The pipes aren't a single piece like a cast manifold so there is room for expansion and bending.

So any new opinions, I hope to be installing it over the next few days. (BEGI sent me the re-done custom downpipe)

I think M-Tuned/ETD has made their experience clear enough and us message board weenies haven't seen anything with which to disagree.

Just install and enjoy. Be sure to share the results! I for one, have been following your experience to see how it compares to the AVO/BEGi saga.

I haven't checked for cracks in a year or two.

I've had two ETD shorty manifolds.

My first one with cut flanges cracked often.

My second one without cut flanges has twice the mileage and has yet to crack.

Based on the above experience, I know what I'll do if I ever get another.

What's are the 2 worst smells in the world?

A shithouse on a tuna boat, and an anchovy's *****.

That manifold looks pretty solid to me. Nice. Is that basically weld ells for bends?
