ok serious question time: how stupid or un-stupid would it be to buy something like this, then cut off 1 runner at a time and weld in proper weld els following the same design and retaining proper positioning/fitment/etc.

Just a random half drunken thought.

The tubular manifold says "Ha, you crack me up."

Perez LOL

Dliverance see post #13

18psi: Thats actually why I got this in the first place, not to cut the runners off and replace, but to build a simple jig and use new flanges. I can do whatever the hell I want with the runners and as long as the jig is sold the turbo should be pretty close to s4 placement.

If you are thinking about hillbillying it (and its not actually that bad of an idea just kind of a lot of work.) you could cut and replace but I don't know what type of material the flanges are but the head flange was really warped lol

Dam.

I heard blowing your intake welds was the only way to a ten second car.

Like I said earlier, I think the 6 year old chinese kid who welded this also does downpipes. you'd have to double check though on the intake because I don't know if they have enough aluminum cans to make the runners or not

This manifold replaces the need for a blow off valve. There's no excess pressure, AND it probably still goes "whooooosh"! hahaha!

You first. Re-install header, insert as many individuals in your friend group or family as possible, and just stomp on the accelerator (don't shift, just ping off the rev limiter). Give results.

Because I unfortunately see it happen all the time at auto-X events. People come out clueless about their car (Corvette drivers, usually), drive it on the track, stomp on the accelerator, then spin out, nearly taking out all of the cones and/or landmarks nearby. At the New Orleans track events by Zephyr stadium, there's light posts, and this guy with a 1996 Corvette drove out there and nearly wrapped his car around the pole (which might I add had a solid CONCRETE re-enforced base!). We all just watched in horror as he missed it by less than a foot. Let's just say he's probably not going to be back again.
