* STM Exhaust Manifold - Forward-Facing T3 Turbo - Evo 7/8/9



Fits these Applications:
2001-2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII VIII IX
(*See all install notes below before purchase)

Way back in 2008, STM set the bar and created the bolt-on Forward Facing Manifold, utilizing the existing bumper vent as an open-air source for the turbo to feed.

STM's notorious Forward-Facing Turbo Manifold places the turbo right in the wide open front bumper of the Evo VIII & IX. If you have records to break, or shows to attend, this set-up will blow your competition away. All we can say is, "This manifold works." Whether you are running a street car or all-out racecar, it has proven itself time and time again with 1/4 mile speeds at 180+ MPH. The STM Evo RS build set the bar in 2014 with it's 8.0 passes and we used the EXACT SAME manifold we sell to you!

Install Notes:

  • *This manifold leaves no room for an air filter, so if you're on the street and worried about rocks (and you should be!) it is wise to invest in a custom bumper cover. We've seen some beautiful, clear ABS plastic designs. But it's all up to you!
  • *This manifold REQUIRES a half-sized radiator kit. Check out the STM Small Radiator Kit.
  • *You MUST remove your A/C.
  • One of a kind and built to order.
  • Each manifold is hand built and unique, so the runner design may vary slightly from piece to piece. Accounting for fabrication time, our manifolds generally ship in 2 weeks.
  • Please note the ceramic coating will add 2 weeks to shipping time.
  • Don't forget your nuts! STM Exhaust Manifold Stud & Nut Kit.
