this has been up before.... haven't seen anyone get one and put a review up yet.

I know the previous 2nd gen stryder mani worked well. They are selling that as well....

what's funny is that they are knocking off Stryders knock offs!

I love this, though, because I couldn't hope to drop $1500 on a veilside unit. I may get one of these.

Are you sure they arent stryder's units ?
And where can you get a veilside for that cheap ?

it looks good i just wished the vacuum line ports were underneath the manifold not on top.
Drill and tap new ones on bottom and plug weld the tops and repolish it

i hope i find a veilside IM for 1500, i would buy it immediately and sell it for twice that! they usually go for at least 2500, they are discontinued!

the pic looks like stryders packing, but I don't know. Stryder is Thai, these guys are Japanese.....

Could be the same...

$1500 for the VS was just a throw out # - I cannot afford a VS shift knob, so never mind me even trying to buy a VS mani! :rofl:


I like the original stryder VS knockoff. I've sold a few of them and they are pretty nice. NO THEY ARENT AS NICE AS THE ORIGINAL so stop your farking nutswinging, but they ar 1/5 the price and do the exact same job.

you get what you pay for
It is entirely possible to buy a quality part and still get ripped off. The three grand or whatever the Veilside mani cost new is absolutely absurd and in no way represents the actual cost of making the manifold. Veilside is a low volume "boutique" company and abused that niche by selling a ridiculously priced manifold. Does it work well? Yes. Does it fit well? Yes. Does it make power? Yes, but you're still paying for the name more than anything else. Please don't bag on a manifold just because it's affordable, because I'll always be there to bag on you for blowing three grand on a piece of aluminum.
