Plan is to tig in the areas that are missing then smooth them out. Also, remove the "extra". Still, what a bunch of crap. There is at least 10-20 hp there.



I knew there was a reason I was getting my own tig.



HKS can suck a " "

Nice crotch shot in the first pic there slugger.



I am trying to understand you're point. Is it the fact that the manifold seems to not match very well with the exhaust ports??



We had the same problem with my HKS setup and JR at Just Racing Fabrications (772-343-0510) cleaned up and matched up the ports.

Yep, its very apparent in person. Pics dont do it justice.



Im glad you liked my crotch Jim



One would think that since HKS has been making this for at least 10 years that it would fit properly. I knew there was a reason I like custom parts. When someones reputation is built on quality you get a good product.



I still need to get a boost controller and WG. I "WAS" thinking about getting HKS for both. Now im a little worried......

the undivided is designed around the fc and it's not suprising it's restrictive.



the divided fits very nicely and we didn't have to touch the manifold before we put in on.
