Just trying to figure out where to find a stock mk1 focus rs turbo exhaust manifold so far I have had no luck in tracking one down hoping that posting in the mk1 sections helps

you wont come across that over on this side of the pond unless someone has imported one and didnt use it...

you'd have more luck finding one on ebay.uk

also why a rs manifold? there are plenty here that can make more power or be as efficient? log style from turbo turtle would work just fine..

Well I'm starting to think that the rs manifold won't fit now that I've seen multiple pics from different angles bc the spa manifold fits but the turbo inlet sits to close to my clutch slave cylinder to run pipe or a filter didn't mention this is going on a 99 zx2 I think I may need to run a top mount but I need to get a new turbo since I sold my to3 to get a gt2871

ive been looking for on on www.ebay.co.uk for a while.

the only other manifold i know of is the Milltek Tubular one or the one that www.pumaspeed.co.uk sell and that is very expensive.

I know of the SPA one but you have to be carefull which turbo you run due to fitment issues.

ARe there other manifolds out there?

Also the max engine hp you will see with the frs manifold is 280ish engine hp. The gt2871 is a bit overkill for that mount and would be under utilised imo. But up to u.

Well I'm going to get my turbo first and then figure out the best placement and I was unaware that the frs manifold flowed that poorly thanks for your help

If you havent gotten anything yet i would suggest Toms Turbo KIT,

it has most of the parts you will need for the conversion at a very good price.

And i would recomend a Comp Turbo. Here is the chart that cross references comp's Turbo against Garrett and Precision turbo's. Please not it is only a guide.

WHat are your HP Goals? as that should decide your Turbo. if you want a Comp turbo similar to the GT2871R then you should get CT2 4947 Tirpple Ball Bearing or CT2 5147 Tripple Ball Bearing.

IF you want a good spooling turbo with a good HP then others have seen some good results from the CT3 5558 Tripple Ball bearing turbo and it has lots of room to grow.

Read the thread below for more specifics.
