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

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?

[/quote]

although the other jake made 430whp on stock manifold no problems i belive

i cracked it at 20psi on the gt28r, i was planning on putting my gt35r on this weekend and i might and just run 6psi which is what my tial spring is and put the stock manifold back on.

i also called them and they were like take a pic and send it to us and than we will send you a new one and in all honesty i dont want a new one i want a cossi

well alex the gt28r is off the car but its being put on my buddies sr20 sorry

i decided to say fuck it and put the gt35r on today, i jb welded the weapon r, instead of putting the stocker back on.....although it didnt hold up to boost very well...i was goin for 20psi on the 35r but all i could hit was 10 and than 6 and than all the jb was gone lol.

sorry, first time to see the thread and i had to. i'll take this into major consideration when/if i go boost. defenitely won't do it on my nitrous setup.

i dont really see a problem with doin a nitrous set up, just more or less a boosted application where there is positive manifold pressure...like if i crack my throttle you can watch the hole manifold almost like bubble, so i dont think it really had to do so much with there welding abilities but more or less the materials that they used
