    My turbo manifold is cracked and I'm looking to get a new one. I know I should spend alot and get a good manifold... but what is the best, cheap manifold? I was looking on ebay and found a few different designs.

    This is one like I have installed on my car

    ... and it has alot of cracks in it. I've had it tig welded a few times to patch the holes, but it keeps cracking.

    Here are the ones I found on ebay.


    This one looks like the RevHard "Log Style" manifold.

    Does anyone have these manifolds? I dont want to buy another manifold that is going to crack like my XSPower manifold.

    Thanks,
    David

    I've been googling all night and found this:

    I'm leaning towards the cast iron... log style manifold

    [​IMG]

    But I read this post @ Welcome to Team Integra! - Team Integra

    Code:
    [U]Cast Iron[/U]
    Arguably the easiest material for mass production, when produced in volume cast iron makes a good deal of sense. However, due to the necessity of molds for its production, it is not appropriate for both custom applications and complex designs. [B]Unfortunately, due to its high temperature properties, it has a tendency to crack after continuous (street) use.[/B]
    
    So... I found another manifold
    [​IMG]

    This manifold has SUS321 stainless steel, which is the same grade steel used for the cracked XSPower manifold I have now.

    I'm stuck! and confused.... :confused:

    The fact that most OEM manifolds are log cast iron should give you some indication of it's wear properties. In fact, for longevity I would take a cast iron log manifold over a tubular any day of the week--with tubulars you really do get what you pay for.
