    you should build another one at the same time. I guarantee you, it will sell in a matter of seconds.

    Problem with that is, the manifold is 1 small piece of building a turbo kit, customer buys a manifold and then what? There is still much work to be done, if you have the skills to build your own kit, you can most likely build your own manifold with just flanges that are available, for the others there are kits as they do not have the tools nor skills to build their own. I think just selling the manifolds falls somewhere in the middle.

    exactly. somewhere in the middle. Tons of people do it on other platforms. buy the manifold. source the turbo, wastegate, tune yourself. you'll only need turbo intake pipe which is super easy on a single turbo, hot side to FMIC piping slightly more difficult, then a downpipe that most exhaust shops can fab. Am i missing something? You can piece all that together far cheaper than FFTEC is selling their kit for. I'm not counting yours becuase fabbing your TT setup up is prob more in the expert realm than your average DIY realm and we're talking single manifolds anyways.

    I see both sides to be honest. I am sure people will start selling manifolds soon. I am hearing rumors of Fullrace coming out with something. This platform is large I would not be surprised if they drop an EFR kit for the car at some point.

    I don't see a problem with selling manifolds. I would actually prefer buying one vs a kit because I can choose my hardware, it will be cheaper, and easier than building a custom mani (which I do not have the skills to produce).

    Yeah selling the manifolds would work out great. I built my own turbo kit on my last car. I would love to do it on this one. Cheaper and just a better all around experience to just do it yourself.

    DocRace should build and sell a manifold for the N54. Their work is stunning to look at in person and race proven.

    That's a bit of a glaring oversight isn't it? I thought they redesigned it?

    No, that is called a turbo kit rather than an exhaust manifold for ST. The manifoldS for the kit are very different from the ST manifold. The only common factor is the fabricator. The twin manis look similar to stock manis. Short simple runners. The link to the ST mani is in my previous post.

    I stand corrected. Still retarded to put a twin scroll flange on imo without being able to actually do it correctly with cylinder firing order.
