Looking at buying an inlet manifold. Any recommendations?
Also does anyone now if the mountune inlet manifold will fit a St-150

Not sure what the last part is trying to get at but the mountune inlet was made for the ST150. Expect to pay around £2k and they don't come up very often

Other options
Cosworth copy £150
Genuine cosworth £700
Fusion fabrication £700 new
Caterham inlet £400 but needs bonnet pins

Personal preference would be fusion fab

Caterham, sounds incredible.

Usually around the £100 mark on eBay and the like.

Is that a Ford TB?

The TB is clocked 180 degrees. Seen the Caterham inlet talked about as an option for a while but didn't realise anyone had actually done it until recently. This video shows most of the process

It has to be cocked 180... As otherwise it doesn't lineup with the bore of the manifold.

If you buy one of the newer gen plastic caterham manifolds, then they are already tapped and threaded for both TB options. As you can probably see in that video.

The original cast ones with the right hand kink - need a thread cut just to the side of one of the TB holes (which I think is the same for the cosworth style ones). It's a piece of p to do nonetheless, and I'm sure the cast ones sound better!

Other than that. You need to extend the MAP sensor wiring, and I suspect that it would snag the standard bonnet catch unless you modified the slam pannel. Mine is on aero catches and has the battery relocated so I didn't need to worry.
