    Question lmf tubular mani any good?

    just looking for now at tubular manifolds and lmf are offering lifetime warrenty on thier manifolds, link is below

    http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/Tubular...ira-Turbo.html

    i know nortech are about the same price but with only a years warrenty i believe, to me the lmf looks a decent enough design

    people in the know please be so kind to give me a bit more info and what to look for in mani designs

    happy with that they looked the similar, i like the look of the courts kit we talked about but after talking to turbo technics i want to aim for a bit more power.
    i may aswell rather than upgrade anyway later and waste more cash.

    wastegates bypass the the exhaust gas from the turbine housing preventing the turbo from overboosting all controlled from your actuator, internal is fine on small turbos as it dont need to flow as much to prevent overboosting, its just better on bigger power applications to use an external wastegate and having another exhaust pipe basically to control the ammount of boost the turbo makes and flows loads more and a little internal wastegate will not flow enough exhaust gasses

    Well ill wind my neck in then lol, well they both look good and nortech seem to be the best, well its worth the money for a lifetime guarentee and the cast mani idea is out the window for sure

    H4af100uk what cams are you using? Not to sure if they are worth doing. Ill be at least getting the head rebuilt with some porting work
