Intake Manifold AliExpress

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I hate myself for even asking this because I normally don’t buy these types of things

But has any purchased one of these intake manifolds off AliExpress?

I just spent $1450 on a 6boost exhaust manifold and would like to cheap out on the intake so I can spend more money and get a better intercooler 

 

any feedback appreciated!

I would not cheap out on anything. Maybe find something used, but avoid alibaba for anything except to joke about how others get taken by them.

If you're willing to shell out for a quality exhaust manifold, why cheap out on the intake manifold? Go for a Plazmaman one. Don't waste your time with these.

No idea how things have changed but about 7 years ago a friend bought the "Freddy" manifold for his RB25. He ended up having to do a lot of clean up and porting with a dremal, buying fittings for the water lines and the head ports didn't quite match up either.

Ultimately he got it on the car and it likely worked as well as a Greddy however he said he it was a POS and would never do that again.

I'd rather cut and shut the factory manifold over buying one of these abortions. 

Yes they work if you machine the flange on it. 

But they weigh at least half as much as an rb, no honestly they're heavy as and the casting on the inside of the runners is sketchy. I wouldn't trust some of the casting slag to come off and get sucked into the engine, just not worth the risk in my opinion. 

Factory intake is good, multiple people have used them over 450rwkw.
