    AR Design M50 based (S50, S52, M52) top mount turbo manifold nearing completion

    AR Design is close to wrapping up their top mount turbo manifold for M50 based motors. We first reported on this manifold three months ago and AR Design has made significant progress in that time. The only other quality top mount we know of on the market is the 666 fabrication manifold which retails for $1400. It will be interesting to see what AR Design prices the manifold at and also if it will be part of a turbo kit that they will offer.

    I don't think you will ever see that, certainly not anytime soon.

    So the 62 mm turbo will be featured in the kit but is that the only turbo option you will offer?

    More than likely kit will feature different options for different power levels with turbos ranging from smaller, spool happy powerbands to turbos that will provide nothing more than tons of peak power/torque

    Gotcha, and if someone wants to go their own route they can just get the manifold itself, right?

    I would certainly expect it to be and when the pricing and final manifold is available I want to know... first.
