A quick introduction. I am based in California and am fortunate enough to drive a JDM hj60. Of course, fortunate is relative as you've got diesels everywhere and that's why you are the most qualified to help. I am trying to come up with a junkyard turbo set-up for the ole 2h. So far I have a turbo from a Benz 300sd and plumbing ideas from axt. My question is whether or not the exhaust manifold on the 2h can be flipped (like I know is done on the 3B) to allow for the fitting of an adaptor. If this is not the right place to ask could you please direct me elsewhere.
thanks you very much.

David, cant answer your question, but I'm sure you'll find some guys on here who will be able to help. The 2h with a turbo is a great motor.

Schweitser sell a manifold for the 2h with or without their turbo...you can also make up a transition piece that bolts to your outlet and adapts the inlet of the turbine...thatway it all just bolts on with hme made stuff...

Thank you very much for the responses. The reasoning behind the flipped manifold is room. A transition piece from the stock manifold would leave no room for an exhaust elbow (it would hit the firewall). I could make a "U" shape piece to move turbo forward but the fliiped manifold would look much cleaner and fit the turbo with plenty of room.

Do you have any contact info for schweitzer? I tried searching but couldn't find anything. A manifold with turbo flange would be a dream-if not to pricey!

thanks again for helping me out.
