    Yes, the manifold is cast into the head. When the focus first came out this definitely seemed like a terrible idea but it somehow works. I was making 350whp on my gtx2867r with stock everything.

    The guys that will be doing my block made 655 WHP with the 'headifold' Just a basic built block. drop in cams, valves, ported + polished.

    It somehow does pretty good once you open the head up a bit.

    Basically, pretend that is the turbo flange.... and it still looks tiny

    That video you posted they said they ported the head.. is that then included in the head porting?

    Theres not much material to port at the "power-hole' per say. but internally there is work that can be down to smooth out the runners and get some better velocity.

    That's pretty interesting. Be hard to fit a turbo closer to the motor than they have there. Compact!

    Can fit up to a precision 6262 or a gtx3582r. And those are probally the biggest I would ever go on a 2.0 Liter. On a side note, picked up the new toyota for the old wifey. 2017 Corolla XSE fully loaded. Shes quite happy with it.

    Well photobucket new rules have screwed over all my build threads. Fuck.

    For the time being, enjoy this update :



    After trying to get in touch with a certain shop for the last 30 days with no luck, another shop has stepped in and is helping me finish this build.

    Panda Motorworks will be helping me finish this build.

    Chris is building me a fully built 2.0 long block :

    PANDA MOTORWORKS SPEC'D 2. 0 ECOBOOST LONG BLOCK
    Manley H Beam Rods
    Manley Extreme Duty 88MM Pistons
    King Rod Bearings

    I bought a new GEN 2 Garret GTX3071r (I know, i had a gtx3076r a few months ago and sold it. The new gen 2 gtx3071r is now rated for 650hp and spools about 300 rpm faster, its a no brainer at this point.) This will hold me over for now.

    Also will be sending in my custom intake manifold to be modified for my AUX fuel setup. The intake manifold spacer tapped for a fuel injectors will not fit with the after market manifold. Instead, Chris is going to modify my manifold and build a fuel rail, injector setup with a fuel controller for me.

    Stay Tuned!

    Decided to go with Manley I beams instead of the H Beams. I beams are rated all the way up to 1250 flywheel HP on a 4 banger application where as the h beams are only recommended for up to 600 hp applications. Even though they are twice the cost, its an easy decision to build the motor right, the first time.
