Has anyone taken the cheap eBay turbo manis cut the flange off flipped the pipes and rewelded the thing? Basically making it a top mount?
I have a swift gt motor in my samurai and want it turbo. But the off the shelf GT turbo manis work work due to the turbo mounting position.

Yes you can.....OR you can contact Turbine Tech in canada and they can make a turbo manifold to fit into the samurai that GTi powered. It's where mine is coming from...


Another alternative is to buy a D-Series Honda Turbo Manifold and cut off and reweld a swift GTi flange onto it....The port spacing is the same

I would love to have turbine tech make me one but he quoted me like $600+ when I asked a couple years back. How much is yours costing? I'll have to look into that Honda option!
Thanks for heads up

I don't think the D-series head flange was changed at all throughout the years so any should work


I was quoted $795 for a top mount stainless steel manifold to fit into the samurai!...Get what you pay for..
