Full Race Manifold

Postby Zeus » Sun Sep 26, 2004 6:02 am

Geoff from full race just posted up their finished design of the 3sgte tubular manifold...

very nice peice however i dont think it will work for us

he did say though if anyone in the az area wanted to stop by with a celica that they would take a look to see if it it would fit up

http://mr2oc.com/showthread.php?s=&thre ... genumber=1

here is the link to the thread

http://www.full-race.com/MR2-3SGTE-Manifold.html

link to the website

on another note Armstrong (co designer of the hydra nemsis and partner in crime with rickyb) posted his new manifold which i think should work quite well on a celica

here is the link to that thread

need a user name for the sites...


the full race mani is a neet piece. I think the big science behind it is calming the exhaust charge down through the looptyloop design and straightening it for better spool. very nice.

Man... thanx guys for the great info ... I havent been surfing the MR2 boards due to my computer being down at home .. And my only connection is at work...
Man you guys probably just save me a $1000+ bucks... I was going to have a custom turbo manifold made till I saw the Full Race one... I was going to have a custom one made and its was going to run me $2700+ ... I would rather spend $1199 for the full race one...

2700 Dollars for a manifold that is outragous and so is 1200 dollars I can build that same manifold for 500 dollars if you dont mind hand welds instead of machine welds(I can show you welds that look just as good). and still make money. They are charging for the name and I think they use machine welders. It is a nice design and would fit in the All-trac engine if you didn't have the top mount intercooler.

I am looking in to making manifolds just having some problems with funding cause I just moved and dont have access to a Tig welder anymore and I am trying to fund getting my own.

I like that MR controls one much better - any power numbers up for it yet?

I would definately test fit the manifold first... i have a hunch its going to hit the hood in a hardcore way... that youll have to cut a large hole for the turbo in your hood... that would be kinda cool but haha i dont think anyone would do it

as far as 1200 for a manifold yeah the price is up there... but they are a very well known company for their work... I beleive the amount of time they put into the manifold is what jacks up the price.. that and i bet most would consider it to be the best manifold on the market...

I dont think its with me though

Im with griffin... give me the shorty manifold :)

your probabaly right I sometimes forget how much the engine leans back. I have an extra cylinder head laying around my house and with the bends I was planning on using the top of the manifold dont come more than 1 inch above the top of the cylinder head. If it was made out of mild steel I can get a hold of even tighter bends.

You know, not alot of people do this and I'm not sure why, but for about another $30 you can have someone at a welding shop cut off the flange and put on a flange for whatever you want. It's not limited to a ct series, just what it comes with 8)

The thing it - longer runners actually cost you power - equal length or no. In NA applications equal length is king, but for turbos retaining your heat energy is much more important. Thats why I like the MRcontrols manifold - very short direct airflow - it shows a very good understanding of exhaust dynamics for turbos (which considering Ricky B is not a surprise)
