yep its really hit and miss, some work some dont... there's so many factors that come into play, but a good rule of thumb is to just have good smooth flow in a turbo system... from air filter to exhaust tip, any tight bend will slow down air speed and flow, but you can never get it all perfect

basical, as i see it. If you have a turbo and you want more power....add boost!

Its not like a N/A car where chasing every poofteenth of a hp counts. Coz if you have over 200rwkw, thats plenty (on the street)

Not true dude. Heres some pics of my snort kit for the ED. I didnt run a tape measure over each pipe but i would say thats as close to tuned length as youd get.


I see. That's a rather nice manifold there. Do you have any probs with the turbo getting close to the shock tower or any other clearance problems?

I did with the original manifold but Geoff from Snort upgraded it to the new style for nothing. :D

Does Stage 3 still use the tubular/tuned length manifold? Looking at the Garret catalogue on the GCG site, I can't really figure out the model designations properly? A GT30R can have either a T04S Comp housing or a GT40 one? Is that how it works?
Catalogue Part I
Catalogue Part II

Theres a bloke on ebay (in the states) called Blue Oval Industries. He sells 42 lb Ford motorsport injectors. He quoted me $350 aus including shipping and insurance. In the end a mate at work had recently bought a set off the same bloke but didnt need them as he sold the VN they were originally purchased for, he sold them to me real cheap. :wink:
