Anyone know if the manifold made in this B-13 featured in this write-up on NPM will be available anytime soon??

I just e-mailed them through turbonetics with the same question.
Sorry if this has already been covered and beat to death but I don't read here much as I am still NA until this summer.

Is not a "new" design , theyve made that manifold for a few years now..they make those as you order them- I believe it is the FMAX Stage 4 or 5... last i recall they run aroun $1500-1600 uncoated, but that was before Turbonetics bought FMAX, I would only assume theyve gone up in price since then... and Im sure youll wait 2-3, maybe even 4-6 weeks to get one.... FMAX has never been much for helpin out the little guy(individuals), let alone now that theyre owned by Turbonetics... Thats why I prefer ProTech - Top-Notch quality at a great price and serves the little guy just as fast and friendly as they would a large business..
IMHO fu** FMAX!!

If you want that design we at Protech can make it for you and even improve on it. If it's for a street car I really don't recommend it though, IMHO the primaries are too long to maintain a good velocity for a turbo manifold, and it sits too close to the distributor/wiring harness. But we are more than experienced enough to build you this manifold of a stellar quality and performer.

I think that style may be a "tad" long as well which is why we cut mine short and placed the center of the turbo on the edge of the radiator, the hot side is far from everything, and only the WG dumpt tube comes clost to any harnesses or plastic. I think a simple coating will prevent any and all melting of the dist. cap from the WG Dump tube. mainly because the Dump isn't always dumpingand it is a good 1.5-2" away.

Protech will make whatever you want with great quality man, speed costs though.
