Manifold is definately solid. But for $3k.. man. I'd rather have an HKS Manifold + GT2871R + 550's ans MS.

I like my HKS manifold, it's a good unit. I prefer side mount manifolds though.

It is good, stout, and cheap. Everything else sucks about it.

it may sit up high but everything fits find, the only downfall would be the downpipe fabracation you need to make. tight bends... but it works well.

Looks like the kit comes with a downpipe.

Seems to be a lot of money for what it is, of course I'm sure there's some brand name ****** out there that are willing to pay extra for the name.

That's why the HKS is usually written as HK$.
