Default Manifold question.

Has anyone used this manifold before? It doesn't give to many details about it.

Yes. It works great, is super reliable and flows way better than a ramhorn or absurdflow or anything by BEGi, Fm, or Artech.
Not much to say about details aside from every one of them being made of stainless steel of the highest quality, welded by professional welders, and ported out for maximum flow.
Definitely get it. Top notch quality. Will never break.

That's what I was thinking. Best manifold in the world and only for 110 bucks. What a deal I found lol.

They are not giving you any details on it as its a unique part with secret details. You ever played NFS underground? You know those unique parts you cant get anywhere yet they increase your performance by a lot? Well this is one of them.

alot here have used it. its good for the first 3000 miles then will crack. BUT

others here like Magnamx5 have used it with success by adding bracing to support the weight of the turbo and manifold.

Or go with BEGi log cast manifold. wont ever have to worry about cracking

Yay,some real results!!! I'm not going to buy this manifold but was wondering if anyone had used it before. I figured it was cheap so someone had to be a guinea pig before.

It's a piece of donkey poop. I bought one many years ago and regret it. Stick with ARtech, absurd, begi, fm, hks, and to a lesser extent, greddy.
