    They are ok. They add a small amount of bhp but its more the noise you buy them for I reckon. Raceland ones are a good price for what they are. They are worth wrapping just to be on the sfae side, so they don't melt anything under the bonnet. Dubpower do one also - very well made, but quite a bit more expensive at around £300.

    I will have a Raceland one (with only 4000 miles on it) for sale in a few weeks once my turbo's on. Let me know if you are interested.

    Standard exhaust manifold is very well built with excellent flow charasteristics, if it's leak free of course
    The best job you can do is gasket matching and porting/polishing it. Then you may even get better performance with it than buying aftermarket 6 branch, and it's cheaper too.

    Don't bother mate, not worth it. I looked into it and there no gains at all.
