Its not rated for pressure and is not like exhaust pipe, that has been designed for the application of being heated and expanded. Ever noticed exhaust pipe has a nice finnish on it, and mild steel pipe just has scale on it?


this comment just didnt quite add up...
straight sections of steam pipe manifolds are made of thick walled general purpose mild steel...

like i said, enjoy you're $1k+ manifolds for your 220rwkw ;)

:lol: :lol:

I was thinking of a dodgy tuned manifold I seen on ebay once. I did not refer to steam pipe or log manifolds at all.

The manifold I remember seeing on ebay was made out of straight pipe, cut and welded in angles rather than bent on a bender. the guy did not even bother to buy steam pipe 90 degree bends. That quote does not mention steam pipe at all, nor did I intend it to. Nothing wrong with proper rated thick walled steam pipe, I said some dodgy bugger could go to the steel shop and buy pipe not thick walled and state that it is. You cant tell from the pics can you?

And besides I never said I intend to buy a manifold from anyone. Im going to build my own stainless steel one.

I wasn't trying to shoot down your intelligence on the matter with these questions, I was just wondering if you had a turbo car that had a faulty manifold before and what happened. You made them sound dangerous.

Maybe you should put your PMS away and get off your high horse once in a while? Im sure if you did a search you could find out how. :roll:


:lol: Im over it mate, no problems.

I love how you always put in little jokes of the search function, but its not as funny as it used to be :wink:

I believe they use a cast iron manifold similar to the standard manifold with the inclusion of the turbo flange :wink:

BA etc XR6T use cast steel log split pulse manifolds...

XR, sorry i mis understood you
i agree, would be a silly billy to use thin walled stuff, but i guess it could happen.

materials wise, you can make a log manifold with steam pipe for $130 including turbo and head flange..
i will be making these in the coming months but selling at $250 to cover labour and other costs
you can do a 'tuned length' style one for not much more.
steel is cheap, it really depends on how much you buy.

the ones your making, what kind of power can they handle? can anyone link me to a thread that explains how the oil lines and all that work in the turbo and where they go?

i agree, but only if you can make it to the same quality, nobody likes a that'll do attitude. Not saying that, thats what you did.

This is not manifold specific, but it does cover installing a turbo in a falcon in diy style. thread is a little old but should still have relevant information there.
