Please DO NOT Post In The General Section

From this point on until otherwise briefed, posting in the general section of Performance Tech is prohibited. The only thing to remain here will be the stickies. We would just delete this section, but that would cause unintended results.


The majority of the threads created can appropriately be placed in one of the Performance Tech sub-forums or Technical; and the posting of them here is detrimental to the activity of said forums. If you have any questions about where you need to place your thread PM me or one of the other mods.


For the most part you all have caught on without this post, but there have been a few habitual offenders that forced me to say this.


Everyone will get a couple of warnings from here on out, after that I just start deleting threads.

Again if you have any questions, PM me or one of the other mods.

    what is your setup that is allowing you to retain the strap?

    also the cast manifolds, are they real hard to drill ?

    you guys looking for aftermarket dsm manis should look at the evo gt mani.. its a cast mani so it will be more durable than the tubular ones. it comes with 4 new turbo bolts, a new 2 layer exhaust mani gasket, and 3 layer 7 cm turbo gasket, and all the studs for the exhaust mani.. nice piece for under $150. if anyone is interested i can take pics of mine..

The OBX's are excellent quality pieces. My buddy has his on the Eclipse and its held up for over a year.

    OBX has come a long way, for sure...for manifolds and stuff they can't be beat. Cams? LSD's? Not so much.

    Anyhoo that ramhorn is a nice manifold...and it's made for T3/T4s...damn...

The only problems I see are block clearance with the turbo, and if not that, maybe radiator clearance. But yeah, they work and are a great alternative

    EDIT: Redrilling is really tough. I'd look for a drill press on this one.

    yea everyone knows dsm manis fit with redrilling i was just puttin up a sight that has aftermarket ones cuz noobs are allways askin about turbo manis for f22s and no one ever mentions aftermarket dsm. i mostly posted this cuz one of them on there is a stock mani but ported and has an external wastegate flange. its the same one as stock but better, so it will def. fit
