Tomei's new Expreme stock turbo replacement manifold is where its going to be at watch. Its made by their "lost wax" process and it is just like a stock manifold in design but with bigger runner's.

I wanting to know this too. It would be good to know for the FP RED owners. I have been on the hunt for a good manifold.

They have done write ups for intake manifolds. Why can't they do one up on the exhust Manifolds?

I hope this post keeps on growing and we find the information what we need. If any of the big dogs chime in and help out would be great

I agree. There is no reason to go aftermarket on the stock turbo. The gains are minimal. You would be better with just a stock ported manifold.

I already have a ported and coated stock manifold myself...I am going to stay with a stock appearing turbo for a while like a lot of people are doing now...I am putting like list together to hopefully have people post prices, pics, and proven results from the different manifolds...I have a pretty good list together so far...equal length tubular stock replacement manifolds are not just for show...Mike @ AWD just tested a Shearer manifold recently and it made 20whp or so over a stock ported...there is a thread somewhere around here...

stock ported is great but full-race pro stock mani's have been proven a few times to be much better. so the answer your question its full-race by a long shot

You have to debate whether a manifold that cost 4-5 times the money vs a stock ported is worth a few extra ponies

The shearer stock turbo manifold made 21whp over the Buschur ported stock manifold with the FP Green.

I think that going by those results, it should be Number # 1 on the list.
