Oh so this never happened? I agree, Full-Race makes some of the BEST manifolds!

Also, they are adopting new turbo technology, the Borg Warner EFR!

I'm going to use their twin-scroll T4 manifold on my Sr20det.

Nice! Also a former RSX owner and I know Full Race was top notch with their Honda applications. Can't wait to see what they have in store for the N54.

Full-Race is working on a T4 Twinscroll EFR setup for the 335i. Looking forward to see what you guys come up with.

HPF should be banned for that travesty of a turbo kit they built over the last 20 years. Vishnu knows tuning but the FFTEC turbo kit leaves much to be desired in my opinion. If anyone gets the hardware right - it will be Full-Race.

You haven't seen the production kit pictures of our single turbo kit. Compared to the prototype system on our car, the runners are 50% shorter, more equal length and the merge is at a narrower angle. Don't see how much more of an improvement is possible given space constraints. And FWIW, the head fabricator at FFTEC used worked at Full Race. He's quite exceptional.

Using a mid to large frame EFR turbo has a potential packaging advantage in that it has an internal wastegate. But the physically longer CHRA and huge turbine and compressor casting does require some compromises with the rest of the kit to make it fit. We had a few EFR turbos on hand during the development process so we've looked at everything from a number of different angles, both figuratively and literally. In the end, fitting a custom turbo kit in a car requires some compromises. It's just a matter of picking the lesser of two evils from time to time.
