Default Casting Flaw on New Manifold

Does this need to be returned? Or is there enough surface area for a good seal? Thanks.

I'm not in a hurry. Do you think it won't seal properly?

To me that doesn't matter.

My guess is it would but it's only a guess.

Contact the seller.

Is that a BEGi Mani?

it wouldn't bother me, but BEGi should be responsible if you decide you want to exchange it.

i had a fitment issue with my Intercooler from them. they sent out a replacement before i sent back the one that didn't fit. it helps a lot with the time loss of getting a part with issues. I would call them Monday morning and work it out. They have been very good about support so far.

If he is not in a hurry why not? If the mani has casting issues there, maybe it has other casting issues not so obvious.

The manifold will seal just fine. There is plenty of space around the stud hole to make a seal.

If you want to exchange it, that is no problem. I can send a call tag for it.

Considering that's the bottom where it won't be seen and everything will seal just fine I wouldn't bother.

You won't have any problem with this but BEGI MUST replace it at free, if they want to name themselves SELLERS.
