Red face Tell me what kind of manifold this is!?

Hello,

This is the manifold included in the turbo kit I have purchased, wondering if you guys think it is an ebay manifold, if you recognize it as a real manifold, or if it has been custom fabricated? Just looking to inform myself before I start to worry and end up buying a begi manifold!

looks like it might be a begi.

only one way to know: measure the wall thickness. who did you get it from?

I dont know man it doesnt look like a begi. Didnt begi use a 1 piece runners from start to finish?

Also didnt they have the little rectangles welded to the bottom side of the runners. Flip it around and see.

no, some of them got them and some didn't. probably a revision for the later ones

the other guess is its an ebay piece of junk that someone "re-inforced" with those tabs (which are pretty stupid and won't help anything actually).

It looks like a begi s4 but the welds don't appear to me to look as clean as those found on begi's website. Maybe op's pics are just lousy, but I call eBay mani.

I can't get any more pics for now as the manifold is a couple hours away, but the wall thickness seemed pretty thick, anyways it is getting put on the car either way for the meantime, I will keep an eye on it though!
