I think you need to up the budget a bit if you want a decent one. Im looking a t a proper Spoon sports 4-2-1 manifold and it's going to be close to a grand for two parts then i have to fit the bugger :S

I'd say about 250-350 will get you a half decent one, unless you want to chance the £99 manifolds from ebay, but ive heard horror storys about some of them.

£400 is a good price for a decent manifold. Anything above £400 and your probably looking at track spec manifolds.

Yeah that's not a bad price really.

I went for one of the eBay jobs back when I didn't have any money. The fitment wasn't perfect but it was fine and air tight, and at the end of the day it's just metal piping :)

Aye but if anything were to go wrong, at least you can go back to the company that you bought it fae. A bit harder to do if its an ebay seller with no fixed address or no longer is on ebay.

True, but the amount I saved was well worth that risk. Plus there aren't many things that can go wrong with an exhaust manifold. It either fits, or it doesn't!

HKS are a bit over rated i think. How much money do you want to spend??

I bought a Greddy 4-2-1 stainless mani for £184 delivered + £40 VAT Brandnew and sealed from Ebay USA.

The cheaper you'll find will say "lightweight" in other words, THIN!Also the cheaper mani's will have as previously stated, poor welds and much more likely to crack.

A manifold will take ridiculous levels of heat, you dont want something too thin unless its titanium.

Check ebay USA possible DC sports for around £280 ish delivered abd VAT'TD!!!
