Im looking at a few options for my turbo build and just wanted people's opinions on which manifold to go for. i was thinking either an hf, bmc log or hmt sinktrap style using my stock header. (im on a tight budget btw:TD: hence the choices )

I would think that the HF/STD manifold would be a good choice as it is so cheap and easy to do. One thing I really like about it is that at a glance the engine bay still looks rather stock. Obviously there will be no worries of the manifold cracking. The only real concern of that manifold would be the HP limitation, I'm not really sure what that would be but I'll bet it exceeds the limits of the stock bottom end...

^^^ exactly; the HF manifold is NOT gonna be your weakest link with a stock block D

right now, on a budget build, the hf mani will be the cheapest and it won't really limit you if you haven't built the motor

^ this one -> http://www.d-series.org/forums/showthread.php?t=59064

You realize that because its a t28 inlet flange; your manifold options are narrowed, right? A cast manifold is probalby gonna be your best bet... search eBay for 't28 manifold'

That thread has very little relavence to this thread dont you think?? My wanted thread was so i could compare the cost of getting a manifold from the states compared to what i could get hold of over here in the uk. Im currently buildinga z6 with vitaras and tt rods etc so the block wont be stock. if people had the choice of the three i mentioned what would they go for and why?

actually; i think both of your threads could of been easily been combined... and you didn't really provide enough info for anyone to help you make a decision...

but anyways: if you're on a budget i'd go with a cast manifold; they are cheap, work well, won't crack, and i think you can pretty easily fine one with a t28 flange (t28 flanged mani is not nearly as common as a t3 mani...) Sink-trap doesn't make much sense with a realatively small snail; top-mount isn't going to be idea for a DD...

Depends how much you port it. ;)






That's my way of saying I have no clue.

i have a fully built motor and i'm still on an HF mani :lol: i'm sure i'm well over 200 hp too (probably around 230-240). I can't wait until my topmount is finished :razz:
