    So it wouldn't be worth it 2 buy it? If not what would be a good manifold 2 go? I'm trying 2 stay away from the cast iron manifolds..

    Why? Do you not like how they look?

    And if you want something that will last, then spend some money and get something name brand...

    in the price point of the SSauto/ebay crap, you're only other option is a cast/log mani. anything else is going to cost significantly more money.

    The ssautochrome 1 I was looking at is 300 and looks way better made then the cheaper 100 dollar 1.. But I don't really like the cast 1s and edelbrock makes that 1.. I found some rev hard race manifold for around 500

    You're better off with a nice handbuilt log mani. If you are cheap enough to consider ssautochrome, your setup wouldn't benefit from a ramhorn because it won't require the flow capacity. What size turbo are you running?

    I say just go with a cast log, if it works does it matter what it looks like? That or just weld up the one you have now.

    How is a miniscule reduction of spool time worth hundreds of dollars more?

    besides ramhorns will crack, it a matter of when not if. Cast holds the heat much better and the welds are serious weak points. When you heat a metal (like welding) it anneals the metal which changes the molecular structure. Basically hardening the metal to the point that the heating and cooling will cause cracks. The cheaper they are the sooner they will crack.

    The thing is I didn't crack on any of the flanges it cracked on 1 of the actual runners.. So maybe I can re-weld?
