ok... at the start of yr i purchased a turbo manifold (log) off e-bay... from someone (ozpsiperforamnce) and in the middle of the ebay page it had -Boosted Roo- and after i installed the manifold....
approx 4hrs driving (normal) the manifold cracked...i sent it back and they reapired it and sent it back out to me...
at this stg i was getting the XTC ems From Nick installed... (manifold was put bac on) nick stated car up and after a few start ups later it cracked again, then nick took it back out and welded the cracked up... put it back on and what now the head flage was FU%ked...was leaking from cyl 6 so i got nick to do a quick road tune for the ecu and drove it home.
i pulled it off and sent the manifold and they said we are awaiting for the new 12mm head plate and its been over 1.5 months and no new and they will not answer phone call...and they have not sent my manifold back....

so i was told that Ozpsiperofrmance+ Boosted Roo= Snort perforamnce? so i really dont kno what to do and ideas?

What is the manifold material? If it is a stainless one they may have used the worng filler wire to weld it.

Most stainless that is used with heat properties is grade 304. If they used a 316 or 316L wire (marine grade) they will experience cracking very soon. I'd be getting my money back and not getting another as apparently it is a common problem.

we are located in albury/wodonga not bendigo or china for that matter

the manifold in question is not a snort performance manifold, the person in question worked for us for some time ( 2 years ago ) but is in no-way part of our buisness

we have contacted fordmods team for details regarding sponsership, so in future you can ask your questions direct , regards geoff carter

we build log manifolds by request of our customers only, in most cases customers prefer the tuned length style as the price is only 300.00 difference
