Haha yeah my FF pfab mani cracked too.

The flange at the cylinder head is not fat enough and warps when it gets hot. So dismount it once and unless you machine the flange, it won't seal 100% ever again.
The threads holding the 4 turbo studs are just a little bit off, meaning that you can not mount the turbo without taking off the studs. VERY annoying!!
The T3 flange holding the turbo is welded in such a way that the turbo is 0,1mm off the vtec solenoid. This caused me to buy a skunk2 solenoid which is smaller, so I can acually fit a turbo blanket. And still, it's a pain in the ass to fit.

It's too much of a hassle to get other oil feed/drain & intercooler piping for me to switch exhaust manifolds... so I'll keep using this one. Otherwise, I'd buy another one.

Pang always posts pics about ''fab life''.... But I'm seriously wondering if this guy is a proffesional welder. His welds crack like crazy.
His customer service is great by the way. You can always send your manifold back to get it welded again. All the way from europe, this costs just 300$ back and forth, and just takes about a month or 2 I guess

Speaking to a manifold developer he stated that the reason why unequal length manifolds tend to crack is:

1) unequal weight, putting different stress on different parts of the manifold.

2) Different parts of the manifold heating and cooling at different temperatures so that expansion and contraction of different parts of the manifold occur.

Is this along the same lines as what you ordered? Or did you just order the manifold, and downpipe and IC setup separately?

I know you said you didn't buy the turbo though. Check out that dyno graph. :/ If you notice in some of their screen shots, they used the stock cat although I can't tell if they're using the stock exhaust.

Yes. I ordered a complete kit minus the turbo, manifold, wastegate and blow off valve.

For the price id love to see what custom set up one makes with this.

can see this being compared to buying a used Greddy Kit.

oil filter relocation required but not supplied?

No updates. Unfortunately not everyone is your friend. Im not sure what is going on with the kit. All i know is that his project has stalled. Sorry.
