I bought this manifold a while ago to use it on my motor but ended up going with a custom made manifold that positions the turbo side ways.
A lot of people are scared of these manifolds because when they were first made, the exhaust flange was welded upside down as you can see in the pictures that is not an issue with this one. I bought this for almost 500.00 canadian. I know I can't get that back but I have no need for it and I can use the money so give me a decent offer and its all yours.

I know of a few guys who have been using them for a while and they haven't craked one. If you plan to run a big heavy turbo you can brace the manifold in a few spots for extra support.

Here is one example... http://www.e30tech.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=31642&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

Looks exactly like it, same gussets, pipe cuts and similar finishes.

Not sure on when you plan on installing this if you buy it, but it should still be covered under warranty for another 8 months or so. If you're not running a monster turbo and you take the precaution of bracing the manifold in a couple spots I wouldn't worry about it cracking. Although it looks similar in materials and workmanship to an SS Autocrap manifold it happens to not be one, there are a few people running this manifold en e30tech and I have yet to hear of any of them cracking. It's a risk no doubt but shoot an offer that will make it worth the risk... you never know. BTW the OP is my buddy and I have the same manifold that I will be putting up for sale. We bought monster turbos that do not allow you to run a valve cover with this manifold. :idea:
