Why would you want to use an inlet manifold for the wrong engine in a car that comes with a great inlet manifold from the factory?

 

Hopefully the rest of your spending isn't as random/wrong as this :)

I'm sure I've seen cars running OFAB with a cast Zetec manifold.

ive been told that you can use a rs turbo inlet but you need the conversion plate to it it so ive bought the conversion plate just need the efi inlet can find 1 any were

most zetec turbos ive seen have the rs turbo efi inlet on them.

I'm with Stu on this one. Far better to use an inlet that was designed for the engine instead of faffing about with adaptor plates.

yeah but an inlet that is dont designd for a turbo will not give you the boost you want

an inlet designed for turbo application will give improved reliability over a n/a inlet .

But an inlet designed for a smaller capacity engine, with a totally different design won't work very well either, turbo or no turbo.

 

The 130PS inlet from the XR3i/RS1800 has been used on numerous 300+bhp engines, which I think is proof enough of it's capabilities!

I know you are.

 

I am also going to be building a 2.0 Zetec turbo in the new year, probably based on the black top from a Focus, and I'll be using the 130PS inlet from an RS1800 on that, and I have no doubt at all that it will see me over 300bhp without any issues at all, and it bolts straight up to the engine.

 

Far less hassle!

The black top engine has a restrictive plastic inlet manifold on it. If he has spent 2k on his engine then im sure he will be running big power and would it cope with the boost? i would say the fiesta turbo inlet is a much better option and would imagine its alot stronger and better flowing and while running fiesta turbo management would it not be easier to use coz would you not have to adapt the loom to fit the black top fuel rail or the fuel rail to fit the blacktop inlet??? im no expert but thats what i think.
