Opposed to an ARtech FM-replacement manifold?

I value reliability against cracking over an additionaly 5% power. Am aiming for 270-300 whp with disco potato.

Ok, sounds good. Don't know if Abe's stuff would crack, but understandable. I think I have an FMII manifold as well. But it needs to be recoated. I don't know about the turbine outlet, but I have the 2.5" Downpipe for the manifold. I'll have to find the pieces.

There have been Abe manifolds that cracked, apparently.

FM"s turbine outlet is the top part of their downpipe:

Correct, I think I have the downpipe, not 100% on the turbine outlet. I'll have to look around. Never heard of abe's manifold cracking, but so be it. Mine is ceramic coated, and looks awesome even after a few thousand miles.

I'll dig out the FM stuff later this week when I'm home.

Cheers,
Nick

Lol, what are the chances that abe is your best bet for a used FM turbo elbow. He has one for sell. He gave me a quote for just the elbow a couple weeks ago so he was willing to split the DP if he still has the items. Hit him up.
