Typically, the turbo kit comes with the appropriate exhaust manifold for the motor it's made for and the turbo the kit comes with.


Now if you have something like the Aerocharger kit, Any long-tube header would work.

Yea i know that the turbo kit usually comes with it but for some reason the guy im buying from doesn't want to sell me the header that comes with beacause he said it would be too expensive for me and i could find a much better header for cheaper. So im just wondering what company would make a good one.

WTF? Ussually the header and turbo come as an assembly as matching the two is critical. I really wouldn't want to have to buy a turbo and then machine my own header. Is this transaction taking place on FF?

Moved to FI chat.
