Default In desperate need of help.... Diesel/Borg Warner guys come in!

So long story short I've been working all week to get the car finished since the shop has a booth this year at ECHM. One of my upgrades was a a borg warner s300sx. Me not even thinking about it, I just realized they use a different downpipe flange than garrett, precision, etc. turbos. The adapter flange I've ordered was supposed to be here Tuesday and has yet to come in so I need to find a different route. I know tomorrow is the 4th and I'm asking for a lot but if anyone can help me out here I would greatly appreciate it. I've already tried a few diesel places around the ashland airpark but most people didn't want to deal with me because it was an aftermarket application and it's the day before a holiday. I'm willing to travel and I will pay what parts are worth. All I basically need is the downpipe side marmon flange. The turbo is a s300sx with the upgraded twin scroll t4 .91 exhaust housing. Thank you in advance for any help guys! I can be reached by text/call at 804 551 8247

It would be safe to say you might find someone to do all that but you probably won't have a tune and wouldn't be worth the damage you would do to your motor trying to make it to a shitty event like ECHM.

I would never think about risking the motor to make it to any event. I can most likely get a tune as late as friday night, the only thing holding me back is this flange. I would hate to trailer the car there and not drive it because of one little thing.

you'll get no help trying to list off that kind of worthless crap to a parts guy.

give him the dimensions of what you need instead. inside diameter and type of marman flange (v, straight, tapered).

then call diesel repair shops, heavy tow truck places (buy parts off the repair truck), and even agri john deere parts counters.

That's probably going to be my best bet, I doubt anyone is open today that's why I was hoping I could find something from someone on here. That's what I get though for waiting until the last minute.

I'll be checking this thread frequently tomorrow in case anyone else can help. Other than that I'll be running around town looking for this flange
