: New Turbo Manifold Design?
04-17-2005, 06:15 PM
Are you still working on a new design for the turbo manifold? like the one you have on the White ZX3.
04-17-2005, 08:13 PM
Was curious if the new manifold will be replacing your current design on your turbo kits also.
04-17-2005, 09:24 PM
I've seen the new manifold and its sooooo sexy. Makes me oh so jealous!
04-18-2005, 12:11 AM
what you mean by replacing the current design?
well, if im thinking what you are asking, that's up to Tom.
04-18-2005, 08:27 AM
I may offer it soon , Im also playing with a diff turbo and want to use it on the next install we do here
04-18-2005, 02:49 PM
shit ill wait theN!!
i take it its gunna be better stuff, im right about to call you too :)
hey tom is this stuff gunna be much better and cost more money? like an upgrade or no?
also you remember when you first came out with your stg1 kit you used a turbo you didnt like...what happens if you try a new turbo and it is a turd or your manifold is crappy and things dont work out. will you give me then old stuff back?
im glad that you are still steping forward. i hope everything works very nice for you, also what is wrong with ur current stuff? nobody is complaining that i hear....

Nope everyone is happy with what i have now but i am allways looking to make it better
The new turbo makes more power with less boost this i have already tested but it also spools about 200 RPM more
Im not sure on the manifold cost yet and it will flow better , It is kind of like a mini header instead of close to a log style like now
If you are not going for BIG boost then the STD manifold is fine and you could try the new turbo both turbos are the same money or for 500 more you can go duel ball bearing
04-18-2005, 07:43 PM
what is the new turbo's name like a gt28r or t3 ect.
also what is the duel ball bearing? tom im not spending more than ur 2800 on the kit.
otherwise next pay check im calling you up and getting your regular kit. i dont care either which way. ive heard nothing but good things about that kit so i wont have any regretes getting it.

I know it's still on the drawing baords but if someone wanted to get the full kit with the new manifold and ur new turbo what are we looking at in price roughly?
04-19-2005, 08:51 AM
IF i do this price will not change
04-19-2005, 01:57 PM
So what does the new manifold look like? Anything like the one I have?
04-19-2005, 06:32 PM
Not realy like yours no , I will post something in a week or so
Keep in mind that the Origional manifold made 518HP , It isnt like there was anything wrong with it
04-19-2005, 06:45 PM
like a full-race.com style turbo header
04-21-2005, 12:08 AM
tom my friend tells me that if turbo a and turbo be are the same price and
turbo a (t3)
turbo b (?)
ok he says mike go with the one that makes more power. he told me that it is a better choice and 200 rpm is really nothing at all. he says if it was 1k rpm then yea thats not so great.
h also said that the new exaust manifold will be better than the log style. so you agree with him right?
if you answer yes im going to get the new stuff. tell me yes tom tell me yes. im so cracked out right now its crazy.
so help me out and respond fast to this post so i can sleep at night. tell me the new stuff is gunna be nicer for me than the older stuff.
04-21-2005, 07:31 AM
The turbo and manifold are not fulley tested , The turbo will not make the top end power of the T3 custom i use but maintains a higher HP at a lower boost
The manifold looks better but have no idea how or if it will do any better than my STD manifold
04-21-2005, 03:14 PM
so on the highway it wont be better in otherwords?
04-21-2005, 05:25 PM

Going through shit....... lets see May the 8th my car will be at Toms for 4 months. We have modified almost every part of my kit and just when we think it's ready BAM something goes wrong. Either its something with my kit (no its not one of Toms) or we decide to try something different, or try out a couple of new parts, or Tom has something else the really needs his attention. Sometimes its shop related others its personal, His shop is small and its just him and a couple of others working in it. He cant get to everything as fast as people want him too, as a matter of fact he's slow as hell[:D]
BUT, I also know it will be done right when he's finished with it. I know Tom has spent DAYS on the dyno trying to get cars to run as perfect as they can, and I hope he puts that much effort into mine.
