Utilizing exotic materials and advanced manufacturing techniques, the latest BBi Porsche 997.2 Turbo exhaust manifold is made from Inconel 625 using an investment casting process and features optimized equal exhaust runner lengths and true spiked merge collectors. This zero-compromise exhaust system utilizes the highest level of engineering and quality of materials typically reserved for top tier level motorsports. Design & Performance Gains The factory headers on the 997.2 Turbo suffers from a bottleneck in the system that we have completely eliminated with our Inconel exhaust manifolds. To improve upon the factory headers, we applied proven fundamental theories, 3D Modeling and Computational Fluid Dynamics software to design our merge collectors. This scientific approach has enabled us to engineer optimum tube lengths and tube volume. The true spiked merge collector design combines high flow and high velocity that raises the engine’s torque curve while the equal length runners provide evenly-spaced exhaust pulses to the turbine. The thick Inconel material also provides excellent heat retention characteristics, allowing more exhaust energy to be directed to the turbo. As a result, performance gains will be seen everywhere throughout the power curve and turbo lag will be substantially reduced while transient response is greatly improved. This equals quicker boost response and more torque from lower revs. In the mid-range and top end, you can expect big horsepower gains thanks to a more efficient system and less boost taper. Inconel 625 Super Alloy vs Stainless Steel Where cost is no object, BBi chose Inconel 625 nickel-based super alloy as a material of choice rather than stainless steel for its extraordinary properties. It’s superior thermal fatigue strength, anti-corrosion and heat resistance properties makes it the most desirable material for extreme applications such as gas turbine blades and nuclear reactor components. For high performance turbo applications, exhaust gas temperatures (EGT) can exceed 1400° F, which is beyond the service temperatures of many grades of stainless steel. This leaves Inconel 625 as the ideal choice of material and its benefits fully justify the higher costs. Inconel retains 75% of its room temperature strength at 1200f, and be able to withstand temperatures in excess of 1,800 degrees while also offering half the coefficient of thermal expansion compared to stainless steel. Unlike stainless steel, it will be able withstand extreme temperature changes without expanding, contracting, creeping, or cracking. For these reasons, Inconel is the best suited material for exhaust systems while traditional stainless headers using thin walled tubing welded together are prone to failure. Investment vs Sand Casting To produce our complex design, advanced manufacturing techniques are required. BBi opted to use the investment casting process to manufacture the BBI Inconel Exhaust Manifolds instead of the sand casting process. In comparison to sand casting, investment casting is a much more expensive and slower manufacturing process that is only used for low-volume production where higher tolerances and intricate designs are required. Moreover, investment casting provides reliable process controls and repeatability that are maintained from casting to casting to ensure total quality control. As a result, investment casting provides the design freedom to cast complex shapes for optimum flow and achieve the smoothest runners. These manifolds are a great bolt-on addition to any build, whether you’re keeping your stock turbos or building an engine producing quadruple digit HP figures. This is the last manifold you will ever need, period. Confident that they are immensely strong and resilient, BBI offers a lifetime warranty on the manifolds to the original purchaser against defects or failure.

The Bulletproof Automotive website contains many thousands of products purchased in multiple different currencies. All of the prices are entered manually and accurately at the time of entry. Due to the consistently fluctuating international exchange rates, at times prices may not be able to be honored at their original intended rate. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, unfortunately our website is unable to compensate dynamically for what can at times be volatile changes in the cost of items due to currency values fluctuating, changes in prices from suppliers, changes in shipping and import duties, and other factors. Rest assured that any order you place on line will be at zero risk to you in this area. If in the event your order cannot be fulfilled at the original intended website price we will offer you a 100% refund, no questions asked. We will continue to do our best to maintain updated prices and we will always continue to offer our price match guarantees as well to ensure our prices are always the best for you. In short, prices may change without notice. It is always advised to give us a call prior to placing your order online to confirm availability and to confirm current pricing.
Items that are in stock in the US, either at Bulletproof’s warehouse or at a supplier’s warehouse, are generally delivered within 7-10 days. Special order items from overseas take considerably longer. As a courtesy Bulletproof offers delivery estimates to our customers which take into consideration manufacturer availability and shipping schedule. These estimates represent our best guess based on previous orders from the manufacturer and do not in any way imply a guaranteed delivery window. Many manufacturers work in a “just in time” inventory system and often take 2-20+ weeks to produce an item once an order is submitted. All deliverable items are then sent to our Japanese warehouse. Bulletproof ships a minimum of one full ocean freight container every month from Japan, oftentimes more than one a month. Ocean freight takes an average of 4 weeks. Typically it breaks down to one week in Japan for paperwork and customs, two weeks by boat and one week in US customs/clearance. Due to the wide number of variables between manufacturer and shipping schedules, delivery estimates are simply just that – estimates. We attempt to estimate conservatively and we usually deliver faster than our estimates suggest. It is not Bulletproof’s policy to guarantee delivery time of any special order item, this is impossible for us to do. By ordering you acknowledge that there is no required delivery ETA and an order may not be canceled or altered due to manufacturing or shipping delays, all ETA’s are provided as a best guess only.

We do pricing a little differently on our JDM brands and we believe in making things simple and clear. No hidden fees or surcharges. Every price you see includes the shipping cost to our office in Los Angeles, California and all the associated taxes/duties/fees for bringing the products into the US. The only shipping you ever pay is from our facility in the US to your location. Be wary of resellers that don’t include the cost of international shipping in their pricing on JDM parts. While we believe we’ll always have the lowest all-in price on JDM products, we offer a price match guarantee for all authentic parts purchased from authorized dealers as well. For many international customers, it’s much more affordable to ship from the USA than from Japan directly, as the air freight and ocean freight costs are typically much less. However, for customers looking to ship directly from Japan outside of North America, or domestically in Japan, we can provide pricing specifically for that scenario. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any pricing questions or concerns. Please email us at [email protected] with any inquiries.
