I would not mind using that manifold and turbo to start building the turbo side on my twincharge system. Forget the centrifugal.. I was dissapointed when I installed a 4000$ Active Rotrex on my E46 rotrex what you want is a Roots type I just so happen to have a M90 from a 3.8L thunderbird.. up for the challenge? It wont be easy..but I know your capable of doing it. I'm having some serious fun with my Supercharged M20 right now!! even at low boost its quite impressive and I still got some tuning to do on it.
