Has anyone tried modifying the metro turbo manifold (with a smaller turbo) so it clears the bulkhead?
I was thinking of changing the angle of the mounting flange for the turbo.
cheers

I don't think it's possible. The flange is in the wrong place no-matter what angle you can mount the turbo at. Even with a tiny turbo

I may be mistaken, but Iím sure I saw someone on here use an adaptor that was machined with an angle to put the turbo closer to the block. Whether it was enough or not I cannot remember.

was it custards car? Can remember him making his own manifold and i think it sat the turbo lower, but IIRC it still had a bulkhead box.

Now a days its much easier to by a fusion fabs kit

Nope. Any turbo mounted on the Metro manifold will require bulkhead mods.
