BMW turbo manifold on Kijiji

This looks like it could save someone a lot of work....I have no clue whether this is a good design. Anybody want to comment?

Looks like OBX turbo manifold, some people have had success but I'm pretty sure the build quality on them is slightly questionable and have heard many horror stories of simple issues such as cracks in the welds and worse things like small welds and internal flaws breaking off the inner walls and wiping out turbo.

Can be made into a decent manifold with some shop time, tools and knowledge to improve upon a well priced design.
