You can't just ask a vague question like that, specify your goals and other mods you plan to do.
Brace the **** out of that OBX mani, they are known to crack rather easily and frequently. If you can't weld, it is well worth it to take to local shop and have them weld on some braces for you.

hi sorry about my vagueness

I am wanting around 260-300bhp, i will not be forging it for now, this will come later, will be gettin it setup on emange with all req fueling mods.

The last user hasnt had any trouble with the manifold, seen pictres at all angles and its not been rewelded, i have a mate who does exhaust fabrications tho, ill get his to brace it up for me! Cant complain for 30 thought id give it a try!

thanks

probably a good candidate for a small t3/t4 47 or 50 trim.
