Default Turbo help

I am getting ready to throw my turbo on but I was told I need a divider for the manifold. Have you guys ever heard of that? I was under the impression that is what the waste gate is for.

If your turbo is a twin scroll unit, you will need a divided manifold.

Twin scrolls have will have two oblong holes at the turbine inlet flange (bolts up to exhaust mani) instead of one larger squarish one.

Hey man, don't ask the same question in 2 forums... that's bullshit that only clutters up the fourm and makes you look like a lame-*** NOOB.

And since your terminology might be screwed up, most modern downpipes have a small dividing flange where it bolts to the turbine housing that separates the exhaust gas between the turbine flow and the wastegate flow.
