No it was custom built by a shop I believe. Its made of mild steel and has been thermal coated.

If its got braces most likely you are going to have issues...just speaking from experience. None of our manifolds have braces and have not cracked. Hate to see you having to get it re welded over and over and over.

From the picture it looks to be thin walled exhaust tubing. That if thats the case its not going to hold up. Also the welds dont look good at all. Do you know if it was even back purged? What info do you have on it?


Again not talking crap just trying to save you some headaches down the road

Im going to be running a 3" DP and 3" pipe back to the HKS exhaust. I will have a E-cutout in that mid pipe so that when i want to go all out it will be straight 3" to the ground, but for highway and city driving it will be nice to not have to listen to the loud droning noise coming from a 3" exhaust. dont get me wrong i love the sound of 3" but when you have to listen to it on a 10 hour drive to a car show it gets pretty damm annoying lol.

just run a stock manifold with a $30 adapter. Otherwise youll have to modify your downpipe in a few weeks
