turbine Tech

Then the turbo would hit the rad. I see no good retaining AC if you don't have a radiator to cool the engine down in the first place :mrgreen:

Is that the SRD manifold?

I read a guy used it and it didn't work with his a/c system. The page says it can be used with a/c if desired

No this is a treadstone manifold.

That's because the manifold has little to do with a/c fitment. Turbo selection, downpipe and CAI is what really matter. A small K03 turbo is about the only dryer you could fit in there.

a little.... but turbo sizing is what really matter, along with the proper downpipe and CAI setup. The manifold comes last in my opinion.

Once its a proper built manifold, I wouldn't mind paying the price on it if my funds allow me...

Well well..... you complain about us not making a manifold for A/C ?? I just quoted you for a complete A/C setup including manifold, turbo, downpipe with CAI and you say there is no funding available..??

Go figure....

I wouldnt reccomend it unless you block off the wastegate and use an internal. See how the wastegate port is on one runner? That wont allow for proper operation in bypassing the turbine.
