And no, the manifold is not the same.
Ours should not break. Nor will it vibrate and annoy you to death.

Why can't these Chinese bastards just use ******* mild steel instead of this junk stainless?? It'd cost the freaking same for them and it might actually make a longer lasting product!!!

You know I nearly bought one of these Ebay manifolds thinking if I added my own bracing to prevent cracking I could make it work. But I decided to go with a cast manifold for the durability (daily driver). After reading about all of the fit problems described above I am glad I did not go that route. Poorly fitting manifolds are a huge PIA IMO.

Hahaha. Ever notice the background of "ilovetacotaco"s pages? (He changed it!!) Used to be this animated looking cartoon that said "i love taco!" that blinked on and off..
