The trifecta of fail. You've come to the right place.

Ebay manifold - garbage
Emanage blue - garbage
RC injectors - garbage

Check,
Check,
Check.

Yep. Do you happen to have a wbo2 sensor at least? Honestly though, the setup may run okay at the moment, but don't expect longevity. Especially at 10psi.

AEM and Innovate are both good. Innovate is preferred though.

The main fail is the manifold and the ecu though.

Although pretty that manifold will crack like an egg.

I mean **** the Begi mani that they copied has problems with cracking. If the non-ebay real version is known for early failure, I can only imagine how badly that thing will disintegrate.

By some. I prefer AEM. Never had an issue, and very simple to use.

LC1 offers faster response time and more exact reading. Not sure if the AEM also offers digital outputs but LC1 does. I guess there are 2 problems with innovate. 1st is it has to warm up and 2nd, you have to recalibrate it once when you install it however then it offers faster more accurate readings. That said i've never had a problem with my LC1

Not to get too far off topic, but I've personally never had any issues with the slower response time. Seems like I remember a thread with quite a few people having issues with the LC1.
