Keep the turbo.. just get a decent manifold for it.

Going FROM turbo to spray? That's just pointless, IMO.

Please do a search....we've been answering these SSautocrap questions too much recently. Going from turbo to all motor is a step down in my opinion.......jus get some quality parts to save yourself the trouble later.

that co. is shitty!!!! a buddy of mine has a h22 accord and bought a t3/t04 SS manifold from them.....well the manifold looked great but, when we bolted it on, the turbo wouldnt bolt up cause cuz it was hitting the block....if you pay attention to all the pics of car that have that maniflod bolted up the turbo sits on top, but this manifold my bud got it bolts on the bottom.....that co. SUCKS, they charged him a 15% restocking fee to send it back.....read his feed back all his neg. feed back is from turbo parts......

Actually my friend just got his turbo kit in from them and it looks like a really nice kit, the welds are very solid and the intercooler is HUGE.

Well you may be right, but OBX used to have horrible quality and now their products are as good or better than many of the more popular brands but are still much cheaper. Maybe SS got their shit straight and have improved the quality of their products.

OBX definitely did improve their quality from when they jus started out. They actually make an LSD that looks jus like quaife but i recently purchased a quaife cuz i didnt want to chance my tranny to OBX. SS has a long way to go .......i dont think theyll ever become a trusted brand of quality.

It doesn't happen over night though, horror stories pop up almost daily.....Even after 2 years of great quality i don't think that I'd ever buy from them. They have been shady from the start.
The old saying of "you get what you pay for" has never been more true. With that said I'm more then happy to pay a bit more for proven quality.
full-race stuff is expensive for a reason, and ssac is cheap for a reason.
I almost became a victim of ssac, thankfully I didn't. I remember a few people a while back were supporters/sponsors or ssac and swore by the product. Each of them has since replaced that maniflold with one that is of better quality due to failure of the ssac.

I almost became a victim myself because when i first started buying stuff for my first setup i was looking for the cheap way out.....but luckily they didnt make one for my car!

Yeah I know what you guys mean, I didn't know they were mainly ebay, just about all of the companies that do the majority of their sales on ebay are not quality that they claim.

i don't know if you guys did something wrong or if i did something wrong. perhaps i got lucky or you all were unlucky. i have had no problems with mine.

my tuner said he's only seen problems if you run external wastegate w/ the manifold.

yah but that means that you paid all that money and theres no flexiblity, what if your internal wastegate doesnt perform as you need it too and you have to upgrade to external, what then????
