The turbo exhaust manifold might just be the most overlooked component on today’s high performance vehicles. It’s often viewed like an appendix: it’s nice to have, you can tell when it’s not working right, but overall it just sits in the background and does its job. There are a number of different manifold designs, but the concept is essentially the same: collecting the exhaust gases. When done correctly, it makes a turbocharged car a thing of beauty!
Isn’t it time for a better turbo exhaust manifold to make it onto your vehicle? How much torque could you produce to improve your peak gain with just a few simple modifications to the manufacturing process?
You’ll Need a Custom Turbo Manifold… Right?
If you’ve decided to upgrade the turbo on your engine to the point where a standard manifold doesn’t quite do the trick, you’ve got to go get a custom manifold… or at least that’s what the theory says. In reality, there are a number of design considerations that can be included with a regular manifold to make it a better option.
Think about it – just a few improvements could help you achieve better results. Although everyone has their own idea about what improvements could be made, we all generally have some common ground in these specific areas:
- Simple expansion slots could help provide a manifold with the room it needs to expand.
- A flexible support system would help keep the manifold secure and provide extra protection against cracking.
- Machined surfaces with good fastening seals would remove the need for an unreliable gasket under hard-working conditions.
- Stainless steel fasteners would help to provide protection against unwanted loosening of the manifold.
The problem is that in order to get a really good product today, you’ve either got to: A) put in all of these customizations yourself so you can get the results you want; or B) pay someone an arm, a leg, and your savings account to get it done right.
What Is the Best Turbo Manifold?
When you ask this question, you’ll invariably end up starting a discussion about whether or not a log style manifold is better than a tubular manifold. The best turbo manifold starts with Fanatic Racing Parts’ exclusive manufacturing process that only uses the highest quality of parts. You can even say that you’re using stainless steel, but the type of alloy that you’re using can make a night and day difference in the level of performance received.
Instead of trying to constrict the manifold and make it stay put, FRP turbo manifold allows for heat expansion so that you can achieve a maximum level of performance every single time. Not only does this give you better reliability in a predictive outcome, but you’ll also have a turbo manifold that won’t crack on you as you improve your peak gain.
