Default Direct replacement to Greddy manifold

Hey... I've been searching all over the forum since I registered for information about that *"!*% greddy manifold. I just bought a 1990 Roadster with a greddy kit with fmic. About a week after, I started hearing an exhaust leak and found out about the crack and how (on this forum) they just all do it..

EVERY thread (they're quite old) mentions the ETD manifold as a replacement... Are they still alive? The site seems down since may... I found the BEGI manifolds, some ebay ones, etc... None of them seems to be a DIRECT replacement to the greddy one... They all have a curved flange, while the greddy one is straight up...

Could someone please help me find some model (new/used) that will fit there, and problem solved?

Thanks a lot... (flaming suit on)

yeah they dont appear to offer any manifolds anymore.

You may want to see if artech (site sponsor) could maybe make a replica for you.

Thanks, I'll take a look. Would this one fit? It seems to be straight up and "better" than ebay ones... but no year, no fitment chart, etc...

It's a t25/t28 manifold, so it's not going to work with the greddy turbo.

That is definitely not an HKS copy. My HKS has the outlet centered between cyls 2 and 3.

Send them a request for a larger picture or a drawing. It certainly looks like my GReddy.

Did that yesterday... no answer yet.. Would be cool.. Can't find anything else online... Got a friend selling a full engine/tranny/turbo kit, but don't want to buy the whole thing just for the manifold...

And yes, it surely does look like a greddy one...

Interesting!

I'm also looking for a new one.

My manifold seems to be growing in width, so its getting fixed on the studs, weird...
This is the second time this happens, first time i had to drill the holes bigger to fit again.

So I stay busy until my studs break, I'm afraid

You mean this Artech?

There is too little information on this site about the manifold, so i have sent them an email, and still waiting for a response of them, maybe i'm too impatient..
