The last piece of the puzzle

So my engine bay has been under the knife removing and replacing anything that looks old and tatty. I now want to move onto the exhaust manifold .... now my idea is to keep the stock frame turbo as I have a damaged unit waiting to be built up in the near future. So my question to you all is this...

Which after market manifold do I buy? I have looked at jmf but thatís a little much, racetech, Japspeed so far, as above I want to keep the stock turbo but have a better flowing nicer looking manifold.

Thanks

Ell

Fp manifold.

20% bigger runners.... And doesn't crack like 3 of the standard ones I had on.

OK it doesn't look as bling as a jap speed or whatever....but works.

what's a good manifold that is SAS compatible? so far the only one i'm seeing is the tomei expreme manifold, but I've read around that it's prone to cracking too.

Ross Sport sell that manifold, it's a really good price IMO. They also offer port matching and a thermal coating process.

Both are worth considering, you can do them yourself if you don't have the cash on hand to pay for it now.

A mate has a ported FP manifold on and his car made decent power .. these manifolds are good for 500ish so to me its a no brainer .

Nope. FP manifold was made for US market where Evo's run without SAS system.

From big brands only Tomei and HKS made SAS compatibile manifolds, but both are prone to cracking on welds if turbo is not supported by additional bracket: exhaust elbow>engine block (the same as in stock).
