Default WTB: 1.8 Turbo Manifold

I'm in need of a 1.8 Turbo manifold pronto. Let me know what you've got before I drop my $$$ on Bell - didn't see anything recent in FS sadly.

You gave us 7 hours, exactly when most people are at work, what'd you expect?

Genuine question: why'd you go with bell over FM?

Needed it by a certain date. Paid too much for shipping on it imo.

Cheaper. Got a super-awesome deal on a 1.8, just needed a mani. Catch is that I needed it before I lose access to a shop to throw everything in and get it going.

Lulz. It appears I got trolled: FM's default 1.8 turbo manifold is the same price as BEGi's - but they list the ceramic coated one by default for price on the 1.8 vs. listing the normal manifold for the 1.6.

Since it appears BEGi completely missed the ship date by a wide margin, I'm looking to buy a 1.8 manifold again.

Need it pronto as mentioned above. Let me know what you got guys - it's the only thing keeping me from having a running 1.8 swap!

I'd go with either of them in a heartbeat if I didn't need it in the timeframe I do (Read: Sooner the better.)

I'm starting to seriously consider just eBaying the cheapest mani I can get just to get me running.

manifold design dictates downpipe design and turbo placement. unless you later plan to have them replicate the knockoff with quality stuff to retain configuration
