There good and so are the mini ram and full ram all have been on fast cars. The mini ram is to me the most bang for your buck they give decent mid to low range but still give you top end as well if you dd the car as well
Its a fad. Kinda like horn speakers on donks and just like hf manifolds everyone was using them! Then it was ssautochrome/xspower before we got wise. Then we moved onto making our own with whitey bends. After that you could buy a DIY kit for a log but the ramhorn came along and owned all. OF course we can't forget the miniram the medusa the wtf is that and the dohickey whatchmacallit. Unfortunatly those all bow down to the all mighty topmount god now until another creation comes along...the dual sidemount fog light "eat at the y" twin turbo manifold.
Bottom line, use whatever the hell your wallet can afford. They all have potential to make great numbers!
obx is like 1 step better than ebay knockoffs...more like a 1/4 step... dont waste your money on an obx if funds are short ebay cast mani has been proven to make ok power on the super cheap. otherwise go with a name you can trust like go-autoworks or rc autoworks. its better and CHEAPER to buy 1 slightly more expensive one than to buy two or three shit ones that keep breaking due to thin steel, shitty welds, and bad supports
While I have no problem believing that equal length runners with nice smooth bends will make power over a log manifold, I do find it hard to believe a top mount has any real benefits over a good rams horn manifold. There may be advantages/disadvantages to one over the other as far as turbo placement and piping goes, but you certainly don't need a top mount to have a fast D-seies. As far as quality goes, it's already been said. Spend the $$$ for the real deal:

Recently purchased a 95 Civic DX with 162,xxx miles on D15B7 engine and noticed the rings were burning oil like crazy. Which led me to thinking if I’m going to rebuild this thing then I might as well turbo it as well. This car is not my daily and my intentions are to get at least 7 pounds of...
I apologize if this has been covered before but I haven’t seen anyone with the same problem.
I have a mini me turbo setup. D16y5 block with y8 head. Stock internals with ARP headstuds boosting 12psi. Car is also dyno tuned and has a p28 with hondata s300. So the car has been fine for the past...
Turbo D16Y8 on a P28 with Crome with a freshly replaced head not able to hit the correct timing marks.
I set my crank to the singular mark by itself which I believe is TDC.
Then I set the camshaft sprocket to TDC and matched up the marks with the edge of the block.
Got the belt back on and...
