The intake mani for a turbo??
 
So im doing an n/a build at the moment on my 10 sedan but after alot of debating with fellow memebers. Something is pinching me telling me to go turbo. [???:)]. But anyways i have a godspeed manifold and im wondering for either a N/A or turbo setup. Which is the best manifold to use?? COSSIE, WEAPON, or GODSPEED??? As we all know obviously the COSSIE has the best quality but is also $800 average. All opinion and feedback would be awesome. Thanks [thumb]

i'm not sure on the godspeed one, but have heard good reviews on it. stay away from the weapon r one. cosworth it awesome and if you're prepared to spend around $5k for a good turbo setup then why not spend the money for a IM that will keep up? don't forget you will have to either notch the IM or relocate the power steering pump for it to fit on there.

a no on the weapon-r one here too. I remember the mazda 3 guys not liking it. Cossie is #1 for NA or Turbo. The ebay knockoff is rumored to be fine just might need a little cleanup with a dremel

You should ask someone who has dynoed a turbo Duratec with an aftermarket intake and a factory intake.

If you are spending the money on either the N/A build or turbo build why would you cheap out on something like the intake manifold? I'm all for saving money but I'm also for doing things right the first time.

Buy a real cossi or the knock off cossi. The knock off cossi will be more work as far getting it prepared for installation. Both will need chopped to make room for the power steering on the passenger side.
