The current design specially says in the description:

HOWEVER, they are currently looking to develop a header that would use one large tube in the center that covers both center D port holes. It looks like they are very interested in following through with this.

SOOO my advice would be to start a NEW list with D-Port guys who are interested in a set of TURBO manifolds. If there is enough of those, it may be enough to verify the market is there for them.

Heck Ill even start the list.

Round ports manifolds look nice....

I really hate seeing all that sealing area being wasted on the latest d-port design... I'd try to make use of all that area plus adding the center bar into it as a structural aid.. pipes can be as intended though.
Porous casts and various back pressures will concur with me on this... not to mention other potential factors.

Steve just sent me a message about the D Ports. It sounds like this is going to happen... The trick is getting enough guys in on the D port headers to get the price down. It would be considered a separate Group Purchase on its own... But it looks like Steve is willing to work with everyone if there is enough sales...

But, glad to hear the general consensus is a good one. I can get some flanges ordered up to keep in stock if we do get some of those ordered as well. Should be to have flanges and material ready within 2-3 weeks on the set up.

I’m not sure if its been asked or not yet, but unfortunately, since the two headers (Ram Air vs Stock D-Port) require different set ups and material bends, I cannot incorporate both designs into the same group pricing. (As in, 3 Ram Air headers and 2 D-port headers will not equal a group order of 5 turbo headers.)

However, if both group orders are able to get ordered within a week or so of each other, pricing will be equivalent across both designs.

(We usually charge an additional fee for new turbo header designs- due to tooling and fixture time) However, we will waive the set up fee if we can do a group order on the D-Port header as well.

Thanks again!
