Yes an equal length manifold would have all the exhaust pulses hitting the turbo at the same time, much better for getting spooled faster.

The proturbo m20 manifold is vey good example

i dont mean to sound like an ass but,that manifold needs a longer,straiter run into the turbo,my buddy is a turbo tech and im pretty sure that when you put a big turbo with very short runners ,when you hit the gas the exhaust gases wont be volumetrically efficient because there runing into each other,thus making the engine work against it self a bit.i dont mean to be a bummer,sorry.but i have to say your weld/fab skills are pretty damn good,nice piece!
