So for those of us with the weld Ls log manifold will we be able to buy the new cast mani by itself or will it cost $1500 and come with a turbo and exhaust?

Current customers will be able to purchase the new manifold on its own. I will be reaching out once the appropriate time comes with more info for current customers.

That manifold looks so good! I might have to join in on the upgrade. Sucks there won't be a spot for an ewg. But i've been debating on going back to iwg for awhile. Looking forward to that message Lars!

It'd be awesome to have a kraken priced kit from a US vendor!

My original, non sweet *** mandrel bent one piece mid pipe and welded manifold, kit rips 30 psi already. I have put about 25k miles and over 100 1/4 miles on my kit. This kit has been the best bargain on the planet for years now.
Thanks again Lars!

Signed,
Totally Satisfied Customer

Is this roughly how those of you with the NA setup have your turbo clocked?

No. If you got rid of ac and ps you can clock so outlet is down. Othereise close it more clockwise

Yeah that's just about how mine is clocked. Might be facing a little more towards the engine hoist mount (or whatever the **** that is, I took it off to fit the intercooler piping. My drain and feed is a little more vertical that that as well, could just be the angle of the picture

As soon as the new version becomes available, put me down too. I would love to have a little extra room for a bigger downtupipe. Clocking the turbo isn't an issue as there is no A/C or PS and I'm looking to go to a 3071/3076 during next winter.

Crap. I need some opinions.
​​​​​​I've got a vvt head on a NA8 block. Where should I put the oil feed line? I also want to run an oil pressure sensor and oil temperature sensor.

Where's the best place to run the feed line to? There's the hole on the driver side, but then the feed line I got from Lars is way too long.

The oil feed lars kit goes to the stock oil pressure location on the block with the supplied tee. As for oil pressure and temp gauges you could use an oil filter sandwich plate.

If you have the MK oil line kit and OEM VVT oil line & oil pressure sensor, all those are P&P on the passenger side where the oil pressure sensor was on your NA8 block. I don't have a clever solution for the oil temp sensor, but I'm just getting a 1/8" NPT bung welded in for it.
