I've had mine on for three to four years now and have no cracking. I probably did a real good job when I cut the manifold to relieve the stress.
how do you reduce stress on the manifold? if you have pixs that'll be good thanks

Yes, I never finished b/c between Scott's FAQ and the BEGi S-kit, I probably will never get back to it, but hope that in it's half-finished form it helps a little:

Bringing this thread back up. Been a while on the thought to boost my car due to nursing school. The money i had for the kit that my parents were gonna order i decided to just pay for my books ahead of time and it was worth it. I got one and half semester to finish the program. Like the classes been getting easier im getting back im finally focused on boosting my car. What really sucked is i needed to buy more equipment for nursing equipment due to practice.
With mechanical work around my neighborhood on weekends its supporting the fundings for running turbo on my car. I also got regular job, but using those paychecks just in case for emergencies. So i been piecing up my own kit.
Coming monday ill have;
greddy turbo with etd racing manifold
what i have already is;
vortech fmu greddy standard is what i was told by seller
msd timing retard
greddy downpipe im planning on getting it modified by cutting of the flange and start from their
and intercooler from saab planning on placing it during the summer when i get 1.8 injectors in
Im concerned is i been reading up on couple posts on oil constrictors for turbos and i just keep seeing that they get them for T25. Wondering is one required for the greddy turbo?
For gauges im getting a simple boost gauge and innovate lc-1 sensor this weekend; however, is oil temp guage required?
thanks

You wont have to worry about oil temp with the low boost you will be running but definitely run synthetic. As a dealer I'm bias to Amsoil or course. You never left me any feed back for the MSD box.

I didn't run an oil restricter on mine and it was fine. I sold it to a friend and he never had any problems with it either. I was using a -4 AN feed. I think the kit I had is on its 4th or 5th car now.

Bringing this thread back

I saw yall said to run synthetic oil and to change it religiously every 3k miles.

Do you stick to the stock weight of oil when running a turbo?
Any new words on the manifold cracking, or is that history now?

5 psi will leave you with a hard on...

Sooner than later you'll be at 12 -15.

I said the same thing to my friends when boosted, only a conservative 8 psi stock, in less than a year was at 15 psi.

Nice necropost.

It's a slippery slope, once turbo'd. Mazpr is right - before you know it you're at the max of your ignition or internals. Some stop there, and some keep going. The money involved starts to become exponential, though.

My Greddy's been on since 2007 and hasn't cracked yet FWIW.
