Hello, i'm looking to turbocharge my 99 elantra, i would like to purchase the exhaust manifold and the turbo that fits it, or if there is an adapter or something similar that would allow me to bolt a standard turbo to the stock exhaust manifold...

any info, please reply here or email me @ [email protected]


regards !
Steve.

I can get you a log-type manifold for $230 or a stainless steel manifold for $330.

Your choice.

i would be happy to buy the manifold from you.. what payment method do you use?


whats the difference between the two other than the material ?

what kind of turbo fits these manifolds?

also, is there a special adapter that can be used to fit a standard turbo to the stock exhaust manifold.. or does it bolt right on ?


regards.

Steve.

You can buy adapters to fit onto the stock manifold (depending on your manifold). It requires cutting off the flange on the stock manifold and welding on a turbo flange.

Right now, I am accepting all payments via paypal [email protected] E-mail me at [email protected] for shipping prices, details, specs, etc.

rob, one more thing, how much boost can i have with a stock beta engine ? i'm hoping it is at least 6 psi, i dont know if more or less than 6 would be effective in reaching my goal of an extra 50lb of torque near 3000 rpms +/- a few hundred..

i want a fast revving turbo for my hyundai, which is a daily driver, light to light on a daily basis of 30 miles or so... i need that torque !!!!
but i want the easiest possible way to get it, and i dont want to refill any nitrous bottles, or worry about any belts flying off of a blower...

TURBO is for ME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can easily run 6psi on the stock beta. Which size turbo are you going with?

Remember though, boost is addicting.

well, i wasnt specifically going for any size.. i just want the fastest spooling turbo i can get... since i want all the power down low and instantaneous.

which one is best for that application ?

The fastest-spooling turbo on your car would probably be a ball-bearing T3 unit -- but what you're missing is that spool time and overall power are generally a tradeoff.

I could give you a turbo that would fully spool by 1800 RPM's, but the only problem is the boost would drop off to nothing by around 5K RPM's. You'd have lots of power right off the line, but you'd have nothing after you rev it higher.

When you're racing, you don't "start" at 1000 RPm's -- you likely do a little baby launch at around 3K or higher. So if your turbo doesn't start to spool until 3500 RPM's, it really doesn't matter because you're likely gonna start there anyway.

Think about it this way too -- if your turbo is perfectly happy to spool at 2K RPM's, then driving down the highway at 75+ mph is going to be a nightmare. Fuel mileage will go to hell, driveability up hills will get "surgy" if it's not tuned exactly, et al. Just ask Random about his "too eager to spool" Alpine kit.

A "larger" T3 turbo would spool relatively fast (start making positive pressure probably around 2800 RPM's) but would be able to HOLD that boost until redline.

Other things that influence spool time: load on the engine, compression of the engine, cams, fuel tuning, ignition timing (yup), manifold tuning (log style = very bad flow) and air temperature (you'd be suprised)

I sent you an email.

On the subject of turbo sizes... like RED says... its a trade off.

For low boost I would still recommend a Garrett T028... near instantaneous boost... our T028's will light up the tires from a roll in 2nd gear. But if you look at the graphs I posted... it runs out of breath up high. Max on this turbo is probably 275-300 WHEEL hp.

A T3 also comes highly recommended. A little more lag but much better high end. But the lag should be almost unnoticable. 300-350 Wheel hp max.

For even more potential a T3/T4 is even better but you will start to notice some definate lag but the turbo should be good until you see the 400 WHEEL hp mark.

Any more power than that you better break out the MONSTER turbo and forget about seeing power and boost until 5000 rpms.

I'll be providing some insight later this year on exactly how much we can squeeze out of a T3/04E 0.63A/R turbo, some 9:1 pistons, a tuned manifold and some turbo cams.
