custom turbo manifold - anyone done it? got pics?

Unread post by roostermartin17 » June 29th, 2015, 2:49 pm

I've been looking online for a after market manifold, to fit to my 1HZ. I am interested in making my own. Has anyone done this and had pictures?

i not long ago turbod my 1HZ best thing i did, it had extractors on it before and i thought about building a custom manifold but the turbo kit i got came with a manifold and for the time and material it was definitely worth not building my own, although i did build my own custom water to air intercooler setup.

if you do decide to build your own i should note take care in the welding and watch for warping of engine to pipe plate even if it is 10mm thick it can still warp a little

Hey mate, Why exactly are you making your own? They are very readily availabe, just so Im on the same page, are you trying to make a high mount turbo setup?

Why do you want to make it? cheaper to get a 1hdt exhaust manifold.
