i was a bit reluctant to post this up as i don't want the price to get jacked up if it is o.k. mick webb said he often replaced the explorer manifold with these with improved results. just after some second opinions.

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... L:RTQ:AU:1

any idea on freight cost to adelaide anyone?

This is what about the Victor (start on page one if you want too)

http://www.mustang50magazine.com/techar ... ndex4.html

Useless under 6500rpm with power & torque lost all over the rev range, & this was on a 347.

all i'm wanting to know is if the one for sale is better than an explorer one like the seller says it is. down the track i will be looking at doing heads and intake and was looking at doing what everyone does and getting gt40p's and explorer setup. came accross this manifold at a fraction of the cost of an explorer. will it do as good or better job or should i keep saving and get the explorer one.

Go for it. You'll lose bottom end torque with anything bigger.

Damn, that went cheap, considering I sold my old performer (used) for about the same price, and some turkeys want over 500 for their 2nd hand explorers.

The performer kicks a** over the explorer's as well.

RPMII is the only way to go, no noticable loss of bottom end torque, and much stronger mid and top end
