Turbo Manifold

Woke up this morning from another turbo dream and I can't help but wonder what's wrong with developement these days. What I don't understand is why hasn't a company stepped up and started developing a turbo manifold for our cars. If you really think about it its not that hard... its been done before.. Simply take a pipe that connects the 2 down pipes and direct the exhaust near the battery (we would have to relocate the battery to the trunk). Honestly a company can sell this manifold for 3-4 hundred and there's still going to be a lot of us that would buy it. If shipping is the problem what they can do is to do it in 2 pieces. Jus wanna know what you guys think. Lmk

Simple - Not enough demand.

This is a prime reason why the Comptech exhaust is so expensive. It is produced in small lots. (Usually 20 - 25 units)

Hopefully once all the civics start doing J Swaps we will get more aftermarket support....I mean theres enough cars with the J in it that there should be a decent demand

Only thing is that to make a turbo manifold they would have to make a full exhaust head which would deter a lot of companies
