im looking to keep my ac on the vehicle. texas is stupid hot. i was trying to find a ac friendly manifold but would like some feed back on what company to get it with. i would hate to be on a long drive and manifold cracked a weld or something. Please chime in. thanks

Two Australian places that make the manifold's are AVO and Suzitech. For North America you might try Turbine Tech in Canada who have lots of Swift experience.

Just called them 625 shipped to text. I'll be using a t25 Garret. It's gonna be ac friendly yay!!! I'll be getting it at the end of the month. Take about 8 days to make once t order is placed. Anyone here use a garret t25? It's off a Sr20det. Was going to boost my Nissan but decided not to sincey engine is only 1 of 500 made.

200hp out of that SR16? That's pretty damn impressive. How did you manage to get a hold of that engine?

Im happy with it ... It's a sr16ve N1 it's 200hp out the box. This was the highest hp 4 cylinder engine until the s2000 came out. I have all the bolt on possible so it's alittle bit more. I purchased the car with the engine and added the bolt ons afc neo exhaust and the list goes on. Nissan designed this engine to compete with the civic type r and it kicked it's ass.

Here's a example

Yeah. Few people have used T25's. I have a GT2554.

Depends on whether you are using a ball bearing version, the turbo's turbine section, whether you have aftermarket ECU (to play with timing etc to help spooling), what your exhaust manifold is like (log, equal length tubes, tube diameter). On my ball bearing turbo with a log manifold I was seeing boost by around 1200-1500 rpm and full boost by about 4500 (this is from memory, dont have my ECU logs around).

Recently changed to an equal length tube header with much larger pipes and good collector design. We are aiming for a lot more boost but despite the increased tube size we were still getting boost from about 1700 and full boost (10.5 pounds on testing at the moment) by 4700rpm.

If you are using a chipped ECU with many of the chips out there and a good turbine tech manifold I think the above numbers are in the ballpark. With a standard compression engine (which mine was) the power delivery is really good. On a chip (like Garndi's) you will probably be looking at around 100kW at the wheels. With Aftermarket ECU you could go a lot higher (At moment I am seeing 133kW at 10.5 psi boost - with some trickery, previously was 123kW on 11psi)

this is the standard t25 none ball bearing. will get upgraded with a gt28rs when i can afford it. as of right now i will be using a super afc set up for engine management. been doing some research on mega squirt but seem like a headache. i believe my manifold is going to be a tubular type manifold. one that they have listed for 625 on a pulsar is the tubular type but will be asking. dont really like log style no offense. its just my preference.
