Adapters to flip manifolds E6
#1

Guys, I now have a new product for Ranger and Pinto guys who need to flip the E6. "Chip Flip" flip manifold adapters. These adapters allow you to flip manifold so that the turbo is in a forward location. Not only does it move the turbo forward but it sets manifold lower for better hood clearance. This is perfect item for rangers or pinto's that need more room by the firewall. This is a CNC item that has precise angles and cuts making each adapter identical. looks to be a hot seller. I think I'll be keeping them in stock

WOW.....Those look REALLY nice, <font color=navy>Chip</font>!! Much nicer than their "predecessors" (formerly sold on another forum) - and cheaper, too! :thumbup:

I would like to clarify that I meant lower than if you just flipped it using just stock manifold against head.

Has anyone used them on a second gen ranger to clear the HVAC box? I might be interested in them for that.

No personal experience, <font color=navy>Nate</font> - BUT.....the forerunners to these "Chip Flips" were made specifically for Rangers and marketed by a member of the <font color=navy>Turbo Ranger Forums</font> ( <font color=blue>LINK</font> ) - to do exactly what you want. Namely, to allow the turbo and DP to clear the HVAC box.

These appear to be made more elegantly and they mount the OE cast manifold in exactly the same manner. Soooo.....I see no reason why they wouldn't perform exactly the same. :dunno:

would you use two sets of gaskets for the install?

Gasket(s) aren't/weren't used by Ford, so they shouldn't be needed with the "Chip Flips", Mike. If there are minor irregularities in the surface of the manifold and you don't wanna have it resurfaced, a thin film of high-temp RTV will usually do the job.

And, NO.....RTV won't withstand 1,000+ degrees temperature by itself, but the head is an awfully-big (water-cooled) heatsink AND - even if it turns to powder - my experience has shown that it still seals. :dunno:
