Where is the exhaust manifold in the picture? Same kit can not fit both 2.0 and 2.3 engines. Scam????
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.

That kit doesn't come with an exhaust manifold. Another problem with it is the lack of a standard flange for an air filter. That might be fine at a drag strip but not a DD. For the money it's a decent price but a ton of fab work.

I have an extra A.K. Miller 2.0L turbo exhaust manifold for $235 (my original cost) plus shipping if anyone needs it.

Is this for carb. or fuel injection? Would a t-bird exhaust manifold work?

eBay turbo stuff is pretty much always a bad idea.
