Sweet!

Is this for a BP/B6? Or some other car?

I need to swing by sometime and grab a few of your flanges, you are literally 15min from my place.

great work man, Aaron made my 3 inch downpipe and added a wastegate to my etd manifold and did a great job!!!!!(he also made me a oil drain flange for my msm oil pan, intercooler pipe and a custom water pump inlet )

there is actually quite a bit of clearance for the dp. this was the initial mockup:



marlon, you get dibs if you are interested.

Ooohh, could be a squeeze. Looks like it'd hug the #4 runner pretty close.

Maybe the same design in a bottom-mount config would be more advantageous? I'm sure there's plenty of space for the DP but I'd imagine in a bottom-mount config it would be nearly a straight shot!

It looks like the downpipe should have no problem, and being externally wastegated makes it easier yet.

Its so nice to see some original thinking.

All of the tubular manifolds I see seem to be a knock off of the Begi one.

That looks so sweet, If only I had a working turbo and some money and didn't have A/C didn't live in the UK......Oh who am I kidding, I will never have this underbonnet bling!

I'm sure. but it seems odd. it could have easily been created with the flange perpendicular to the motor....there is no advantages to intake or ic piping this way, imho. Plus the DP will have to have a small bend out, then another down to make it's way down into the tranny tunnel....whereas the typical manifold would only need the one bend....

I think the reason of the twist is to clear the P/S. Granted I would rather have A/C over P/S.
