    Wink most ideal manifold

    what have you 4th gen-ners found to be the best exhaust manifold, not for quality but for positioning the turbo in the ideal spot?

    a custom made manifold is prob the best as you can get the turbo fab'd to which ever position you desire . down side very expensive

    The low mount manifolds u find on ebay dont fit with a big turbo cause the turbo hits the front engine bracket. The only cheap ones that work ok r the short ones that sit the turbo right infront of them. But the 2 middle runners are way shorter than the outer 2.

    Well it means that 2 cylinders work harder than the others. Personally. If ur not wanting big power or anything then it will be fine. But later id prob upgrade to a better one.
