Default Need advice IWG/EWG, Axial/Ramhorn

Street/Highway driven 2002 with fully built block.

Goals 300whp / strong torque curve / no track time / never crack-loosen reliability

I need to buy a manifold regardless and it will be a bottom mount as I have no more AC or PS. I have a 2860RS. I'll probably stay with that for the next 2-3 years if I'm satisfied at 300, I'm definitely not looking for 400.

I'm mostly sure that I'll go with an axial bottom mount and an EWG, but having doubts so I've come here. I've been reading and searching and reading again. My thoughts are the axial gives great street response and loses a bit way up top and the EWG keeps things limited in a very positive way.

I could save a lot of money keeping my IWG. I could also spend a bit more and get a Ramhorn bottom mount. These are my 2 dilemmas.

I did think about v-banding but with the cost it's a bit of a dream for a street car.

I know the engine can handle "all of it" in case I get boost spikes but a reliably set boost ceiling would be a very big plus.

Let me hear your thoughts please.

Do you even fab bro?
Reason I ask is, if you do, then v banding your stuff is cake.

Of all my skills, welding is not one. I need to acquire it though considering all the steel I play with.

seeing as you're from Edmonton, this would maybe be a good deal for you.
