Hello People. I've seen it before but i can't find it anymore? I would like to know, If anyone can point me to the right direction. I am thinking I have a friend with a st165 motor and i have 2gen parts as spare. I was told it can be done with slight mods. What has 2 be done? Also Can Cams be swapped over 2? With slight mods if needed or they just don't work at all?

The st185 is a bolt on to the st165 for the exhaust manifold. It's actually a good upgrade for the st165 motor, twin entry turbo instead of a single entry.

I was told that its not interchangeable. Because they are different Bolt Pattern. Unless I heard wrong. Also what about the Cams?

Exhaust will bolt up to the head, but the bolt pattern on the Dp side of the turbo is different. You will need a gen 2 Dp to make it work.
