• HPF and Doc Race discuss their E46 M3 turbo manifold options including top and bottom mount manifolds

      Finding quality turbo manifold options for BMW's in not an easy proposition these days especially for the S54. Unfortunately, the companies who put in the time to properly design high quality manifolds often have their designs ripped off and sent to Asian fabricators who copy the design and undercut the market. Manifold companies have closed up shop due to this so we are all thankful people like the guys at Doc Race are still bringing quality manifolds to market.


      The design choices and what goes into producing one of these manifolds is discussed in the video below. Doc Race offers both top mount and bottom mount solutions for the S54 allowing for a variety of turbo and placement options. HPF also allows customers to choose the Doc Race manifold if they want as an option for their turbo kits. Very cool of them and nice to see HPF not try to force their own manifold on people but give them the option

        Some teaser photos of DOC Race's Tubular M3 manifold. The end result of the manifolds will be ceramic coated much like the HPF Cast Iron M3 Manifold.

        That's some serious welding. It's beautiful.

        Agreed, it looks great.

        But what does the additional $1400 get a person?

        $1400 on top of a regular kit. Sit tight, I hear something else is in the works on the east coast.

        Looks like there are going to be a few options in the near future. I'm excited to see this community growing so fast the last year.
