hi folks after some info here on the manifolds ebay has to offer, wondering if anyone has bought 1 and there thoughts on it.

I know you get quality with a price tag but there are some cheap mods that give the same performance as an expensive 1 so please no slating mearly asking for your opinions on them

These are the 2 in question more than likely the same seller under differnt names but you never know

well, I'm sure there's many other Nutzers who are using the same or similar manifolds from Ebay so no doubt you'll get some qualified replies.
All I'd say is that I've heard of various fitment issues with the ebay manifolds, mainly the fitment onto the studs on the block not being exact, the flange being warped etc etc.
Bear in mind that you may need to extend the O2 sensor wiring, and that it won't stay polished & shiny for very long, also don't believe the sellers Bhp figures as you'll never gain that uch power from just switching to an ebay manifold.
And have a look at the 2nd sellers feedback, the 1st seller "tuningpartsbay" I've used myself in the past with no issues.
