Wastegate Manifold options

Recommended Posts

Hi folks - In need of a replacement wastegate manifold as mine's beyond saving. Are these lumps of cast iron available off the shelf, or has some clever bugger come up with a replacement?

My options at the moment are trying to find new old stock, or some friendly TLF'er who has a good used one lying around in the shed somewhere.

Getting the old one welded up (not easy or cheap as it's cast iron) and re-machining & tapping to make good again.

Getting some flanges made, a clever bit of fabricating and adapting an aftermarket dump valve (HKS or similar).

Going all out with custom headers, and bespoke exhaust and turbo system.

The above options range from not cheap to eye-watering. Someone out there must have been in the same predicament, so current thoughts and work-around's welcome :)

Thanks for suggesting SWLC - New wastegate manifold courtesy of Kathy in my spanner man's grubby mitts this morning :) 

Just under a week from enquiring on here to delivered - not bad eh?

Seems they're readily available. SWLC, SJ have new, and JAE have good used ones for anyone else looking.
