    Hey Tuners! We have been working hard to create new products for the community, one of which we are proud to announce is our new Top mount T3/T4/Vband manifolds.

    For full product line and purchasing please visit our brand new webstore, located at www.archerfabrications.com


    AF 2g Topmount T3/T4/Vband Turbo Manifold $950.00 + Shipping

    For the street car enthusiast we have developed a Top mount to keep most of Your stock amenities, this top mount faces the compressor housing to the passenger side like stock, Allowing you to keep your stock style charge and exhaust pipe routing.

    can keep stock 1g radiator and will need to use pusher fans, but it is a very tight fit and a sirrico style radiator is recommend for easier installation and a little extra clearance room.

    7bolt blocks may need to have a small unnecessary portion of the block casting filed down where one of the front transmission bolts would have gone. Manifold is designed around a 6bolt block in a 2g

    can keep your alternator location stock as well. This manifold has been verified to fit T3 turbos as large as forced performance's "super94/super99" and Precision Turbo's H cover, "6870" size turbos.

    All Archer Fabrications, LLC. Turbo manifolds are one of a kind hand crafted pieces. Runner design may vary slightly from the displayed picture.

    Made in the USA and intended for "off road use."

    -Fully back purged using the purest liquid argon (99.98%) and state of the art purging tools

    -304L schedule 40 stainless runners

    -1/2" 1018 steel CNC Machined Head Flange and Turbo Flange

    -TIAL 44mm MVR stainless waste gate inlet flange by default

    -Runner entries and collector are welded inside and out for utmost strength

    -All flanges welded using thick aluminum heat sinks to prevent warpage during welding

    -Flanges decked flat to ensure perfect seal

    -compatible with stock 1g radiator with Pusher fans (however, tucked sirrico style radiator is still recommended for the extra space)

    -3 year warranty against weld defects to the original purchaser from the date shipped



    NOTE:

    How much for a divided t4 collector without wastegate provisions?

    I know it's nothing you posted - but love the work!

    Dang! Just reviewed both of your new topmounts and i'm torn between the two for accessory reasons. Any chance you will be coming out with a forward facing manifold before I make my decision?

    Have you decided on making Topmount T4TS Mani's with 1.5 inch runners I will perhaps be interested. This bottom mounts a pain in the are. LMK. I maybe working on taking the ETS TS T4 one I have and selling it. Beautiful work you do. Keltalon swears by it and I see why!

    If i can get a hold of an existing forward facing for dsm to make a fixture from yes i could. The reason i havnt yet is cause my motor is out of the car.

    Yes but it would be nice to go with the manifold you sell.

    Hey everyone! We made another 2g dsm top mount, but this time with a hood exit dump tube and a 3" side exit exhaust. Complete hot parts kit for this manifold will be available in the near future.

    Able to keep power steering, stock alternator location, and a 1g full sized radiator with pusher fans. But an mk3 golf tucked rad is recommended.

    Normally the exhaust would be polished but this one is getting a titanium cerakote!

    This may be a dumb question, but does it make a HP difference between to or bottom mount?

    In theory yes, a top mount has less curves and more volume in runner length then the typical bottom mount. I dont have any dyno results Or cad testing to back that up though. Normally a top mount is a convienience of installation thing for larger turbos. Plus they look bad ass. But yes a top mount *should* make more hp then a bottom mount. Also, our drag top mount which faces the turbo in a reverse orentation should make even more power then this one, based on the runner length and even less bends then the manifold shown here. The drag manifold requires a lot to be deleted to sacrifice for that extra flow gains but does allow the fitment of a 42R and possibly a 45R size turbo with hood modifications. While the 2g "street" one will fit up to an FP super99 or precision 6870 size maximum. This manifold is marketed toward the 2g street enthusiast and allows you to keep most of your stock placement accessories.
