you mind as well install the z6 since you have it for free....the y8 is better but not worth the money if you allready have the z6 manifold

I've never seen any proof that the Y8 is better than the Z6. No one can prove any consistant gains from one to the other.

im just goin off of what the majority of people say about the 2 manifolds...and all i can say is that i ditched the y7 manifold for the y8 and its ALLOT better
