1) Cut off studs.
2) linish manifold face flat
3) Purchase adaptor plate off Jimster
4) Wait 3 months for him to get round to posting it
5) Upon arrival, place on manifold in orientation shown in above pics
6) Mark out holes for the T2 bolt pattern on the manifold
7) Drill and tap the holes M8
8) Purchase Stainless M8 Studding, a pack of M8 stainless nuts and washers from Screwfix.com
9) Wind studding into manifold
10) cut off studding to appropriate length
11) wind some nuts down the studs and hold the plate securely to the manifold
12) Port the plate and manifold to promote decent flow into the small T2 opening. Remove plate and port 'back' the port dividers if needed.
13) Trial fit turbo.
14) If it's off the R5GT, you need to remove two studs and open the holes out to M8 clearance holes (9mm). You also need to make room for a nut on the tighter corner (this'll become obvious).
15) mount actuator, downpipe, water, plumbing, etc....

Pics seem to be gone forever. A little annoying, as all the other pics - including the BMC diesel A-series tractor have gone aswell :(

Credit must go to our very own Turbodave who i believe was the person who initially came up with this idea. *wink*

Pic 1.
The studs were cut as close to the manifold face as possible using a hacksaw, then the manifold face was ground flat, as were both sides of the plate, this is to ensure a good seal as no gaskets were used. The hole in the plate is tapered from the larger T3 manifold opening down to the smaller size of the T2 exhaust housing. I filed the hole out by hand and managed to achieve a good radius and exact match to the Turbo housing by bolting it to an old housing and then doing the final filing.
The manifold was then redrilled and tapped, and new studs installed.



Pic 2.
As you can see the stud holes and exhaust hole are offest in the plate, this is to angle the the Turbo slightly to allow for better exhaust clearance.



Pic 3.
I tig welded the plate to the manifold rather than just sandwich it between, this obviously makes one less place for it to blow from ! lol.



Pic 4.
I had to grind a bit off one edge as you can see. This was to allow clearance for the intercooler hose coming off the compressor housing. This was probably only an issue as i'm using large diameter hoses.

The actuator can be connected to the 2 way brass fitting on the compressor housing. The other side of the fitting can be blocked.
