    Vargas single turbo N54 manifold externally gated

    Just a teaser pic so not much to see but an update:

    Both options will be available. The biggest option is GTX3584RS, which they do not make an internally gated housing for. The N55 options, will mostly be internally gated.

    Welding cast materials can be a bit dicey- especially pending on the metallurgical composition of the material combined with these extreme heat areas. Hopefully that is some very high quality cast steel.

    They've stated that it is D5S cast iron. Many people have successfully welded on cast iron. It might not be the most fun to do, but it can be done. Many guys on Sloppy Mechanics page weld a wastegate port directly on the turbine housing. Anywho, better turn down some more orders so you have time to continue to post on VTTs threads...

    Yeah man the 37 seconds it took to type that while on the fly on a Saturday afternoon really dug into the productivity.

    As for the cast iron weld best of luck!

    Instead of spreading your negative outlook on the competition, perhaps share some results from your customers, or maybe even your new offerings. What's that? Crickets? Oh that's right, none of them know what the internet is. Ok, keep sharing some 5+ year old results, that will drive even more of these 'sales' we hear about.
    Appreciate the feedback bubs.

    Robert,

    Thanks for the concern but this is just a teaser pic of the functional prototype manifold. Once it's finished (and tested), it'll be sent out to be cast with EWG flanges and O2 bungs cast into it.

    No welds. No problem. Click here to enlarge

    I'm glad to finally see a cast bottom mount manifold being produced.

    I always ask this and I am sure I already know the answer, will it be 335 x-drive compatible?

    Not sure on the Xi. We're focusing on 335/135 fitment first, Xi will come after.
