    are there any equal length manifolds for the d-series? other than that SSautochrome piece of shit, i don't think so....

    i wouldn't waste your money on it. the equal length design really won't give you a gain for your dollar on the d-seires.... 400+ whp is where it starts to make a difference. look into a good log-style... inline pro, etc...

    as for will the t3/t4 be too big? which t3/t4?

    a t3/t04b .43 .57 would be fine
    a t3/t04s .80 1.15 would be stupid

    i was looking into the ssautocrome manifold and the only bad reveiws i have heard of is it is hard to hold the weight of the turbo - so i was going to make brackets to support the weight. i will post the specs of the turbo tonight - who else makes a good manifold for a dedent price , i really dont want to get a hfmanifold - thanks

    you need to do more resaerch oin it. hell, there is a sticky about it in this thread.

    more than the weight issue, they crack.

    trust me, it looks pretty and thats about it.

    if you want a good d-series manifold,
    http://sfp.net/turbo_man_detail.asp

    450 for their street design for the d-series with deltagate/tial wastegate flange. talk to scott. he posts's here. you'll probably get a hondaswap discount too for a couple bucks.

    they are crappy because they use crappy materials and construction. When there is extreme heat/cooling shitty designs crack.

    For the price of the SSAUTOCHROME one, I'd get it, then take it to a machine shop and have all of the welds redone and have it ceramic coated...... The T3T4 hybrid is perfect for the Z6..... Thats what I am using on my CRX powered Z6....

    the material used is too thin. regardless of the welds, the metal itself cracks.

    moreover, it doesn't flow any better than a log-style. so why bullshit?

    obx turbos y0!

    fucking ricers

    I sell custom made log style manifolds, and equal length manifolds for d, b, f, h series motors. As far as the OBX Manifold goes . . . no good. Jsut remember . . .

    "You Get What You Pay For" a HF Manifold holds up better then those things :) As far as the T3/T4 goes though they work wonders on z6 motors if you get the right specs. My friend is running 7psi on his 91 hatchback and he spanked a evo the other day . . . off the line the person with the smaller turbo will take you since it spools faster, but once the t3/t4 spools you're toast because it's going to be pushing way more air through it then a little greddy turbo.

    if you need a manifold please e-mail me at:
