That looks a lot like the manifold from the JDM version of the HKS turbo kit - used a 3 bolt turbo housing on a small TD04.
From the ones I've seen it's a pretty good mani and doesn't seem to crack - certainly the ones I've seen haven't at all after a LONG time!

I actualy bought it from craigslist from some shady guy who was the brother of some shady used car salesman who wouldnt shut the **** up about all the cool cars he had. I was not a member of this site yet, and was not too familiar with turbo stuff. I had a feeling I was not getting what he advertized, but the turbo felt good, so I bought It. It turns out the turbo needs a rebuild though.

I made relief cuts to the mani, because I thought it was a greddy. I can vouch for the fact that It does not crack. I drove around with my timing way to low for a while and the bitch glowed like it was about to melt. Seems to be fine though.

thanks, nice to finally know what I have

I hope you don't cause it to crack because you cut it!! Mine is over 10 years old and is crack free without relief cuts. Hope you didn't mess with the integrity of it. The exhaust housing is not the same as a 3000gt, yours is slightly larger for more flow. Upgrades are very limited and can be expensive.
