Year of 524td exhaust manifold modified to fit....
I have seen many posts about guys modifing the BMW 524td exhaust manifolds to fit the E30 for turbo charging. Can the guys who did please tell me which year of the 524td they were from? I did some research and saw that the 524td were produced from '83 to '86 so I am assuming it was from these years.
For the guys who did can you please express your views on the results on the modification?
PS I tried contacting Mike McCoy without any luck

You're right. I could'nt find any so for my turbo
project I will be implementing another idea. We will be starting the project the latter part of this week. I am using a bigger ball bearing turbo and have machined the divider so that it will kick in earlier at lower boosts.
I called the BMW dealers none of which stocks or orders the td manifold so we can't rely on that idea.
We had to come up with an idea modifying another intake that will be readily available since we would be selling these as kits.
You are right, not too many BMW turbo disels were imported into NA.
Thanks so much for your replies,
