No idea. The one I'm using is 3SGE as far as I'm aware. Is it from a ST215?
I changed from the standard gen2 manifold because #1 and #4 don't flow as well as #2 and #3

I just checked - it is definitely 3SGE. The ST215 manifold is shorter and doesn't have double runners.

I had a crack at high flowing my wastegate ports today so I wouldn't get boost creep. It used to creep up to 18psi and then sit there. The wastegate exit holes had already been enlarged to 25mm diameter though I shaped the internals to help the flow.
Hopefully that will fix the problem.

Well, its a good day for a install.
I'm curious about the turbo oil feed location. Will that 'point' provide enough oil for the turbo? There is a bung plug below piston three which can be used(on the Gen 3 not sure about the Gen 2)for oil feed. 
So it looks like we will be door to door soon enough!
 
Good luck

Ok, will take that on board when I prep the 2.2ltr I have to pick up this week. I will tap a line into the block and pick up from there.
Can you pick up from where the oil filter is located via a sandwich plate? That too may be an option.
Are you running a surge tank?
