if your after the best it just depends on what u want to use it for (road, strip, track, dyno or burnouts) and what power figures your after. the best power or reliability? the GT35\40 is a good reliable turbo for the i6 with plenty of potential but im not the person to ask cos i would recommend a supercharger. there are plenty of threads available for information on the best setup for your application, try using the search. :)

6boost is durable construction but with the single entry turbine.

snort has the twin entry turbine but I question the durability of it. The manifold looks bling, just like the cheap Chinese ones but the thin walled Chinese ones are prone to cracking.

The manifold really should be made out of thick wall steam pipe whether stainless steel or mild steel for it to have a long crack free life.

i have a snort stg 4 manifold in my car and it has not made any problems....its vey good and i also Race with the car....so for a street car its greate... also i can get the turbo st spool at around 1800-1900rpm...so its a very effective product...oh and they are cheeper price than the 6boost one...


all u need to do is get the manifold ceramic coated and it would be greate for in reduced heat...

6boost does do twin entry as well

My 6Boost manifold is twin entry. He does a really nice job of it too. Mine was the first twin entry he had made for the e-series I6.

There's no comparison between the Snort manifold and the Chinese ones. The Snort manifold is made of 3.2mm aircraft-grade stainless steel. The 6boost manifold is made of 3.6mm steam pipe. Either one is a top quality product that you won't go wrong with. Some just prefer stainless, others prefer mild.

The Snort is more kit... The only reason I suggested them... No big deal either way...
