    i have had 2 of them over the last year form ebay made for t 304 and both have cracked i have spoke to afew engineers about this who have told me that t 304 is cheep steel it looks pretty polished up but its not up to the job of the heat the engine puts out so dont waste your money the flow of the manifold is good and made 16 more bhp on the dyno but its let down by the cheap steel witch is a shame really thay do make more power but you will be replacing them all the time the heat is just to much for them !!!!

    T304 is fine for manifolds the problem could well be the welding,it all depends where the cracks are,if they are towards the bottom of the manifold have you got a flexi in your exhaust system.
