VL Performance has put their hat in the ring with this BorgWarner manifold which can hold up to a 9180, will have a clean OEM type installation with a proper filtration system and a completely relocated cooling system. More details coming soon.
EWG was meant to mean External Waste Gate, not electronic vs pneumatic, I've updated the title. Sorry for the confusion, this is an N54 manifold btw.No pwg? everyone skips to ewg so annoying for early pwg n55's..
It requires they make a water pipe modification and perhaps some hoses and a bracket. But its really in a crappy spot in terms of trying to fit a lot of turbo hardware in the area.Having move the water pump seems like a huge pain in the ass, I wonder where it would be relocated to?
I just now looked at that pic and LOL'd. Seriously? That's not really the manifold design they are going with is it?
Who else sees the glaring design defect that completely negates the benefit of even having twin scroll.
Technically, they could still have plans for that divider. I don't see why they couldn't add one in that spot, seems like pretty easy access to weld given its right in the middle of a Y.
