Some industrial manifolds position the turbo like a 3rd gen manifold, but have square ports. If you can find one of those that would be best. But I've heard of people hogging out a 3rd gen manifold too.




Or you could try one of the spring only actuators. Bullseye Power makes them as well as Engineered Diesel and I'm sure some others.

Cummins sells a whole whack of different manifolds for different applications. Before hacking the hell out of a round port manifold i would be searching for a used 12v top mount manifold first!

found one 3hrs south down in texas.. i droved down yesterday and got it. threw on a coat of VHT and here she is.. finally it fits lol! i actually had to trade the guy turbos to cuz on mine my wastegate went strait down when bolted up to the manifold and this one is at a 90* facing towards the front of the motor. mine facing downward was hitting the block.
