    Default XS power manifold?

    Are they worth buying? is anyone around here running them? ive tried searching and cant come up with anything. They are a good price, im getting ready to drop my 1JZ into my starion and am looking to go single with my HX35 on there. I want to keep it T3 for now and XS looks like a decient manfold..

    thanks mike.

    I am not sure they make a t3 manifold for the 1j, but I know they make a t4 manifold. They are said to flow pretty well, and I am sure it would be great for your t3 turbo you are looking at. I am in the process of putting one on my 7m, and they are known to put out some decent numbers. If you are looking for a t4 manifold, and want to put a t3 adapter flange on it, I have a friend that may be interested in selling you his. Let me know if that would interest you.

    They make a t3 flange for the 1j, I was just curious of the quality of the manifold itself.

    It is decent quality for the price. You really cant beat it. If you aren't looking for huge numbers it is a good manifold. Why are you looking at the t3 over the t4?

    It looks like every other china header on the market.. I really think its all the same header sold bye 52 different companies.
    And yes you can't beat the quality vs cost.. but if it were me I would buy it. Ck to makes sure the gaskest will acutally seal around the ports correctly we seen problem in niw 2j header.. also switch the 4 bolt to vband wg flange and brace up the flanges and add a lower brace to support the turbo weight

    Also if your not fixed on a t3. Order it in a t4 divided. Sooner or later you will end up going that route I think most people do. Imo
    91 bmw 525 I. 1jz swap . Ported head. Cp pistons 9:1 compression. Aem 320pump. Stage 4 Comp clutch and lw fly. Percision 6262 and 46mm wg . 1200cc inj. Ms3pro management . In the process of adding a 2nd fuel pump have swapped to 272s. also going to a 6266 1.0 ....641hp/500trq.... for now

    iam running a HX35 with that T3 manifold. quality seems pretty good. i have over 2k miles on it already and its holding up fine...
    the turbo sits pretty straight foward. instead of being a little twisted. if you know what i mean... you might have to make a flange for the wastegate or just cut the one thats on the manifold off i dont know wtf they were thinking with that weird 6 bolt fkn thing. anyways overall good manifold go for it.

    Yep, check the gasket fitment. In the pic you can see all 6 ports are oval, and 2/5 ports are actually round on a 2j. I put mine togher and had a huge exhaust leak. Had to pull it out and weld up the port

    You can see the port mismatch from the exhaust on the gasket.

    I added them there for collecting data. With AEM you can trim individual cyclinders, and with my intake having slightly different runner lengths, we want to be able to tune them.

    Thanks guys, im trying to stay T3 fro now because i already have the holset and its freshly rebuilt. Yeah i could sell it and go T4 but for all im after i think ill have a pretty fun and healty street car.. Ill probably pick up this manifold and do some extra bracing on it just to be on the safe side.


    The 6 bolts on the wastegate flange is so you can run a two bolt or 4 bolt style wastegate. I have a 38mm Tial 2 bolt wastegate. but i may have to modify the wastegate pipe anyway. Im thinking as long as i brace the flange and add a support to the bottom i should be good. I was just curious to see if anyone else was running them and having major problems.

    thanks, mike
