I'm not sure why you don't have more cats.
Have one on me.

I looks like you flipped a eBay manifold upside down.

No eBay **** here. Local shop that does top of the line work on drag/drift/track cars. They polish everything, and all their systems look great years after. I've checked many of their cars before deciding to go there. V-band ALL the things of course.

The single piece runners are what made me think eBay. I did not really think Reverant would go with eBay. I just don't see many shops building off manifolds not using weld el's. Or they did some damn good polishing of the welds.

Yup, they are polished THAT good. And no, they don't crack.

I don't even want to know what they charged you for that thing. Can we get some other pictures of the manifold?

Quad EGTs only I'm afraid. No room for my quad wideband setup.

No dyno yet. There are lots of things I still need to install first. Injectors, fuel lines, pumps, W/I, intake, etc.

In for all the knowledges that will be forthcoming from the Greek Goddess. (I wish I could find the original post where Braineack dubbed Reverant such).
And a given. Much excite.
