Default F/S: 1.8 SS Tubular Turbo Exhaust Manifold_ceramic coated

I bought this for my 1.8 biuld. but it looks like im staying N/A for a while. I want this gone. Its never been installed and has a brand new professional ceramic coating, inside and outside of the manifold. Its a stainless steel manifold.The coating was done by www.Xtremepeformancecoatings.com, in Oxnard, CA. They do ALL of Turbonetics coatings. I have proabaly done about $3000.00 in coatings throughout my car building time. haha they do awesome work.


$120.00 Shipped, OBO I want this GONE it comes with no hardware or gaskets, it fits the 94-97 1.8l miatas.

Yes it will look very pretty right before it cracks. Corky went to China to get the prototype of the S4 mani made there. Master craftsmen made him the prototype, a thing of beauty, Corky says lets build it! Thereafter the Chinese made the manifolds out of inferior steel, and they all cracked. Horrified Corky says I can't sell this crap! He went back to the states and paid American workers to build the S4 mani. Soon after, the Chinese flooded eBay with their inferior knock offs. As the Chinese don't recognize patents, Corky now competes with his own design, and worse because so many eBay mani failed, there is damage done to Cork's reputation. The reason these fail is inferior steel, and the lack of proper support to the manifold as in the actual S4 mani/downpipe who knows? Your mani might make it a while as it is, long enough for the buyer to get the real thing.

Brand new never used, brand new professional ceramic coating. Yes it is from Ebay, but I the welds are excellent quality, and the coating speaks for itself...

Actually, on 3 different Evos, all coated with the Xtreme black, 2000degree. And they have all lasted for going on 2 years now, at 26+psi..

And I never thought that the inside coating would stay, but it does and helps with exhaust flow..

Why does everyone seem to think its spray painted. It is not, it ia professionally ceramic coated with the Xtreme black, low gloss. Ive sold a number of items on miatatuebo.net.. Even sold me ceramic coated 1.6 turbo mani a member bought from me. The inside coating had not chipped and the outside was fine.... just from my experience.

The reasons you're being made fun of:

Not one person on this forum believes that and be happy you're not getting flamed worse for saying an ebay manifold won't fail on a street car. I'm actually surprised you aren't banned yet for trying to trick some noob into buying your ----, it took you 10 ------- posts to finally admit it was an ebay mani.
