OK, this is my first post, and I'm sure this has been posted before but:

A) I tried searching, but the search function appears to be broken. I tried and advanced search, but came up with 'no posts'.

B) Archive stuff is often too old to be of any good.

So, here goes...I'm looking for a single T3 manifold for the 1jz in my Lexus GS300. So far, I've found a couple on ebay (stryder, and some guy out of Florida), the Wasabi piece, and a couple from Australia...the 6Boost, and a stainless piece from VPW.

This is basically a daily driver, and I'm really only looking for 350 ish reliable RWHP. I'm also doing modded USDM 2J cams, as well as whatever fuel mods and tuning will be required (haven't done all that research, yet).

I'm going with a turbonetics T3/T4 60 trim, .62ar BB turbo. It should be here in 3 weeks, or so. I'm guessing a manifold will take time to get, so I'm trying to tie that down next.

Long post short...what do you folks recommend for a single mani? I need something reliable (not prone to cracking). I'd probably even give up some performance in trade...like a cast or log manifold, if anyone makes one.

Any other tips on this build are welcomed, as well.

Thanks in advance,

Toby Johnson

Just grab a cheapie from ebay, cut the T4 flange off and weld on your T3 flange. Probably have to cut the WG assembly and re-do it, I've heard some of the folks had trouble with theirs.

Or, swap exhaust housings over to a T4+vband. What are the specs on the hot side?

Thanks...I've read other stuff about the China man manifold. The only one I can find on ebay though is the stryder. Anyone have a link for the chinamanifold, or the sellers name, or something?

As much trash talk as the stryder gets I think they are the shit. I have been running mine w/out a brace for 2 months now, no cracking or anything.
