Seems to be a chinese made Pro-Turbo 240 manifold knock-off by looking the flange. Very cheap at ebay but _a lot of_ quality related problems (search turbobricks for ssautochrome, for example http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthrea ... autochrome) Original Proturbo design was top mount but the chinese have welded the flange upside down so it won't fit in either way without flipping the flange, because the spark plugs get in the way if you try to fit it as topmount and it will hit the fender if you'll fit other way. Also a lot of collector issues (cracking) because of the thin material used.

Does the intercooler fit well? It looks a bit wide. what are the port sizes?

I will be needing one, brackets and pipes would be useful.
