Default Question for Tech

Does the S80 T6 share the same exhaust manny as any of the other single turbo cars? I read somewhere that the factory turbo is a Mitsu. unit, and being fairly familiar with mitsu turbo cars (hence the name 4g63) I was just wondering how difficult a job it would be to swap over to a single unit. Maybe a B16G or 18g on low boost (12-15 psi). Any suggestions? A B16G would flow more air at 12 psi than those two small factory blowers at 15 psi. Less operating parts to fail.

There is no other car that I know of that shares the same manifold setup.
The S80 has 2 seperate manifolds. You would have to custom make one.

Thats what I was afraid of. There looks to be plenty of room to work with, my only problem is I dont have a TIG welder handy. I guess you would have to put two bungs on the single pipe for both O2 sensors.

It will most likely be a pain.
