Yeah doesn't look to good, but I could be wrong, how the hell does it bolt on, the ebay page didn't open properly for me.

For impartial feedback about the manifold ask 302XLS from fordforums.com.au he'll tell you how real "under performing" it is...

There wasn't any noticeable real world torque drop despite sam's precise scientific guestimations. Again don't take my word for ask 302XLS.

And before people jump to conclusions and say this his a mate of mine you'd be wrong as his just an ordinary ebay customer.

That champagne AU got the manifold and piping silicon piping extreamly cheap! Try $600 bucks, installed!!! Because he looked after us by offering his car as a development vehicle. He didn't experience an massive gains, because his still running the standard maf which i told him he needs to change to get the most out of this manifold, plus his still on the "running in" tune after 7 months...

Got pretty much reamed on this ford manifold given the 100s of man hours put into developing (including the use of computational fluid dynamics), tooling, making them etc. only to have sold 4 :(

We though about making them overseas because people really take for granted how much skilled labor is, or the amount of work involved in making these manifolds (about 20-30 hours each!). But better off pulling the pin as there are better products that need developing, like our new centrifugal supercharger kits :) We'll be doing a boss 260 in about 4 to 6 weeks. Need to develop kits for LS1's, 5L's and eco's first. Already developed a kit for the non eco 6's which goes great :D

Best part is the retail price of each kit will be around the 3g mark (plus fueling and tune requirements) :) Made locally, comes with compressor maps so you'll know exact how to go about sizing the bloody thing :) Design registered you'll only be able to get them from us. So yeah keep an eye out for them :)

Cheers
Steve

I dont know why they use the explorer base. They are far from the best flowing or balance lower on the market. Especially runner no. 5

I'm not going to go into the pitfall of the other manifolds on the market again as you guys can read up about in the previous link that Sam gave. As great as they are they're not going to be made anymore (thank god! lol)

Valve for money you can't go past boost :)
