Yes, except not really. If I actually had anyone even mildly interested in the car, I would have fixed the manifold a long time ago. As it is, I don't even get emails or calls.

Nope. pipe. I had it flared to fit the flange. It cracked.

The only thing that sucks is that i have to cut and reweld my downpipe, and my charge pipe from the compressor outlet to the intercooler... which means i have to repaint the pipe too.. feh.
