Walton Motorsport BMW S55 Single Turbo G35 Turbo Kit

$8,542.00

Suitable for Right Hand Drive and Left Hand Drive Vehicles

There is a huge amount of F8X Platform M3 and M4s out on the roads and a huge amount of owners who want to get more power from their engines. The single turbo conversion method is to remove the miniature OEM turbos and replace them with a larger motorsport unit. Our manifold is designed to maximize flow, which lowers EGTs and takes some of the stress out of the engine, allowing it to make more power across the rev range. Our S55 Manifold allows the fitment of Garretts G35 series, and the most popular G35-1050 model. We chose to utilize the G-Series as they produce huge power in a tiny package. 

There’s no shortage of BMW S55 exhaust manifolds available. What sets the Walton Motorsport version apart from the competition is our construction methods.

THE KIT

The full BMW S55 Single turbo kit utilizes our manifold, with a 3.5″ Downpipe. a 4″ Intake pipe and boost pipe divided to meet an OEM fitment charge cooler. The hose kit contains Oil and Water lines for the Turbo, along with blanks for the unused oil feed/return ports. If using a custom build exhaust the downpipe is supplied with clamp and mating face of the V-Band.

Material Selection

  • First and foremost not all 304 Stainless steel is created equal. We carefully select the exact specification of the tube that we use. The use of a poor-quality tube can compromise the whole design. For Instance, exhaust manifolds experience repeated high-temperature cycles. In these situations, we have seen poor tubing split along the seam.
  • We design the head flanges in-house. However, we outsource the precision Fiber Laser Cutting. The use of more modern Fiber Laser cutting allows for increased accuracy over traditional laser cutting

Processes

      • Where the manifold meets the exhaust ports, Walton Motorsport’s process is to push the tubing through the head flange and TIG weld each side. This process is followed by a selection of finishing tools. We do this to create a smooth port for the gasses to freely flow through. Consequently, this process dramatically increases the durability of the manifold, rather than using the traditional method of welding the tube to the face of the flange. Moreover, our approach also solves the problem of an oval port needing to transition smoothly to a round tube. The stubs process, in short, helps increase power through the improved flow.
      • The collector we use is a custom billet merge collector. We proudly designed this collector in-house to exceed the performance of our previous market-leading hand-fabricated version. The freedom of design we have utilizing the complex 5-axis mill production process really allows us to be a step above the competition by allowing precision boost control on our unique wastegate ports. The machining process over traditional fabrication ensures that there is no danger of small fragments breaking off at high temperatures. These fragments will then make their way through your expensive turbo. We don’t need to tell you how bad that can be. And did we mention it’s machined in the UK?

LIFETIME WARRANTY

Bombproof? We haven’t found out yet. Our exhaust manifolds have been designed put up with some serious abuse though. We offer a lifetime warranty on our products as many do. However, we put a huge emphasis on the strength and durability of our products to stop them from failing. The biggest inconvenience when it comes to a failed manifold (providing none of it ends up inside your turbo or engine) is removing it for repair. By eliminating the failure in the first place, we can honestly say it would be extremely unlikely to experience a failure of our products. Consequently, We wouldn’t sleep well at night if our product failed and cost you a result
