Ive bought the header plates, and ive studied heaps and heaps of other peoples designs, however im still stuck. I want to mount the turbo behind the drivers side headlight, everythings been moved from both inner guards so there is plenty of room. Does anyone know of a company that produces manifolds off the shelf? I thought that sounded a bit far fetched but spoke to a rotary workshop that believe they've seen them before. I plan to use a internal wastegate turbocharger... has anyone got any tips, or build up pics? any help is muchly appreciated, as i have contacted many workshops in my area and they have no idea

I know budget setups in the US use the original headers but just flip them.
So instead of the manifolds point down and backwards, they point up and forwards.
Then you just make up the rest of the piping to the turbo.

Not sure if that would work in a Falcon engine bay though.

If you want proper made manifolds off the shelf though you will have to source them from the states.
