This product includes the Top Mount manifold, downpipe & exhaust with v-band connection
Kraken Turbo Manifold for T2/T25 GT5 Bolt turbos has been designed for maximum flow in a short runner type of design, boost is nearly instant and can be use on applications up to 500whp, users have experienced up to 600rpm faster spool up compared to our competitors. (taco manifold not included)
We have designed the manifold to direct the flow of gasses being dumped at the collector for instant boost. The manifold itself has cast iron as its base material however please don’t mistake it for your casual cheap cast iron, the material used is very expensive and very difficult to cast, this is why they are expensive to produce but also why they come with a 5 year unlimited warranty.
The top mount manifold places the turbo high in the engine bay with the wastegate actuator being a bit higher than the cam cover, even though this looks like a mid mounted setup, the turbo cannot go any higher therefore its a Top Mount Setup.
The downpipe connects to the turbo with a custom 3″ bell mouth type cast V-band adapter in stainless steel, then all the way 3″ straight through design with quality Swedish made resonator and muffler tied all together with 304L SS V-bands connections. The exhaust is HAND MADE with all components from 304L SS and TIG welded.
You will not find a better flowing exhaust from any manufacturer worldwide. The Top Mount 3″ GT 5 Bolt V-band adapter is a work of art.
The muffler, resonator and 200 cell metalic cat are made from 304L stainless steel in Sweden by Simons Exhaust Systems.
Simons part numbers are as follow:
-Turbo Heavy Muffler U327600R
-200Cell Metallic CAT UK0376AR (Optional)*
*Please note the exhaust DOES NOT come with a CAT provision as standard, you do have an option to order a CAT and DECAT with the exhaust otherwise it is DECAT type with just a straight pipe where the cat would sit. To add a cat afterwards the exhaust will need to be cut, so please buy the correct exhaust to start with. The cat is sold at trade price, this means it’s being sold for or the same amount we buy it for. **Please note the water hardpipe that runs underneath the exhaust manifold to the heater matrix doesn’t clear the downpipe and it has to bent away from the downpipe, this is done in situ with a bit of force while its still mounted to the head/engine.
We do have a new water pump inlet part and hoses to replace the stock fitting and hose to the heater matrix
