6Boost should be able to supply you with one, otherwise just get a whole kit off ASE. In saying that though, flipped LS1 manifolds do work well, know a guy who's running 600kw in his VT and he's using them.

Do you know what exactly needs to be trimmed ? I'm considering do this with mine once it's engineered .

I used VE SS cast manifolds reversed. I think they are L98 or L76 engines..? Picked a set up cheap as sh*t from an exhaust shop, still had the nice heat shields on! Cut them back to clear the rails & weld V-bands on them. Don't waste your time with the 2 bolt flanges, they don't seal as well as v-bands or the 3 bolt manifolds you get off the truck engines. The cross over pipes are 21/4" diameter. The LS1 VT-VZ manifolds wont fit 1st gen cars.

Sorry to hijack a thread but save starting anotherone. I've just finished building my 383 for a vs commodore though its not a ls1 it's the good old guzzling 304 block.
In short thinking of going down the single turbo road and want some ideas and preferably some pics of different manifolds.
My options now are reversed standed ones though I think in a detailed bay looks like you lost instrest and just slapped the pipes up.
Another option give it a crack making my own 4-1 steam pipe ones
and the 3rd is bend over and walk funny and get someone like proflow, extream turbo manifolds to make then
Any ideas or photos would be great.
I know I'd love to too the pipes on that vt senator lakerz or ls1 power to get and idea of what I'm after

Thanks

Pro flow are a lot cheaper compared to the rest of the market considering its VPWs own brand and the quality of there products is usually pretty good from my experience.

Wouldn't bother doing them yourself tbh. A mate fab'd up his own turbo manifold on his LSX, needless to say the power he gained by getting it redone by a professional later on was amazing. That way you can also have it look however you want it to.
