Turbo headers?

I think you mean a turbo manifold. Headers are for naturally aspirated cars.

Any turbocharged car has a turbo manifold, it's the turbocharged vehicle's equivalent of an exhaust manifold.

Headers just for NA's? No. Manifolds are casted collectors. Headers are tubular and steel, collecting at different points to vary tuning. Headers are for ANY engine. So are manifolds. The difference has nothing to do with whether it's an NA or Turbo, only with their construction and function.

I'm sure there are technicalities I don't know about, like these, but I've always heard of NA cars having just exhaust manifolds / headers and turbo cars having turbo manifolds. Thanks for correcting me.

Turbo header 2 liter turbo eclipse



Turbo manifold 2liter turbo eclipse




See the difference? It's the same way with NA engines...header is what a tubular manifold is referred to as.

To m knowledge there aren't any manufactured but I don't know. Someone here a while back "made" a REALLY badass setup.

Maybe your talking about Ron Ramirez (jt2ma71) he have indeed made an awesome custom turbo header. There's RPS and sound-performance that made turbo headers too, like Greddy, Blitz and some other company in japan. PHR with there HKS cast manifold replica too.

So we have plenty of choice.

I am building a tubular header/manifold as we speak. It should be done in a few weeks. I will post pics soon.
