Any New Single Turbo Manifolds in the works??

After going through the ShuadFab thread and not really seeing anything promising to come, my question for everyone here is Has anyone heard anything about manifolds being made up? Or even better will Motiv allow sale of just their manifold? I have no issues with the current complete ST kits on the market..I would just like to build my own with a different turbo they dont supply. The shop im dealing with is fully capable of making me a mani but i figured its best to buy one that has proven performance and results behind it.

We will not be selling our manifold seperately. However, we are totally willing to work with someone if they are wanting to run a different turbo with our setup.

If you want a top mount I'd talk to Payam at VM. I'm sure he can work with you on something considering they are all made to order. He won't dick you around like that other brand you bought

What BW were you thinking? Some of those things are BIG. Would be a tight fit.

Pats has an excellent point. The BW EFR line of turbos are excellent but the housings are very large.

Hate to be negative but the last posts I've seen were from 2014 and that was people all asking about updates and not getting any. I'm going to shoot them a email

Leen from steed is not on the forums. The WGA rod is being redesigned so a Turbosmart WGA can fit in there. In all honestly 2014 was not that long ago. Best way to reach him would be FB. When I get mine I will be posting up info.
