    Megan Racing/M2 turbo exhaust manifolds?

    Anyone know anything about these? I know they're only ~$200 and you get what you pay for, but I wonder if they'd be any better than my old, stock, most-likely cracked manifolds? I've heard horror stories on how badly the OBX rear mani fits, and I wonder if these would be any better or not? Anyone running these? I know there's gotta be some other cheap bastards out there like me....

    If you were to buy a set and run new welds over the welds would that prevent cracking? Or is it hopeless?

    I know vr3.9 has had his welded several times. The metal is really thin.

    Ok, but no joyriding or boosting too high testing them out I don't think you could handle the power compared to the DSM
