i think they're talking about two pieces of metal on either side that brace the manifold and supposedly keep it from cracking under stress.Ill run it by him. What clips, where r they supposed to be?
I had a HKS knockoff bov on my last setup. Within a few weeks it shit the bed and caused compressor surge on my Garrett turbo and blew the seals out of it. Because of that I will never run an ebay bov or wastegate on any of my setups again.
But if your going to use the ebay stuff, at least spend the extra $ and buy it new. Its not going to last very long if its used.
