run all your stock stuff to start with. get the rest of the car up to scratch, THEN think about hotting it up

all the stainless steel ones are just for show, there made on like a production line so how can they be good hey, dont do it..

for a decent manifold it has to be like 4mm thick so it can hold the heat,

steamweld one up or keep stock..

you only want it for looks, so why not just get it acid dipped clean and shizz..

yep, the stainless ones were just a fashion craze.

Keep the stocker unless you desperately need to go high mount, or have plans to win autosalon. In which case you wouldn't use an Ebay one, and would need to find some $1000 Japanese one.

if you're gunna do a good conversion, do it right the first time and spend a little extra so u know you wont have dramas down the track. 6boost manifolds are about the best around, get onto kyle tell him what you want and u'll get what you pay for.
