totally sorry i didn't tell you guys...it's the megan racing manifold.... my buddy told me to shoot them an email...maybe they will help with something like reimbursment or something, i mean, i didn't abuse the system or anything...downpipe is damn sturdy...just turbo manifold is shitty, i also found the runners to stick out inside the manifold...which goes to give me reason why before the crack it was already a tiny bit laggier than most T25 setups.... now i dont even hit 20lbs until 5000-6000RPM which is geyyy

I doubt they will, alot of people that have used that manifold have had it crack on them, its kinda shitty unless properly braced, even then, you never know.

and adjust your thread title so it's identifiable, like: Megan Manifold has more cracks than... (insert humor)

btw- everybody knows you CAN mod your thread title by double clicking it- right?

How did you not hear that? You really did not know there was a problem? Were your eyes tearing? Did you have to turn the radio up more than usual?

I don't think a brace can fix that.....kinda like "cant fix stupid"... "can't fix tin foil manifolds"

+1.... i think i'll be in the market for another manifold now...anyone have any idea which one would fit fairly okay with the megan racing dp? the d/p holds down pretty well compared to the turbo manifold
