After now running the 1.6 manifold and Garrett downpipe for the past 3 months we’re quite confident in its design, while this is still technically a pre-production piece the core of its design is now finalised and agreed.
Keep in mind here that the BOFI Low Mount places the flange at the same position for both the 1.6 and the 1.8 and the downpipe length is the same regardless of EFR or Garrett. You could go from a GT2554R all the way up to a GT2871R in size and use the same downpipe on the same manifold, moving to an EFR would require a different downpipe as its connection is VBand.
The downpipes are 3″ end to end and will finish at a set point around the gearbox. From there a link pipe will be employed to mate to a standard exhaust system allowing the downpipes to be agnostic of the chassis or year of the engine.
Note that this is a downpipe for the GT turbo series, its design will be different for the EFR but will take the same route around the gearbox casting.
Any questions please get in touch.
