makes a lot of good stuff for the 240sx. they even make sr20 turbo mainfolds. im not trying to sell anything moderator just giving the guys some info. just like my last post about stb's.

Maybe this would even be remotely appropriate if you posted it 15 TOPICS DOWN, in the topic titled "Any custom exhaust manifold for the SR20DET yet????"

People might be interested in hearing about it there. Starting a new topic like this is like starting a new topic that says, "the sky is blue today." There is no point to it. You haven't enlightened any of us. Maybe if you said something to the effect of, "We just dynoed a car with only this manifold changed and gained 25hp. We think it is due to this, that, and the other."

This post didn't fool anyone. You just got access to JIC Magic stuff and you want to push it hard, along with your fine line of carbon fiber products. Also, you feel 6 cylinder motors are the only thing worth messing with.

guys have a lot of post looking for sr mainfolds. i do not have the time to look for them. now they know it exist. they can find there own s#$%t. i am not a JIC Magic DEALER and never ordered from them. guys were complianing about apexi back orders i gave a solution. the only item i really sell is the front end conversion so you guys dont get jerked any more.

We are dealers for JIC Magic, and thier manifolds are not cheap. Plus they might not even fit our cars since we have the steering knuckle problem. That's why it's so hard to find a manifold for BIG turbo's for our cars.

It's "manifold".

What kind of turbo fits the JIC manifold? T25, T3, T4, or bigger?

Here's a pix from AutoImaging

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial[/img]That's not an SR manifold...check the bolt pattern on the flange. I think that manifold is for a 4G63 (which makes sense since it looks to have a flange for a Mitsu-style turbo).

Excellent point Asad.

Not a SR manifold, agreed.
p.s. JIC does make a manifold for the SR. Expensive stuff tho.

I saw the info on Autoimaging.com. Probably not for the sr. Flange looks different. http://www.freshalloy.com/

damn thats clean. Here is a pic of a SR20 manifold for a T4

Hmmm... thats interesting. is that for a FWD sr20?

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial[/img]Must be...the turbo would hit the block if it was installed on a RWD SR20.

I've read about the JIC manifold, but OBX? what the hell, when did they start making manifolds for the SR20det?

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial[/img]Yes, and the runners would hit the hood. Or the hood would hit the runners, depending on how you look at it.

Yes, there is a lot more clearance than it looks like -- hence jic magic's and obx's designs ^above. But if you compare that fwd manifold to the jic one using the flange as the reference point, you can start to see the height difference between the two. Based only on speculation, I have a feeling that those two rwd manifolds come pretty close to the hood as it is already, but you're right, that's no hard evidence.

It would be pretty interesting to find out for sure though.

Those RWD-specific manifolds actually come up higher than the supposed FWD one. Note that the top of the runners are about 3 "flange" units up, whereas the top of the FWD manifold's runners appear to be only about 2.8 flange units up. Other thing is... as high as the JIC and OBX manifolds look, the top part of those runners are only about as high as the top of the valve cover. The SR20's exhaust ports are located pretty low on the head.

The SR20's exhaust ports are located pretty low on the head. <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial[/img]I'd also say that on the RWD manifold the runners are 3 "flange units" up, measuring from the bottom of the actual flange, which itself is about 3" in height. That would take the runners almost all the way up to the hood, because the distance from the very bottom of the stock flange to the hood is ~9" - 11.5". That particular photo of the FWD manifold appears to me to be even taller than the RWD ones posted here. But I'll take your word for it that the RWD one comes up higher, as the angles of the pictures aren't consistant with each other. For those who are interested, here's a picture of the motor with the hood closed over it.

Most manifold from Japan are factory replacement manifold.
They have longer runner and also bigger tubing so that you'll have more hp just using the stock turbo(or bolt on sport turbo ie GT series).
They are using the cars for road race or drift where maximum hp is not the issue.
In Japan, they sell the T3 or T4 manifold as a turbo kit and we can't use the manifold due to the steering shaft.
If you are looking for a cheap manifold for T3 or T4, try looking for a fabrication shop to custom one for you anything from Japan will be expensive.
FYI the JIC manifold is stock replacement and it's over $1,000.
the photo of the top JIC manifold is for the 4G63 of Lancer EVO 5,6,7.
the Tenzo manifold is also a stock replacement that a factory in taiwan makes for the japan market. Tenzo just brought it over for show.

About that picture of the JIC manifold, i originally thought it was for the SW20 - but the Lancer 4G63 makes sense cause it has the tangential (correct?) turbine inlet. (SW20 has twin scroll- thats where my initial confusion set in)

oh well, just looking at myself talk.

OH! about OBX making a manifold for the SR, when did that crap drop??? OBX? as in "obnoxious brand 'x' "

hmmm.......

Yeah, I'm not too found of OBX.
