what the hell are you talking about? i only need one manifold for it, leave the other the way it is. unless you mean making a second one to open it up, in which case ill probably just use an aftermarket header. Ive also got fuel managment covered, dont worry about it. there are several ways i can go with it, just havent decided yet.

The thing people mean by this is an upper intake and a lower intake manifold. Not one for each side. So, I'd think you would need 2, because if you redo your upper to match for the increased flow, you're choking it out again if you don't match up the lower. (unless you aren't changing any porting or anything) then the upper would be just fine.

Unless are we talking exhuast manifolds???? if so WHY are you still using the manifolds. Swap it out for a headers.

I don't understand your reasoning. Are you going to make a cross-over from the "stock" manifold to the other side and collect up to the turbo? Don't get all pissy either, you sound like an *******.

Exhaust manifolds, not intake. You need custom manifolds with the proper sized flange welded on, it would be a waste of money to cut up perfectly good headers.

Don't most turbo systems have a universal flange (2 1/5in, 3in, 4in, ect.)? I just thought they did. Cause if that was the case that was the reason I was saying to do a header plus to get better exhuast flow with the new intake pressure. I guess thats what I was getting at.

There are tons of different flanges. T3 flange, T4 flange, etc...

yea, just about every turbo is universal, unless you get into T3/T4 stuff, in which case you'd usually get a new manifold with the turbo, easy peasy. Also, 3LiterBeater has the point of not needing to cut up a perfectly good header. you could take the stock manifold, and the flange off of a mitsubishi manifold and weld em together to make the custom manifold. unless your starting from scratch which is a lot more complicated

im not trying to sound like an *******, not that i need to explain myself. I didnt understand the reasoning at first either. You put the turbo on one side of the engine, use only one custom exhaust manifold. you only need one. leave the other side the way it is, just like the Buick Grand Nationals. you only need one manifold to have more then enough pressure from the exhaust. im sure it would be possible to do, but unneccessary if you ask me. heres a pic. . . http://www.turbohoses.com/September2...kPhotos014.jpg

screw the custom manifolds, just put the damn turbo where the second catalytic converter is, there is no room any where else for it. For an FMU, just get an Xcalibrator and let a shop tune it on a dyno. 30 lb injectors can be found at Explorer Express, and if you have a 04-05, they have a MAF too. With the turbo below the oil pan, you need a pump to return the oil back to the engine.
