    There won't be any more messed up tags :) i made a little fixture to get the perfect curve to fit thr pipe every time.

    So this will fit an HX35 with BEP turbine hsg with no water bending, etc?
    Why the carbon steel flanges? Needed the stiffness for less deflection and better seal?

    I'm interested! Will it work with a 20g 10cm/housing? And can the waste gate hole be temporarily capped?

    Carbon steel flanges are for les warpage during use, and manufacturing, it's a softer material then stainless so when heated will seal to the head better and if removed will not have warpage after heatcycling like stainless, in my experience at least.

    Thats not to say if you did wanted stainless flanges, i can accomidate you for an additional upcharge and wait time for ordering.

    This manifold sits lower then a stock one so the compressor clears the waterpipe completly.

    It would work if your 20g is a T3 turbine housing, i can do with or without wastegate provision, if you wanted it capped as a temporary thing, there are companies that make vband blockoffs for the tial 44mm port.

    If you are looking for a stock replacement manifold with dsm flange, and no wastegate provision i can arrange that also, but would use the same placement and runner design as the t3. This could make your oem o2 housing and down pipe sit a little bit lower by a couple inches and I'm not sure if that would cause an issue or not. If i get a hold of an FP manifold i can use that placement for a 100% stock replacement manifold, and be confident that everything else would be plug and play like stock. Just havent gotten there yet. I have big plans for my manifold line up, but I'm a one man show, and it could take a little while.

    How far does it drop the turbo?

    Hey everyone! I've had a lot of guys ask about holset fitment, i was able to grab a new precision .82AR t3 housing to verify clearance concerns for you guys. There is plenty of room for this housing on a 6466 so i would assume an hx35/40 with .70AR would be physically smaller. Unfortunately, I'm not able to 100% say the holset will fit without someone actually sending me one, or someone giving it a try for themselves. Also as you can see, water pipe clearance 100% will not be an issue with the AF T3. Heres some pictures of the 6466 installed on one of the manifolds with that .82AR housing.

    Feel free to email archer.fabrications@gmail.com or pm me for any questions!

    Have any plans of doing a top mount t3 version?

    Yes i do, but currently the top mounts I'm working on are both divided t4, and are still in R&D. I plan to have a small verity of manifold options but I'm creating these runner designs and turbo placements from scratch, and takes a little bit to document the build process, and make a fixture for reproduction.

    There are plans for:

    2 styles topmount t4 divided

    Bottom mount t4 divided

    Topmount t3 open

    And a stock replacement manifold with dsm flange and setup for internal wastegate. If things start to take off I'll be offering kits that could include Dump tubes and vband down pipes to compliment the manifolds.

    Why two styles? Explain the differences and things?

    Something to consider is that this manifold appears to place the turbo directly where the front engine mount bracket would be on a 1G. I may be wrong. Great looking work either way!

    Hey Archer, would you be able to fabricate a v-band turbo outlet if measurements were given to you? Thanks.

    I dont see that being an issue. Placement would be the same, design would be the same.

    I think it will clear. But if someone wants to send a front roll stop i can verify 100%

    Rhag? BTW, I was referring to measurements on my current tubular manifold :(

    meant to say "that", but my iphone keyboard got the better of me. If i do a vband manifold it will use the same turbo placement as the t3, so no need for your current manifolds measurements.

    Alright guys, good news for the 1g guys, this manifold does fit the 1g and clears the front roll stop bolted to the motor. @donniekak was nice enough to send me this picture of his FP 3586HTZ mounted on one of the AF t3 manifolds, and this is what clearance looks like, his turbo uses FP's FAP cover so the bigger t04S cover could possibly require a small amount of grinding to the mount. We have not comfirmed the t04S cover yet but wanted to give an update to the 1g guys!
