    Ahoy from the otherside of the pond!
    Going to buy an uprated exhaust manifold for a K04 from INA engineering over here in the US. Was thinking about bringing another one back if anyone would be interested?

    They extrude honed n ported an oem manifold then replicated them, they were made out of a stronger material so they won't crack as well as the walls being thicker. They've got a 40% increase in flow over oem.

    If its anything like the K03 one you will need a few anyway to replace them as they crack... not saying the K04 will, just that the K03 ones have... in 2 weeks!

    All cast mani's will crack eventually... even the one I have for my GT30 will at some point...

    Yeh I read the thread on scn the other day, someone else has got one n Sam said not to post pictures up for some reason. He sent me a couple pictures, not sure I should post them up though. It looks pretty much the same as an oem manifold.
    I leave on thursday night n he said he can get me 2 by thursday morning, IIRC he said he had about 15. He can also get them coated for an extra $100 each but won't be ready before I leave.

    Sorry but i wouldn't pay £400 for that.

    Still look very restrictive

    There are a few company's out there that are slowly working on performance ones

    CR Turbos
    JBS
    TSR

    To name three

    i hope it works out ok
    extrude hone of an already unreliable design is why i shelved the same idea... seemed flawed to make a cracking manifold thinner.

    as a basis to make a heavier walled, better cast material however with appropriately sized runners, would be a nice move.
    collector looks cleaner, would be nice to see port sides for id and consistency of bore

    good find
    it will undercut the jbs one even at £400, whenever the jbs one comes to be available to the masses

    Thats what I thought it was when I first saw the pics n was a bit sceptical. But then.........

    That's exactly what it is.....atleast I hope it is!


    Well I eventually got it for 399 USD which is £266, he gave one to me at that price as long as I gave him feedback on it, so I snapped him up on that right away. It will arrive tomorrow (thursday, as its still wednesday for me) fingers crossed as I leave tomorrow night (thursday night).
    Will take some pictures n post them up when I receive it.

    cool. it will be very interesting to see how it pans out..
    I *think* this is the manifold he is using as a basis for rhd tubro kits also, with adaptors.. If I understood his postings right.
