Hi Alphadrex,Hey Ally,
Check out this write up. I just did the same on my GTiR, but I went with the GTX version. There are a couple things not mentioned in this that I came across, I will make a list later of anything I can think of.
If you could let me know, also did you have to have a spacer made up?

Like 5 years late but I will put my 2cents in for any one in the future....machining needs to be done I have All the exact measurements and all u need to do is take your manifold and compressor housing to any decent machine shop and they will do it ...not hard and a cheap way of having if fit properlyHi Guys,
Will a GT2871r bolt straight on to standard manifold or will improvement/New manifold be needed?
And what else will be needed if so?
Luckily I read this I'm getting a manifold made upOdd, mine fits straight on. The only thing was the snail on the turbo fouled the gear box housing so i had a 10mm spacer made up to fit behind the manifold.

After googling images some of them look alot smaller than mine what size inlet on the compressor was yours I hade to mill the manifold to kick it up and out and turn the compressor housing down from 4inches to 3 and it still clears the gear box by about 3mm
My turbo is GT25/40 aka gt2871r .....so the internet sez....same as you??
