    Crack on my manifold

    I have just noticed a crack on my manifold . Should I be worried about it or is it ok (Probably not ok). It's on my Gsi Z20LET. Cheers

    what's it like top end, matey, does it pull the same at 3-4 rpm's as to 5-6 rpm's

    or the best way is to get a boost gauge,

    Not sure, I know it's blowing a touch but that might be because of the snapped manifold bolt I have top left hand side.

    It's only going to get worse as the manifold heats up and cools down the crack will grow.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Will I be loosing power through this? I have not drove it long as it's just gone back on the road. It seems pretty quick as it is. Looks like I will have to get a Vxr turbo fitted now.

    you can see the crack already getting about half way along the manifold now so i would change it when you can.
