View Full Version : Think I may need a new exhaust manifold. Ugh. Any ideas for an intake here?

does it run with the setup you have ? because you could always just get a mushroom style hks filter and it should fit ?[wrench] [wrench]

what's up with the ATP t3 flange mani's? They seem to put turbo's a bit to far forward and out. I guess it's not just mine. time for a full race mani. full race = $$$ = me [=(]

the atp mani is designed for a transverse car and even then it doesnt fit really well

of course..nothing atp makes fits *good*

heres mine..

t25--- Blah

No wonder it didn't put down good numbers. IIRC it was something like 280 AWHP.

(I am sure it can make more)

im almost certain its a t25 flange

that guy wants a 35r now too

and last i remember from his posts was going to rebuild his rebuilt motor...has around 4-5k on it i believe...said something "didnt seal right" and it was smoking i think..

I had to cut mine too....acually, I had to massage the headlight area quite a bit to make my TIP fit. it took an entire evening of trial and error. BTW, I'd hate to see what the fit would be like if I had a ext. wg. just mo plumbing, mo mess, mo problems.
