    V3 has gussets between runners on teh collectors, and the pipe runs are slightly different with less joins but you'd have to be an ultra geek to spot that.

    At the end of the day whichever version of the manifold you get,its worth getting it re-welded anyway.I got a v2 to fit but I doubt there is much difference apart from fitting

    The V3 is a different animal altogether and with the thicker walled tubing should be fine... no bad reports yet i dont think..

    well because I knew the v3 is thicker and I've already had to weld up my v1 downpipe that I got from xspower because it cracked
