The ******* thing that pisses me off with the "deal of the day" is the fact that all the good **** gets sold right away,and the junk that nobody wants gets re-cycled constantly.

I really wanted one of those padded are rest too.

Make your own armrest with a small sheet of leather and some synthetic pillow material. I got everything at Walmart for maybe $10. I used Stealth97s go-by. Works well.

If that manifold had been for a 1.8, I would have bought it. Does that make me stupid?

I didn't think it was a bad deal. Just extract the friggin broken stud. I probably could have all that mani's flaws fixed inside of a half hour.

Steph, if you have any "blemished" manifolds that you'd like to liquidate for a similar rip off price, I'll take em to fix and resell.

I have blemished ones, but would not sell them. I would sell a used, in perfectly good condition, for $150.00. Honestly if it needed that much work, I would not sell it. But if I did, I'd probably price it for $30.00. The manifold is 10 years old.
