    The ebay cast 4age manifolds are a copy of the HKS manifold, I used a genuine HKS manifold on my 20V turbo, I guess the chinese just copied it but used crap metal. The HKS cast manifolds have a high nickel content. If you shop around the genuine HKS manifold doesn't cost much more.

    the ebay ones are prone to cracking but this is easily fixed if you brace the manifold by welding a bracket to the engine bay to manifold

    I'm going to be running one, have no clearance issues with it. Finish wise it looks quite good, though the split pulse isn't right. You need to get a custom made dump (buy a flange and get an exhaust shop to weld you one up).

    ....or just buy a Kelway one and it will last forever and fit sweet for the turbo you want to run.
