    theory of turbo exhaust

    just sounds funny to me to put a ton of money into making your engine flow well with nice heads, bigger bore, stroke and exhaust, then take your 6 inches of exhaust ( 2 X 3" collectors ) and funneling it into a little @$$ t-4 or t-6 flange ???

    am i looking at this wrong ??

    thats an awesome link buddy thank you very much.

    >>>so is it safe to gather (or theorize lol ) that the 5k i have in heads and stroker kit, etc etc is not exactly a waste because even through
    the small 6.0 manifolds its going to produce a F-ton of back pressure thus spooling the turbo faster ????

    essentially yes but like the link says you still want to have large primarys otherwise it will hurt the top end so the manifolds will help down low but hurt it up top
