Sorry i spend more time in my garage than on this forum ...you are correct i did not spend much time searching, but not to buy would have been stupid just on a busness angle...i can certinly sell fur more than i paid. I first joined this site to unload parts and possibly meet a few people who share my passion for driving racing and hands on modifing these little cars. and i have made quite a few people happy with money i saved them
Sold torsen swaps for under $500, 1.8 long block $50, trans $75 ect ect
Yet most of you still get more enjoyment teasing people on the internet than actually networking with People that may be Good to know and fun to drive and do events with.

So feel free to ban me as there is no hope for my ignorance...I'll be out driving the **** out of my car having fun and wont care WHEN my junk Ebay $36 manifold breaks il buy somthing else
And the personal integrity of the men on this site has been noted

Just as i will charge shipping on it if i sell
But even tho you all say it's crap and the reviews bla bla bla for the money spent i say it's worth it even if just a experiment to test the breaking point first hand
There are ignorant people that like to learn from their own mistakes regardless of how blatantly obvious the logic and feedback of others is. They are usually poor and have terrible cars because they waste all their time and money on sure-thing failure strategies.

The alternative is to spend all of 5 minutes researching the matter, figure out the truth, and save yourself not only $51, but hours and hours installing, fabricating a downpipe, etc etc etc everything included in putting together a hotside setup on a turbo application.

Its obvious which group you relate to. But different strokes for different folks I guess.

But then there is that getup of people who always manage to make things work no matter what....like when people didn't believe we put a rb25 in a cresseda and retro fit s15 suspention....or my lt1 rx7 with working ps ac that still handled.or a notchback in the 10s under 5k invested....but omfg not $51 lol....yeah i must be the poor ignorant type....and hours and hours of labor?? Do you work with your eyes closed? Hardly difficult to fab a dp.
Buy then again some people spend money others are craftsmen. And yes having somhing to start with and hold in my hand is worth less than 1hrs pay....I cab use it as a jig when it fails...or maybe just draw a template and relist it for $80....who cares.....Eather way I'm done with this Dick measuring contest

What makes you think we don't already know the breaking point of this manifold? Have you seen the ebay manifold sticky on this site?

What's sad is that everything you and other fail n00bs like you say is WORD FOR WORD the same stuff every time.

We're all just "haters". We all have nothing better to do than knock down people with silly pipe dreams.

If you're such a master fabricator that a dp is no sweat for you and takes only minutes, then why in the world are you buying this hunk of junk when you can easily fabricate a manifold for a couple hundred bux that won't fall apart in a day or two?

Oh yeah that's right cause you're full of it, just like every other n00b like you that got all bent outa shape cause we made fun of them for being silly.

Its not a measuring contest. You're following a recipe for disaster to a tee, and what's shocking is that you, and people like you are too ignorant to even explore the possibility that this is ignorant.

Its always the same story:
"I just want 150whp, it should hold up fine"
"I just need it to last a couple days, after that I'll fab up my own"
"I have a welder and will be able to repair it"
"I will just use it as a template and build my own"

The truth is, none of that ever happens. And if it ever does, its like 2 outa 100 people that actualy do it. They are a very rare exception. The signal to noise ratio trend is exponentially against you. Basically you have everything to prove and we have nothing to prove. Because we know better.

Never said that i can make a dp in minutes...nor am i a master fabricator buy yes i have made exhaust Dp and cat backs...no it's not hard...but yes i guess i am a noob at making a turbo manifold or even a turbo Miata.. that dont mean I'm a ignorant person.
But yes you talk like a ***** to people and regardless of your experiance with this particular application your aragance and condisending tone won't Get you far if you treat People that way. if you act this way on person you must find yourself in conflicting situations quite often....

I don't find myself in conflicting situations very often, because i tend to not associate myself with inferior people.

IMO its easier to make a manifold than a downpipe.

I don't think there are that mani BEGi versions of this that cracked. Am I wrong?
I've seen the threads and discussions, but there doesn't appear to be many reporting failure with the real deal when braced and all that.
