well i pull my car into the shop tonight to do an alignment and some other stuff and noticed that my intake manifold was cracked all along the top weld,

i was running 20 psi earlier in the week and than yesturday it started to loose boost and i could only hit 10psi, looked over everything and thought it was my wastegate but than today i found this.

weapon r has always had a reputation for shitty products but i figured id buy it cause i thought it would be better than the stock plastic one with holding up to boost but i guess i was wrong

Do you have any pictures? Aren't there some people running big boost with the stock intake manifold? I think the stock plastic manifold will hold... But go with a cosworth manifold! TOP QUALITY!

Adam, I can still get the cozzy. They are hard to track down, but possible.

Ship me the WR one, I just got my welder setup and would love to fix her :lol:.

Im sorry that happened bud, but I saw it coming when they made them.

RUK- jake broke his stock around 400whp (blew a hole out of it). Not sure what psi but I remember what hp lol.

what turbo are you running now adam? I read somewhere back in the day you were going to a 35r?

it was a nice kick for the NA 3, but seriously.. i think the only thing I would buy from them is the ETD. seems like thats only thing they can make right.
