Full Race Manifold

Q&A regarding engines, turbos, and intercoolers and power upgrades

If I ever had any free time I would love to test fit that manifold to my car. Any idea what part of Arizona he's in? I'm guessing Phoenix, but any particular shop?

ey guys, about that manifold, yes it does give a very good flow but the wastegate port is actually wrongly installed. it create a lot of backpressure when the wastegate is open. You must weld it a way that the air will flow better. (God bless the book maximum boost by Corky Bell)

To clear things up... its not an mrcontrol manifold... just armstrong had somsone on the mr2 board make him one... i dont know if the guy is going to produce them or not...

as far as the aussie manifold goes... its a nice manifold but the whole reason i would be going an aftermarkt mani would be to get rid of my stock mani and adapter set up... and becuase that manifold has no provisions for an external waste gate, it doesnt do me any good... too bad its really pretty :P

i could use the adapter... but then that would put even more extra weight on the mani and i bet it woudl crack inside 10 min! It would be nice if aussie exhaust would make a short runner mani with a provision for an ewg...

thats another problem with the mani that matt (armstrong) had made for him... his ewg is running off a modified housing... somethign i guess i could do but eh i dunno...

I wish someone made a knock off greddy manifold.. those things are pimp!

Let me try to relink it:

is that really the mrcontrols manifold? looks kinda stock to me except it's not a twin entry. i was never a fan of the curvy loopy manifolds, seemed like a waste of effeciency to me. any engineers out there care to explain what an optimal manifold should look like for turbos? also does this manifold clock the turbo down?

As an electronics engineer, I'm not really qualified to lecture on fluid dynamics. However, I do read from a source who is and his recommendation on turbo manifolds is to keep the runners _short_ and use a material that will not transfer heat out quickly. With those guidelines, the cast manifold isn't looking too bad. With HPC thermal barrier coatings it would look even better.

yep if someone made a tubular cast manifold with an ewg port i would be all over it... unfortunately the ones what were made dont work with our cars or they are impoissble to find... shame cause i personally think that unless your looking for stupid hp they would be a great set up espescially for a daily driven or even just a street driven car

The stock manifold rocks.

Good idea on the thermal coating scott, I think I'll put that down on the to do list.

Yes it does - which is why the WRC 3S's always used short runner cast manifolds.

im not the exhaust guru either but why would cars like this lun a long manifold when it is not the best?

this is andre simon's 9sec drag car. it has not be run yet as is, that time was done with a full chassis so this should be an 8 sec car.
