Default Help identifying this 1.6L cast manifold?

It's pretty heavy and seems nice and thick, but I can't figure out who made it... Is it just a higher quality ebay manifold or something?

Sure looks like a casting to me. The transitions are smoother and more gradual than any welded manifold I've ever seen.


Can't help on the ID, though.

That is a VERY rare HKS B6 turbo manifold. It's T2 flanged.

If you don't want it, I'll gladly take it off your hands. I'm serious. Paypal ready.

No, it's cast iron.
