OK guys, just got my kiwi in. What can I say? it's a gorgeous manifold. I saw in one of the other posts that one of you guys had a cracked kiwi. I was wondering isn't the Kiwi supposed to be T304 stainless steel? If it is, then why does it crack? My old revhard manifold cracked but it was cast-iron. Thanks

Not sure why they crack... obviously Temp related...

That is one sexy piece isn't it !!!

I would recommend that you have it HPC coated though. It will significantly cut down on heat and probably help prevent cracking. I know it seems like a sin to coat something so beautiful... but I'm gonna do it to mine when i get one...

btw - did yours come with the wastegate and flange or just the flange?

Mine didn't come with the wastegate or flange. I have the Tial 40mm already and
called Atomic Performance to find out why
my manifold didn't come with a flange. Nonetheless it's a beautiful manifold.

So are you still going to do the piping yourself or did you get that from Atomic?

That's strange about the flange... I didn't know they even came without one...

$950. It's the street version of the manifold.

They shipped it out to me last Thurs. I believe. It's being mated with the same turbo I have now, a T3/T4.

alberttien: hmm.. did you get the dp from him too? i am thinking, either you are getting the same batch as I do, or that is the manifold that was suppose to go onto my car. did you talk to jeff or charles?

anyway, post some pix. i am itching to see the quality and fitment.

btw, i think you are using the apexi intercooler right now. how did you get it to fit?

I can hardly see the apexi intercooler there.. hmm did you have to remove anything else to fit the intercooler there? i measure the space i have in my lude, and 2.25" seems to be the max i can have. how did you fit 2.75" of it there?
