That's convenient because that tiny *** turbo is not going to make 1500hp, nor is any 1500hp 4-cylinder going to get a turbo moving in general without a squeeze.

Ok well, I really have nothing left to say here. I try to throw out an idea, I back it up with an application and get threats of being banned and lying. Thanks

You are a liar. Don't say "I" when you mean "my cousins, friends, sisters, pro drag 1400hp car with secret turbo". That is not backing it up with an application. That is just some random pic you probably got off google. Build this manifold, test on miata; that is application.

Curly clearly gave you a reason why we don't bother with such manifold designs. We don't have the space and the overall gain of power will be miniscule.

Go away.

You...might want to read up on this thread....don't forget to follow the links.

As far as your idea goes...

You're better of snaking a long runner 4-1 manifold as you'll get more pressure at the turbine inlet.

No, I never said I had a srt-4. I said "actually, I have(seen) on a" not "I have(to own)"

I still don't see how that little T3 is going to make 1500hp.

Must be a reason why he doesn't run that manifold on his track car. :P
