Looks like the Greddy manifold. Can't see how it could be any worse than the Greddy manifold, and people buy that one for ~$200, so...

It looks like a greddy mani with rattle can black applied, but I think mine has "greddy" embossed on top, which I didn't see on this one.

well if it's a knock off, don't expect it to be better. :gay:

it's been rumored that greddy had their foundry use a different alloy for their manis to eliminate their previous shortfall.

Anyway hopefully that mani plus a 15g and a BEGi d/p should be pretty good.

Going to use it with a t25g (s13) and greddy downpipe (with t25 flange welded on it...)
Running a modest 6psi.

As the greddy, i am going to make manifold cuts and good studs...(grade 8)

if that's the same manifold as the one SSAutoChrome sells, it's better used as a door stop. The iron used in the casting of the SSAutoChrome ones is poor quality. Primarialy the threads where the turbo mount up. After awhile the bolts will get loose. You can tighten all you want, and they'll come loose. You can even cross drill bolts and wiretie them in place. It will not matter because if you take the turbo off and look at the threads in the manifold, they are deteriorated...

And it doesn't matter if you use bolts, studs, or even get fancy $8 bolts that are a lot like anchor bolts. the threads are junk. Oh, you can also drill and tap hoping that if you do it carefully, the threads will still get f'ed up.

sorry to break the news.. Ask me how I know
