I am noticing differences in the 12v gen 1 and gen 2 manifolds and wondering which will be better for heater box clearance and exhaust pipe routing on the Fords. The 89 manifold puts the turbo up and at an angle far away from the motor. The later (gen2) manifolds look like they put the turbo directly under the manifold closer to the engine.

In theory, it looks like the gen 2 would give me more clearance or is it not worth the hassle of changing the manifold and rerouting the oil lines.

Thanks.

Crewcab,

I saw the post about the 87 you finished up, are those the mounts you were talking about?

Those look different from the ones that came with the 89 6BT I got. Mine look like the older dodge gasser mounts only bigger. I was planning on using those.

Thanks for the info on the manifolds. It looks like I don't have to spend any extra money on that.
