Stumble upon FSR Motorsport's e46 build (Tubular Ex Mani!)
 
Here is the link.

They are basically building a tubular exhaust manifold with sch 10, 1.5 inch primaries.
Sounds promising and seem like they have the first one built already.
And they seem legit.
I am not related to them at all, just passing on this info.

FSR are great people. i used to work for them a few years back, they are very meticulous about little details and customer service. Ian is a genius when it comes to fabrication and tuning!

That looks like a nice piece.

Nice find, 1.5" sounds promising.

I heard about their turbo kit coming out. Very different from the HPF kit that uses cast manifold if I am not mistaken, FSR's manifold should be beneficial if not to say the least over a cast manifold.

I do have my car serviced by FSR and I would be no where on my build if it weren't for them. Ian like everyone else has said has a gift with fabrication and tuning. Eric as well has a gift for electrical and can diagnose anything you throw at him of it has to deal with electrical. If you ask about FSR in the supra community you will hear nothing but great reviews. For anyone who wants to slap a turbo on their e46 why not FSR who have extensive knowledge with turbo applications (MKIV Supras) and know what they're doing with no cut corners.

You honestly won't be dissapointed with their customer service and quality work they do. Their new manifold will not dissapoint...

I am so close to pulling the trigger on a turbo kit.. now with FSR in the game, the decision has just got harder! lol

^^^ I would definitely wait a few more months in picking a company to go with. A Lot of new things/options coming out for us.

02black330ci 07-26-2012 11:10 PM

^^^ I agree 100% with this!

Dreikraft 07-27-2012 12:30 AM

great find OP. anyone contacted FSR for the estimated release date?

zcchen 07-27-2012 02:18 AM

Yea.. The AEM infinity may change the game soon again.. lol.. but competition is good!

I have had FSR work on at least 6 of my cars, and they are BY FAR the BEST company I have ever dealt with. They are really good fabricators and extremely smart tuners. I would highly recommend the shop and the owners (Ian and Eric). They are the type of people to go out of their way if you need anything.

You are most wise in pursuing this. IMO, there is a 20 to 30% loss in power due to the bottleneck that the current two exhaust manis being used for our builds (HPF cast and the Steed).
This loss becomes greater as the turbo size increases.

You will see a lot lower EGT's with the 1.5 inch tubing too! Everything runs cooler, less stressed and more power with less boost.
You need to modify the intake tube at the same time. it IS possible to run a Giant AFE filter and still retain your AC unit, BTW.

Good luck.

Spoke with fsr today. They plan on a tuner package (mani, dpipe,etc) for those that are already turbocharged.
Depending on their timeframe I might bring the car down this fall.

dallasberry 07-27-2012 04:04 PM

I like the looks of this manifold :)

323tom 07-27-2012 04:30 PM

I spoke with them a few weeks ago about this tubular mani... Hopefully I can test one of these out before my car leaves Chicago ;)
