I remember seeing a couple threads with people selling their OEM manifold. If you want to go aftermarket however, I recommend the Full Race Prostock manifold.

Pro stock is direct replacement. other types are for running larger turbos and setup of External WG

as i can see. there's alot of manifold type. what is short runner type? tabular type?
Do some research either using google or the search button in the forum.

Cheapest fixed would be to buy a new/used stocker.

The cracked manifold, leaking or not, is not causing your boost spike.

The material can be welded, but it is a complex task. Might be cheaper to purchase a previously-owned stock manifold and replace your current one.

Do not be surprised to find most used ones are also cracked. That material will crack when it is over-temped (excessive EGT), which is caused by poor tuning.

somebody say crack?
:bowlol: ha ha ha!!!!!awesome!!

Dude if you have a visible crack on the outside of your manifold i wouldnt even bother welding it bro, the chances are the crack will be massive inside.

I had a hairline crack on the middle right manifold branch and when i changed my turbo the other day, i looked inside the M/F and it is badly cracked.

Im looking for a new M/F too, i wouldnt buy a race one on a stock turbo though! they will just give you bad turbo lag.
