So I have been looking for a turbo manifold for a budget build. I have been wanting to avoid the eBay route as most are well... you know. But I have found an affordable ram horn from a group called Top Speed Auto.



Price is $79.99. I've found a review about some of the other products they have for different cars. Some good, some needing a minor touch ups. Sanding to smooth some rough edges, nothing major.

It seems on the turbo manifold they welded in a reinforced bracket plate to keep them from cracking. It is also ported at each cylinder and inspected.

I am wondering if anyone has any experience with this or any of the companies parts.

p.s. manifolds and and catbacks you can cheap out on if on a budget. just don't rely on moving parts like turbos.

Well that is good to know. Yeah, I'm not cheaping out on the rotating parts. Except the Vitara pistons, but those have proven themselves, so I'm not too worried.

I was looking at some parts today, just random parts. I remember how parts would have fins or post to help dissipate heat. I was starting to wonder if welding some post would help with fanning out the heat to help prevent cracking. Do you think that'd help?
