Mate, i know exactly what youre going thru.
Since finishing uni, been in 4 different jobs, 3 of them screwed me around by not taking HECS out. One employer even had the nerve to tell me it was taken out when i asked about it!How wrong they were wen i got hit with a bill for HECS by the ato when i did my tax return!

~bump UPDATE!!

well, the CT26 Twin Entry Turbo is back on the board after being fixed for $200!

Q: If I get a manifold made up now for this turbo and later, say in a years time change to a new turbo, can the manifold be somehow saved? or a whole new manifold required? Can they chop the connector off and make a new one?

well, because it's a toyota-origin turbo (and toyota have their own weird flange), the simple answer is no - you can't.

but if you have the flange changed to a garret-type flange, then the world's your oyster. so therefore yes, you can save the majority of the manifold

Totally agree with Dan get the manifold made in a garrett flange and then
have an adapter plate made that bolts to the manifold to accomodate the
CT26 turbo.
