In most cases you better porting & ceramic coating the standard manifold.
A few decent steel manifolds have been made such as some sold by DP motorsport, KS racing & probably best bet is Mr Ro_Sunny making one up to your requirements.
cheap eBay/Chinese ones are next to useless long term & compared to ported manifold not much or any better in performance.

As above ^ however I did look at getting a protech equal length manifold about 3 years. I liked the quality and design but the shipping was way too expensive from the states I think it was.

Shipping is a killer on USA stuff, shame as they do have some usable stuff at great prices to domestic market.
Ro_Sunny done an equal length stock position & could probably make another one but quality manifold is not cheap.
Personally for under 400hp I would work with original & add decent elbow & spend spare money on decent 70-75mm exhaust ...

I'll give you Oz guys 5 points for that Modena diff, simply awesome.
People want cut out buying shit & put funds to a Modena as makes a HUGE difference to the R's handling/performance.
The latest revised PAR gearsets are good spec too for the price here in Asia.

No worthy exhaust manifolds n Oz then ?

I think we are pretty lucky that Modena produced them and supported a small community, it's really good to see. I'm using a 6Boost manifold which are a local company, pretty affordable and good quality. They make a lot of manifolds for a range of different cars and imo pretty well regarded.

The company my mapper owns are 6boost dealers. £840Inc vat, t3 entry but they will customise.

The question isn't what power level does a standard manifold hinder performance?

I'll dig around and see if I have any photos of it off the car. When I brought mine they only did high mount manifolds for R's and either internal/ external gate and or twin scroll. External only had an outlet so you then need additional fabrication to mount the wastegate. That price seems high but I guess you need to factor freight which is the killer for you guys.

When I looked at getting that manifold from the states shipping was almost $500us!!!

Yeah I'm going to go back to a standard one and ceramic coat it. Zircotec ceramic coat them I think. And lots of colours to choose from to suit your bay!!!

I can't exactly remember but the standard manifold will prevent you from running a larger front housing. On my old motor a had to space the standard manifold out so that a 3inch front housing on the tuebo wouldn't hit the block, so something else to consider. Alternately people have grinded the block.

6boost have a uk website I believe.
Personally I would of thought most UK/Europe owners needing custom manifold would best be talking with Ro-Sunny ...

They don't list on the website but they will do them, I have seen them listed before.

Just an FYI though, they are mild steel.
