    I was reading this article on making a custom turbo and it says to get a turbo header from one of the kits or something but would a DC Sports header work? or Would I need to just go buy a new "turbo" header?

    Thanks

    a normal header will not hold a turbo.

    you need a turbo=specific manifold, or a welder and ahack saw to make your own out of a shorty manifold like the HF's have

    I'm pretty sure you would wanna use thicker gauge steel tubing for a turbo manifold/"header" also, that is if you were trying tomake your own.
