Angry Help! Procharger Build, Manifold Misery

I was suppose to be datalogging my Procharged SVT today. Instead I went to the shop yesterday (friday) where I was having my kit installed I was told that during an accidental turn key (prior to loading the start-up tune from Tom) that the manifold cracked. FML. So now I have to wait until tuesday for a new manifold to come in and for them to install. The shop was very apologetic and is paying for the new mani and install. Heres my questions.

1. The shop is paying for a new stock manifold, but they suggested that it may be a good time to upgrade, so they offered to put how ever much the stock manifold cost towards me buying one of my choice. Is this a good option or should I just stick with the stock one?

2. What are the chances that the shop damaged more than just the manifold with the accidental start?

Any input would be helpful. And I am going to post up the belt size I an using with the overdrive pulley soon, I forget to get the size yesterday, I was still in shock that I was going to be out my car another week

Check the compression.....

And stick with the svt header. There is no "upgrade". Its the best choice out there.

Usually cracking the intake manifold is a result of incorrect timing....it usually means more is damaged. Hard to tell, though.

This shop sounds like a joke...I don't care WHAT is holding the intake manifold on. It should never pop off and crack by just starting up the car.
