Efficient flowpath with consistent boost control
Keeps wastegate cold-side in cool air for reliability and easy spring changes
Places O2 sensors in ideal location to keep sensor body temps down to prolong life and allow easy access for service
Fewest joints and welds for leak-free, trouble-free operation
Provides ample clearance from all hot-side components
Allows use of stock motor mount isolator
The unique configuration of the manifold, turbo, wastegate, downpipe, and wastegate dump pipe is USPTO patent pending
Similar to our N55 manifold, we designed the N54 manifold to not sacrifice on anything. Maximum bend radii, flow simulation, stress analysis, thermal cycling analysis . . . This manifold design takes an OEM approach to making huge power.
Decisions, decisions . . . choose from over 20 different turbochargers from the best manufacturers. With both T3 and T4 manifolds, you have options.

In order to create the most efficient flow path into and out of the compressor, custom silicone tubing, combined with mandrel formed aluminum tubing is used.
Stainless steel downpipe and wastegate dump, crafted with mandrel bends, tig welds, and cnc flanges.
Clean engine bay, keeping the heat down low and out of the way, just like the factory intended. Lots of room for a generous sized air filter (important to minimize pressure delta across filter, as small filters can create pressure drops and increased turbo bearing wear, shortening the life of your turbo).
Note - it is possible to keep the coolant overflow tank in the original location, we just prefer moving it to give a cleaner look, and allow more airflow on the turbo side of the engine.
Currently verified on LHD E8X and E9X, both AWD and RWD
