Turbo Manifold Identification

Greetings and Happy New Year All,

I am looking for more information on this manifold. I was doing some planning for my upcoming build and saw this in my photo archives. I really like the design and inverted layout. If anyone out there has any information (builder/designer, sourcing, performance), I'd be greatly appreciative.

Cheers,

Marc

don't know but i like the hanging down arrangement - like

the real M10 turbo design

something to shoot for if you ever get something made:

from "Robert in Sweden" thread 2011

Thanks. I've seen the video, but dyno runs don't impress me much. I'm shooting for around 225rwhp with boost starting at around 2250rpm @12# or so.

There was a video (I could not put my hands on it) that showed a few passes that were quite simply - BALLISTIC! I think the car was from the Netherlands. I'll post it if I find it.

Otis does a really nice turbo manifold at a nice price. He built me one and we have a plan for a twin scroll manifold. If you want his contact info, let me know.

Hanging down shakes and whips less. Look at a long pole vs a short one. I threw a 316SS "down" turbo manifold in the scrap bin not long ago. Nobody wanted it. Guess the "up" style is in and has the sexy look. Up works if you can keep it together.

There's more to top/bottom mount than fads, actually. With a low-mount turbo you have less room for equal-length runners and need to run an oil scavenging pump, but the downpipe is substantially easier to fabricate and install. It's also an arguably more stealthy setup.

With a top-mount, you can let gravity drain the oil and have plenty of room for runners, but the downpipe needs to be pretty long and inconvenient. IC and intake routing is easier, though.

Equal-runner manifolds are currently more available (otis, ebay) than log-type bottom-mount (TCD and old BAE systems), and have better performance characteristics, which is why they're more frequently seen in modern builds.

I have a BAE/Century low-mount exhaust manifold with the matching intake and charge pipes for sale, just need to take pics and make the thread...

That manifold (which looks, to me, like a one- off out of weld ells) sets the

turbo high enough that you'd probably not need an oil scavenging pump.

The through- bolt arrangement is different, tho.

Yeah, this is true. 2002s have a pitman arm mount there, though, so this is either very close to it or made for an e21. The through-bolt design gives me pause as well.
