s/s exhaust manifold.

Hi Guys. It would appear that my exhaust manifold has got a hole and is slightly blowing, so i'm thinking of replacing it with a stainless steel one. I've seen that Japspeed sells one at pretty much half the price of anyone else, has anyone had any experience with these ones, or are they cheap because there pretty cr#p fit and quality? Also, are there any performance gains with the manifold, or it merely pretties up the engine bay? Cheers n Happy Xmas...

The cheaper ones tend to split. You can get them welded but they usually keep splitting.
If you get the uppipe make sure you get it matched to the turbo

Cheers for the input. I did a bit of research trying to find reviews n write-ups elsewhere and yep, your right, you certainly do get what you pay for and it looks like i'll be staying well clear of them...
