    I was trying to remove it without cutting it up or removing the radiator and fan. I wiggled and tried to pull it from the top, and maybe with some additional pieces removed it would have come out...

    From reading the tech doc posted it would make sense to me there are a few things in single turbo setups creating the issue that no one has discussed.

    The first being that the wastegate(s) isn't...

    2jz will own all at race wars. But only after overnighting $10k worth of parts from Japan! Errybody knows that!

    Terry,

    I agree 100%, that manifold with a ported head will start to open up flow in the upper RPM levels. Especially with a better flowing turbo.. I think with 67mm+ compressor units, a ported...

    Andy,

    I agreed with that statement regarding limited supplemental fueling not being a problem for your average 650-750whp single or big twin setups.

    But I think if we are all looking ahead to...

    Andy,

    That only works in an air/gas systems where the medium is compressible, but it doesn't work the same way with fuel since it is a non compressible fluid. If you have ever installed a fuel...

    I agree that it's too soon to tell anything yet, but some tuning on the spool would be a good thing and if it is what it is, hopefully we see some big rpm power band with supporting fuel and mods. ...

    There will always be budget options available once a platform matures, but there will always be people who will pay the premiums for higher quality products as well. What will fade is the premium...

    Tony,

    Perhaps revisiting the potential this manifold brings would give you some new ideas or insights you haven't considered. Especially coming from other platform veterans who realize what...

    Hmmmmm.. I dunno, that is a BIG chunk of aluminum. I imagine there is some weight savings for sure with the lightweight composite manifold.

    Porting ability of the aluminum is a good benefit but we...

    I think the information given was non derogatory even if a little hasty. But as a potential consumer I also feel it is good information to have even though the turbo is being warrantied. The...

    Out of curiosity, and this is directed to the manufacturer if he is on here, what was the reasoning for not installing the injectors on top with all the design freedom you had? That certainly would...

    Hopefully they had the forethought to make a larger pad for an upgraded larger throttle body. Will definitely help with distribution and pressure drop in the manifold. The nice thing about it being...
