How is that different? It looks like a normal manifold to me. What type of improvement do you get from it.

Ok, I see the diff now. So for the second part of my question, what type of real world gain does it give? Dynos?

There was a fair amount of discussion about this in a thread on this forum about IM design last year sometime. You guys should read every single thread from last year to make sure you are caught up.

Sorry, I've lost track with all the PMs coming back and forth (the GB and all). Did I promise to sell you one?

If it's less than $200 I'd be interested.

Square top is the way to go n/a for sure. They should both offer similar gains in boost. Squaretop should be a bit cheaper i would think. I had about $500 in my honda mani.

Corksport is selling these for 475.

Would you rather have this than a custom one made or a BEGI?

BTW I mentioned this somewhere before but does anyone know if it is a different part number. A friend of mine that works for mazda asked me and I dont know. I've been looking around but I can not find out if it is a different part number.
