I think thats a 2jz manifold. If you look at the flange its not 1jz. Also, the T4 flange isnt even a real flange, its jut a piece of metal with some ugly holes cut in it (probably warped). Plus the guy is in Bangkok.

SOMEONE SHOULD TEST THIS OUT THOUGH =]

I contacted some guy that bought one. I'm still waiting for him to tell me how it is. It's been a month already and the dude never got back to me. I first saw this manifold last month @ $270.00. Remember, the shipping is expensive.

BTW, check out what trev and chris are doing.

the guy quoted me 130 for shipping.....the only thing is that you would have to weld your own wastegate..........So like 490 for total...

my friend bought it, he also bought a t70 turbo, fitment is pretty good, but the welds are only ok.... he only bought it recently dunno how it will hold up. it might crack like all the other cheap honda manifolds on ebay.

well.. He said he would ship to canada 120 or 130 ish.

Still someone needs to test it... eaither way I think it looks pretty good yes it's a 2j mani prob pictured but i'm sure you'll get a 1jz one.. his feed back on them is pretty good actually

Most of those manifolds are 304SS. That is the weaker heat steel when it comes to direct heat sources (better material for catbacks as the heat has greatly dissapated) Those headers will tend to crack after time with the intense heat. The one Chris and I have been working on is a 321SS which is MUCH more heat resistant because it uses titanium as the stabilizer. I have one that is about finished (about one more week or so) and being a second piece (chris was the first) I am looking to get about 650.00 for it.

Great point eric!! I like to switch things up a bit. I would like to have the easy install of the HKS type kit, but I REALLY want a forward facing twin kit like the k26 setup!

Just a thought on this... Some people claim that the manifold will crack, it's probably shoddy, etc... I say this... For the price of that manifold, you can buy 4 of them for what you'd pay for one Trust header brand new.. 4 of them will likely outlast 1 Trust header. Just a thought though. Who knows.
