Short tube header made for turbo??
As the title states, I am trying to find out if it would be possible to make a short runner exhaust manifold work for a turbo setup? I can weld a V band adapter to it or whichever flange works better. If that's not possible, has anyone made their own manifold? I am capable of making one just not sure of the measurements. Any help will be appreciated.

Why post in the svt section? This is a forced induction topic lol. But u can use a stock zetec manifold like the zetec fswerks kit does. Or the spa cast iron manifold these would be the cheapest. Or the edelbrock zetec manifolds

I posted it because in this section because I wasn't sure of where it should be since I am thinking of doing it with an SVT motor. Sorry if this is the wrong section, but I do appreciate the help. Thanks

If you plan on doing an engine swap, dont bother with the SVT engine. Go snag a 2.3l duratec block and get the fswerks turbo kit. That will be a much better option for you.

I wish that was an option. My funds aren't unlimited and I'm getting the svt motor cheap. If I go 2.3 I'm gonna basically need a whole car for the wiringand I don't have a place to store it.

How cheap are you getting the SVT engine? I am picking a replacement up soon myself.

I'm picking it up for a few hundred bucks but it needs a minor rebuild. A buddy of mines is hooking me IP with it.
