Default DOC Race Manifold

Something a little different...

I hadn't heard of DOC Race before, but their manifolds look good.

I am conflicted on the positioning of that turbo. I like that it has a lot of room up front there but it also seems to be at a significant angle and I know some turbos (EFR's for example) are not suppose to be turned like that.

It is a beautiful piece though which I am pretty positive has already been linked before. They are out of NY state if my memory serves me correctly.

I didn't need to read the old threads to know that it would crack instantly.


Then I did go back and find an old thread. I was not surprised.

Vlad you said it best in the thread, all the disadvantages of a top mount AND bottom mount with none of the advantages of either. If you don't care about AC/PS, then a bottom mount will flow better.

doc race made the collector for my manifold. I knew there was no F'ing was I was going to make a decent one with a sawsal. It was definitely welded in a gas box, and was welded inside and out.

Look closely at that picture I believe that car has electro hydraulic power steering, protege maybe?
