that design has been known to crack, if you are going that route why not stick with the stock manifold and change the flange a bit.

I think it looks good as long as the clearence works out.It looks like it is braced well and should take care of the cracking the stock one does not have that. the only bad I can think of would be difficult for somone to add an external wastegate. but that said if you can make a manifold like that from scratch it would not be difficuld to add one .. Mostly I like the brace it's verry similar to what I was thinking of for modifieng a stock header.good to see somthing in steel instead of thoughts

the stock manifold never had 5-20lbs of turbo hanging off it either.

if this manifold is done correctly, it is by far one of the best flowing you can make. *note, i said ONE of the best*

also by the looks of that manifold i can't see any supports on it to keep it from cracking. then again its also not finished, but there is numerous ways to do so.

ill post up a pic of my ram horn manifold when its finished. i doing it as a little project for a friend? eh pete

I emailed them earlier and the manifold will have braces on it.They run this style manifold on their Mazda,Honda and Mitsh. kits.
