Deciding on a turbo manifold. . . Cast style or tubular? I know enough to stay away from ebay junk like ccfab. . .

CAST!!!!

those tubulars are notorious for cracking. the cast will not fail you.

dont let people fool you with nonsense about WG placement. drunkinmaster is runing 20+psi with his WG placement exactly like that with no creep/spike issues

Cast manifold will be heavier. But it wont crack on you during stress. Alot more sturdy.

Anyone else catch this? Gave me a good laugh lol

I think you meant "ebay junk like ssauto" or "ebay junk like OBX". CCFAB isn't on eBay (as far as I know) and they've been a company trying to get back on the good side of people for quite some time now.

Cast is proven for good power but tubular will flow better which will give more hp than cast. Just don't buy anything but cast on eBay. Get a tubular from companies such as SpoolinPerformance, TurboGoods.com... etc...

The CCFAB dudeman screwed over a friend of mine.. so..

I'm definitely not going with him; sorry, I really don't want to get into details.

http://hermsfab.com - that looks decent. i'm going to have to take a look into this.

I'm useing the cast drag manifold. Having alot of problems with it because of where the wastegate sits.(Boost creeping!) I just bought a OBX on to where the wastegate sits in the middle. Hopefully It will work better?
