well the manifold came and I eagerly un-packaged it on the weekend. It was a mixed impression, but overall im happy.
came with gaskets
ports were well sized - I will not have to port the manifold to mate it to my 2.3 head, as they are bigger than the 2.3 ports as-is
they used solar flux inside while welding it, so I guess at least a little care was used.
overall good fitment on my spare head/motor
where the primaries meet up to the 'log' part is rough and ideally one would clean this up before installation, to allow better flow. #1 runner is perfect though
I am not going to install it onto my car quite yet, as ill wait until my 2.3 head goes on or I port my existing head. My 900 is my only functioning car at the moment so I dont want to mess things up for myself.
Before installing it, I will spend some time on the flanges and on the inside making it perfect and smooth, as every little bit can help. Ill also measure the volume compared to the factory cast steel as im curious for myself. I removed substantial material from the inside of my factory manifold already (egr bung as well)
