    i am boosting my 92 civic with a jdm d15b vtec and i am making a manifold for it.
    what material should i use for this task?

    it will be very simple and straight forward, once i find out wat material to use.

    Just a warning...... My manifold was SUS 321 stainless steel, and my buddy had one on his civic that was SUS 304 Hi-Grade Stainless. Both manifolds are cracked all the hell.

    You need to brace all the runners, then brace the turbo mounting surface. Bracing the turbo itself when its installed is a BIG +!!! :D

    true on the shitty ebay manifold. the XSPower manifold is made of 321 Stainless... or maybe 304 Stainless?? I cant really find anything about the pos.

    I also had braces all over... it broke the brace on the runners and also the brace from my turbo.

    they can SAY its made out of whatever they want

    the easyiest way to do it would be to find a hf manifold and use an adapter plate to bolt on the turbo. or just buy a log manifold for $200
