The flange bolts are at different angle to port and they are different shape... It has been done however...

A GOOD log style will do the job...
What watch do you wear ??
Yea well Rollex is better...
Could say the same with clothing and joggers...

Besides is it going to be a formula one engine ???
The best comprimise is untuned seperate headers as they can be made shorter. Which means less under bonnet temps..
Most std manifolds are log style but you'll notice they don't have sharp 90* bends you often see on log style.. You have to forget alittle about flow and scavenging like extractors, as turbo manifolds work on pressure which can easy be atleast twice boost pressure.. Depending on turbine etc...

Oh k now i see, because i was reading all these forums on how to turbo this and that, i just wasnt sure about the manifold side of things. Who knows i might even drop a twin turbo on my 390 big block and make it fit in the XR lol. but thanks again for the advice.
