Manifold Design and Construction
All 6boost manifolds are designed around our CNC cut and precision welded merge collectors that have set the benchmark for quality and performance for nearly 2 decades. A merge collector in turbo manifolds offers several significant benefits, making it a crucial component for optimising exhaust gas flow and enhancing overall turbocharger performance. Here are the key advantages of using a merge collector:
Improved Exhaust Gas Flow: A merge collector effectively combines the exhaust gases from individual cylinders into a single, more streamlined flow. This merging process reduces turbulence and backpressure, allowing exhaust gases to exit the engine more efficiently. The smoother flow results in faster evacuation of exhaust gases, improving engine breathing and increasing overall engine performance.
Enhanced Turbocharger Response: By optimizing exhaust gas flow, the merge collector reduces turbocharger spool-up time. Faster spool-up enhances turbocharger response, minimizing turbo lag, and providing improved throttle response. This translates to quicker acceleration and better power delivery, especially at lower engine RPMs.
Increased Horsepower and Torque: The efficient evacuation of exhaust gases with a merge collector ensures that the engine's cylinders are fully scavenged during the exhaust stroke. This scavenging effect maximizes the fresh air intake during the intake stroke, resulting in increased horsepower and torque throughout the entire RPM range.
Equalization of Cylinder Contributions: A well-designed merge collector ensures that each cylinder's exhaust gases contribute proportionally to the overall exhaust flow. This equalization helps balance cylinder pressures, reducing the risk of one cylinder's exhaust interfering with another and promoting smoother engine operation.
Reduction in Exhaust Gas Heat: The smoother flow and reduced backpressure achieved with a merge collector can lead to lower exhaust gas temperatures. This is beneficial for turbocharged engines, as lower exhaust gas temperatures can help protect sensitive turbocharger components from heat-related damage.
A well-designed merge collector in turbo manifolds plays a critical role in optimizing exhaust gas flow, reducing backpressure, and improving turbocharger response. The benefits of using a merge collector include increased horsepower and torque, better engine performance, and enhanced turbocharger efficiency, making it an essential component for maximizing the potential of turbocharged engines.

Why do we use mild steel over stainless steel?
- Differential Expansion: Stainless steel typically has a lower coefficient of thermal expansion than some other materials used in turbo systems, such as cast iron or Inconel. This difference in expansion rates between the stainless-steel manifold and other components, such as the turbocharger housing or exhaust flanges, creates additional stress at the interfaces during thermal cycling.
- Brittle Behaviour: Stainless steel, depending on its alloy composition, can exhibit brittle behaviour at high temperatures. When the material undergoes cyclic heating and cooling, it becomes more susceptible to crack initiation and propagation, especially if it has low ductility at elevated temperatures.
- Thermal Cycling Fatigue: The continuous thermal cycling leads to localized deformation and microscopic cracks within the stainless steel. Over time, these microcracks can grow and link, eventually resulting in visible cracks and structural failure.
It is our experience that for the regular heat cycles of a daily driven vehicle a mild steel turbo manifold will far out last a stainless item due to the above properties.
