Not many people running them though they should be great quality, and you can run an external WG.
WHy do you ask if you already have an HKS?
I prefer BEGI and FM mani's only because you can get a downpipe easily for them whereas everything else will be custom. If you can get fab work done easily then go for it.

I have a JGS mani, and love it. Its thick as hell, and it mounts the turbo really far forward and up (Between cyl 1-2), leaves plenty of room for a 3" dp without cutting anything.

Actually, since it's pronounced "aych", the "an" is correct.

On topic...I was thinking about a JGS mani, till I came across a really good buy on a BEGI downpipe. Now I'm looking for a BEFI/FM mani.

I bought the weld-it-yourself kit from JGS. I'm running an internal wastegate but it would be easy to go back and fit it for an external wastegate.

The manifold is seriously overbuilt, everything is super thick and I doubt it will ever crack. I cut some relief flanges into it but I don't think they were necessary.

JGS is a great company, coming from the 240sx world I had bought from them before and have never had a bad experience with them. They have decent prices on oil line kits too.

bet this doesn't make you feel good:






this is what happens when you don't use a flex pipe and hardmount the DP to the tranny....



but then I fixed it...and didnt learn....

and then this happened:

there was a bracket welded there, that was attached to the tranny. it ripped off after 2 days on the track and the manifold cracked again. it's not smart to try to prevent the DP from hitting the k member by bolting it down tight......stress and heat are not your friend! :gay:

Thats the lesson kids. Use a flex pipe and make sure the welding is up to par.
