I just want to see some examples of people who have went with your manifolds. I know that it is optimized for each application of course.


All the dyno sheets I have available are of fairly heavy modified 3S-GTE engine.

My business philosophy is fairly simple: If I build a customer a manifold and he\she is not happy with the result, that customer can return the manifold for a full refund. The only requirements are that the customer returns the manifold in the same condition he/she received it in, include a dyno sheet and or some proof that he/she at least tried to tune the engine appropriately.

I am thinking of doing a GB but to make it worth for the customer (+/- $700 - $750.00) and me I will have to make about 15 units.


Wow.. that's a great price.

Thanks :D - Its been a long road but shes finally starting to look and perform like I want her to. I do regret the modified CT26 though - Wish I had a nice GT30R or GT35R - something with a nice fast spool time and slightly more oomph to it.

Yeah - that was kind of the plan - start with building the engine - get that worked out - get the EMS cams pump and injectors on - get that worked out - Brakes and suspension, then crank the boost and get the FMIC on - get that worked out and tuned. (which is the step I'm on now)

after that its rollcage, finish gutting and weight reduction, 5 point harness, Racing wheel, Seats (*IF* I can afford them) then after that its a tossup between big brake kit and big turbo. Turbo is more expensive, and will require new injectors, but probably is worth it.

Please let me know how that GT30 works out when you get it on - if it spools as fast as I think it will I have a feeling I may be getting one.
