Steed Speed to Start making N54 Twin Scroll CNC Manifolds.

I am not sure if some of you may know but the company Steed Speed made the HPF E46 M3 Turbo Manifolds for some time. Their quality is top notch and well know within the turbo diesel world, MazdaSpeed, E36 turbo guys along with a few other platforms. Leen is the owner of Steed Speed and loves to provide top quality parts but only offering the manifolds. He lets his products speak for themselves and if you review them you can read all about it.

You can go back to some 2012 threads on here and some other forums and see Jake and Dzenno talking are about Steed Speeds manifold design and looking to purchase what was then the prototype that was never released. Now we can see were they took the manifold design from that is in sale today and provides amazing results.

I have been in contact with Leen earlier in the year asking about starting up the project for the manifold again and he more or less did not really know how the N54 market was doing so I sent him some updates. Just a few weeks ago I asked for some more updates about a manifold and again it was still on the back burner. Long story short I just happen to win a raffle for a free Manifold within his current lineup, considering I dont have any cars they would work on he decided its time to make the N54 manifold!!

The good news here is that every step of the way we have been in contact seeing what I want in the manifold design what he thinks is going to work best ect. This design will be like a Moitv Manifold, but with the build experience and best build quality from Steed Speed.

Q&A

Q - What are they going to cost?
A This is not set in stone but Leen from Steed Speed has mentioned that he wants to keep the price low in order to get this out to the masses and does not see it going over $1100.

Q Can we see pictures?
A As of right now I dont have any pictures but I will update as I do get them. He is not willing to show the cad design and exhaust passages for obvious reasons.

Q Is there going to be a company making a kit of out this manifold.
A Yes that company is going to be CES Motorsport. Originally VTT was asked but he turned it down.

Q Is this going to be twin Scroll?
A Yes

Q Where is the placement of the O2 and WG?
A More than likely at the face of the manifold, although I have not seen the prototype just yet so this is TBD.

Q Who is the geared towards?
A Mostly the DIYer who wants to make a kit for themselves and have the hard part out of the way. Although this would be a great opportunity for other companies to come up with kits around the manifold.

Q Is this really going to happen?
A I would say its more than a safe bet. Leen has already started working on the Cad design and the first prototype went for cutting today to be sent over the CES.



Q When will the Manifold be finished.
A I dont know this yet, but considering how things are moving very fast its a good sign it would be done before winter is over.

Without the Q&A's it may have looked less suspicious.

haha not pushing anything sharing it for the users who have been waiting for manifold to base a ST DIY off of. I am not gaining anything except the chance to build a good ST kit.

Suspicious in the fact I am selling it People ask a million questions so I thought of all the ones that would be the most common. Never thought to much information could be a bad around here.. wait wait we are on e90post

Maybe I should stick to posting what exhaust tips and muffler delete is best...
