    • Innova'Tig develops BMW N54 Top Mount V-BAND single turbo manifold and vents it through the hood

      Well, this is one way to get a big turbo to fit in the N54 engine bay without having to worry about routing exhaust piping. Innova'Tig in Puerto Rico designed this very nice looking top mount V-bang single turbo manifold and simply dumped the exhaust through the hood.


      If they did this to an E82 135i in California, the result would likely be life in prison. Kidding... maybe.

      As far as this being a solution for the street, not really. But for those creating N54 track cars dumping the exhaust through the hood would be a problem only in areas with decibel limits.

      Certainly interesting to look at it...

        Honestly looks beautiful, as stated if for a racecar. Don't see the O2 bungs though.

        Pretty setup for sure! The pics of the manifold must not be complete. I could be blind, but I don't see the WG flange either. Interesting that the decided to go single scroll. Possibly a space issue.

        I believe this setup is referred to as a "hater pipe" Click here to enlarge

        If itís a track queen (like I suspect it is with that exhaust setup), then they probably arenít too worried about spool.
