XS Power are the ones making them and Relentless are just the middle men between the customer and XS. How i always understood it anyway.

xs power manifolds are cheaper than relentless but they make them why would the put another name on there product?

When Welly was helping sort out the issues of these manifolds originally he was talking direct to XS Power. Relentless took over in the end and developed the V2 and V3 to try and rectify the weaknesses of each version.

End of the day i wouldnt worry about it. They`re all as sh!t as eachother interms of fitment, quality and reliability but people just fit them for the price and gains they provide.

As tuffty said, XS are just the UK outlet, and they're a joke compared to Relentless in terms of sales and after care. Always go direct to source!

Of course it's genuine, why would it need to be welded on any more than that mate? Heat from welding distorts things, so the less welding the better. V1 and 2 didn't have any form of logo / ID on them at all.

Official word from Sam B to put this to bed...

Xspower usa, relentless and ssautochrome all have same business owners but keep the business separate. Xspower uk dont make anything, just distributor. Relentless and xspower usa do development of products. Relentless is vag based, xspower usa and ssautochrome are jap and usa cars mainly.

To summarise... XS Power USA and Relentless 'make' the kit, XS Power UK is an independent distributor and not anything to do with the XS Power USA and Relentless business other than it sells their products

Is the relentless manifold good for the k04 hybrid or is something else required. I've got both manifold and downpipe. But I was going to just get it mapped with that.

Now I want hybrid and rods I'm not going to get it fitted if something else is needed on my chase to 300bhp.
