Interesting manifold there, unusual design...

Price seems good considering its a good looking fairmont and alot of hard work has being done, but expect to to pay the same money again to finish off the turbo job. Hopefully he hasnt been running it into detonation too much or the motor will be close to giving up.

Its definatly worth considering... and best of all it has the QLD transport engineers pass on it

Very bizarro manifold!
It is the manifold isn't it?
I thought it could be a heat shield too, but it does look like the primarys are welded into it...

You'd think it'd be a bit on the laggy side.
Exhaust gases having to build up in the plenum before being forced through the turbine.
If you did get it, I'd consider switching to a more orthodox log style.

Not sure if its the same dude. Maddog was from Perth from memory but thats not to say he was telling fibs.

hey there it could be the same guy cause I asked him about snort perf kits & he said that he did not trust them or him.. :oops:

Yeah that manifold looks a bit wierd. But it is cheap. He said all it needs is a fuel pump & FMIC and it would be sweet..

Cheers
