hey guys, i've seen plenty of extractor manifolds for turbo falcons but i'm trying to start cheap and i cant find anyone who sells just stock style log manifolds for a turbo 6 falcon. anyone know where any are (preferably in SA)

also, how much better are the extractor manifolds over a log one? just meh, better flow but only up high or exactly ONE BILLION times better everywhere?

tuned length are really only better if your looking for massive power, but log styles will generally perform quite well. I sent snort a email a few months back and he said they can make them to oder for about $650.

But why pay $650 for a log manifold when if you join the group buy which i think might still be running u can get snorts tuned one for $650

looks like i'll have to make one, like what you've done chef. naturally it'll be flow tested, ported and polished, every bend and angle accurately calculated to the nanometer :roll:
