good work man, looks great. I would love to try something like some day. For now im just going to have to rock my FM manifold

edit: that is when i finally finish building my downpipe. The last month has been shot due to a winter term class.

Manifold looks great! I was just wondering though why you elected to angle up instead of down, seems it would make routing the downpipe easier if it were pointing down.

As for strength, I think whoever built the manifold for the infamous 600+hp Miata has the right idea - triangulation. Yours is short enough and from the looks of it, sturdy enough not to need it.

Well now that Its all done and what not, I would have done it lower if I had to do it again. You are right: the downpipe would be much easier and better flowing if it didnt have to go so high up. But its done and I'm not gonna worry about it. You can tell I lack planning/organization skills
