Sorry guys, I know the info I’m after is here some where! I have read it before but i just can’t seem to find it now.

All I wanted to know is which Mamba is the one to purchase? I’m going 18g/6cm, but which wheel config? Looking to purchase it off eBay if any one has the link?
Cheers Jon.

All the Mamba units seem to use billet wheels now which is good but don't expect one wheel to make a big difference over another. I have an 11 blade GTX style wheel and I'm not unhappy with it but if I was doing it again I think I'd go for a 6+6 wheel but as I said, it doesn't really matter as testified by JFF45 here.

Is this the one to get? I’m after oil cooled only . Says if fitting on a GQ I need GQ fitting kit. I am using a GU manifold & I want to try & pick up the oil supply from inbetween the engine mount so this kit should do? I’m just not up to date on what wheel is what. It says 6+6 but 12 blade rear?

Is the engine already turboed? That kit you've linked doesn't have an oil drain connection but if there is already one on your block/sump it won't mater.

Nah mines N/A. All I need is a fitting welded into the sump? Then this kit will suffice?

I would probably not use a bolt on kit if I was changing an N/A to turbo as you will need to obtain a bolt on dump. I'd probably go with a V-ring outlet. Give me a few minutes to have a look through ebay and I'll suggest a kit.
The exhaust I’m getting bolts up to the ht18. It includes 3” dump. I had one on my gu & it fitted perfectly. He supply’s the exact same exhaust to suit GQ with gu manifold & ht18, so it should all work.
