I now know it would have been easier to have had a bespoke manifold made which would have lifted the turbo above the cross member.
    On another note I see someone has fitted an 1800 vvc K series to a Maestro

    Yeah saw that David, As long as its good now, we all make mistakes on a learning curve

      Hi Everyone

      The summer is here and the Maestro has hit the road starting to run well, now with the turbo fitted, as I get to grips with mapping it.
      Happy Motoring
