    i would make good friends with a local tig welder...plan on that manifold cracking within a couple months. Seems like everyone on honda-tech that used one of those had it crack. :(

    But as for bracing- i would have some pieces of steel welded from the lower flange to the head flange, then if at all possible make a bracket from the turbo to the stock exhaust manifold mounting bracket near the bottom of the block

    good luck dude

    the meng/obx manifolds are notorious for cracking... possible reasons are use of cheap materials, poor construction, crappy quality control, etc... there is a reason those ss tubular manifolds are so cheap ;)

    that, and the weight of the turbo puts a lot of stress on the mounting bolts
