Even if it's performance is no worse than a standard log, I'm not sure why you'd consider this over the Trackspeed cast manifold.

When did TSE start making mitsubishi manifolds?

The manifold will hit the 300whp goal you mentioned. Didn't see an actual question to answer otherwise.

IMO you shouldn't build your setup around a turbo that's "laying around" . You gotta be mindful about the big picture ... like what if you want more ?? and you will , we all do loll

You should buy a gt2860rs or efr with ARtech , FM , trackspeed or whatever log manifold you want that will utlimatly allow you to have a setup that can be improve instead of being stuck with weird mitsubishi flanges .

my two cents fwiw

So if you are fabricating yourself, why not put the flange on cylinder #2 like most normal manifolds?

I just dont see how this log can possibly flow well...?

I respect the guys using an efr but I am not about to jump on that bandwagon, there are other good turbos out there that wont run me $2k canadian. The efr and manifold route you are suggesting is over $3k, that is absolutely out of the question for me.
It all make sense , if your turbo meet your goal and your budget that's all it matters. Those suggestions are proven to work and to offer "headroom" for upgrade but aren't the only way to do it.

Still I feel like a T2 flange is a more versatil option , but I guess you could still use a 20g if you ever need more .


I'm a fellow canadian too !!
I live near Montréal , where are you located ?

Logs don't flow well. They all have issues because they are logs.

For a log that has the turbo centered on number 2, the number 2 cylinder charge still goes towards number 1 and number 3 when it comes out whether it's what we want or not. Similarly number three goes towards number two and number four. Makes no difference where the turbo is. Since logs do a very poor job of directing the charge the best you can hope for out of a log is that the volume is relatively small yielding a quicker spool. This one accomplishes that just fine.
