[QUOTE=mattb16teg;2230159]I didn’t equate to spending money as doing it right but why buy some junk, jagged on the inside of the cast manifold that will most likely cause more problems to save a few bucks? I was also saying how doing it time and time again will leave the car down more, less time to enjoy it while your redoing parts you could have be done with in the first place.
Your rant really shows your ignorance and how much you really do need to learn… DO tell what exactly is this old school you speak of?
Actually you buying stainless steel and making a manifold would be a tubular log and yes those break quite easily.
It’s funny how you throw out these ASSumptions as well about stuff on my car, the work in it, etc. I’ve had my car for 10 years and put in the wrench and fab time, in that time I’ve learned some things. Of which I was trying to pass on to you and help you out.
fyi, my WG is a Tial 44 that I paid $200 for used because it is the best unit out there IMO. Why settle for less? Give your idea a try and let us know how it turns out!:goyou:[/QUOTE]
Oh, I’m not doubting the quality of name brand parts. Most of the time the money is because of better quality materials and RnD. My assumption was based only off your comment. You made it sound as if having to modify parts to get them to fit is a bad thing. I just don’t mind it is all. I realize things will have to be changed around if I change manifolds, that’s not a problem. And downtime doesn’t bother me as I have other things to do to utilize my time.
And what I mean by a more old school way of thinking, is that… if you have the skill, patience, and time, why not just make something yourself? Now granted, I can’t exactly make a turbo or wastegate and what have you, but things like exhausts, intercooler piping, downpipes, etc, that’s not a problem. Remember, you’re the one that said, “What I don’t think most people understand is the fitment and customization it takes to make things work with EACH and EVERY turbo manifold.” Which sounds like you making an assumption that I don’t know anything, as well as capatalizing the ASS in assumption, very mature. Yes, I know these manifolds are cheap. Yes, I know if I change to a different one, the orientation will be changed and I’ll have to modify my downpipe, and probably one single piece of intercooler pipe. I used to have a 700 dollar Neukin manifold about 6 years ago, now THAT was a nice piece, but I don’t have that kind of money to spend right now, and I don’t feel like waiting. =P
But you’re welcome to your opinions, and most of what you said is true, however. Don’t you dare begin to tell me what I should or shouldn’t do with my own time and money, as I wouldn’t dare tell you what to do.
And FYI, try to find one assumption I made about your car in my post. I also never called you names, besides being sarcastic and calling you “Mommy” which was well deserved as you were telling me what to do. And if you read I said, “I don’t know about you, but I have no problem… etc.” That’s not me saying that you don’t do your own work, that is me saying that I will not make assumptions, but I myself have no problem modifying things if I have to.
But yet I’m the immature one.
