What I'd personally would like to see is this mani off Ebay : ( http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/D16-...6QQihZ020QQcategoryZ33742QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem ). D16 CIVIC 1992-2000 "BLURR" TURBO MANIFOLD / DOWNPIPE 50mm Phat Runners - Not Rinky ****** Cracky Ho'...
LOL . Looks like a good deal, but too good to be true?
it looks sick, but i just don't know... I think i'm gonna go the drunkinmaster route and get one of those cast mani's that come from the DRAG kit... he said he hasn't had any boost creep issues...

OBX has been known for some fitment issues and are known to be just another eBay knockoff company for some. I've also noticed that the OBX Intake Manifold has worked for some with minor modifications...

Cast mani's FTW... Heard of complaints about boost creep too. But it comes from non-owners. Owners usually say they've had no problems. But does anyone actually have, and have been running for some time the knock-off Drag look-a-likes?

Nope. Custom Stainless is the best way to go...

So you guys are saying a cast manifold is the best choice?
yes and no.

longevity (sp?)= yes, they are the best bet.

flow wise= no, simply because the exhaust gas is moving at different speeds thought the manifold causing "conjestion", and possibly reversion if the motor out flows the turbo (i doubt this last one, but anything is possible).

I have an OBX Manifold, it is a/c and powersteering compatible! This thing is made with some thick metal, thing ways almost 50 pounds. The welds are not the best but appear to be sufficient as well as each runner is braced right by the flange. The ports would definately need some attention with a dremel cuz them bitches are lopsided haha. But anyways if you want one, i will sell you mine for 350 shipped, brand new in the box. Bills are kicking my ass so i gotta sell my turbo shit and take care of some debts. Let me know if your interested and i hope i helped in some way
