Just so you know, I've had an SFP manifold for about two or so years now and have had no problems wit hit at all. It's a real quality product. I hope you enjoy it!

Yup, I am hoping for some 11 sec slips this season.
I have heard great stuff about SFP's manifolds. And that was actually one of my biggest deciding factors to go with the AGP kit (not to mention AGP's rep). One question, did your manifold rust?

No, but all of the paint flaked off of it. It's just a dull grey color. I have it heat wraped now.

Ok good to know, I wasnt sure if I should treat it first or not.

Kit looks good. :)
I have the same one, nothing but praises for it. You might want to have the manifold ceramic coated first, it'll help keep the heat in the manifold and out of the engine bay, along with the wonderful rust prevention it provides, being that it is made out of mild steel (paint coating on it will fall/burn off and it will rust eventually). I had mine ceramic coated at Jet-Hot with the 2400 degree coating, it was $120.
I too am hoping for some 11 second timeslips. :D I might already be there, but they only ran 1/8 mile that day so I'm stuck with a 7.80 @ 92 timeslip. :mad: According to my DSMlink logs (I ran some full 1/4 runs), I very well could've hit an 11 that day.
Anyway, enjoy the new turbo setup. :)

Ya I have been thinking about the coating, I really dont want it to rust but its so close to the season and I dont really have the money right now so I think I am going to do it next fall.
Good luck with those 11s :rudolph:
