Thanks for the reviews.
I have emailed pictures to Lightspeed Innovations here in Red Deer of Haros Pems, and requested a time this week for me to book them in to get looked at and worked on

I just saw this aftermarket exhaust manifold on e-bay.... I'm curious if it has better inlets than OEM.

I wonder if anyone could get the seller to send a picture of the inlet for verification?

Being a stock replacement, I wouldn't expect it to be different at all.

Those Wbody store ones look like they are my only option for PEMS, and they are indeed built up in the chin area,not much though. The guy here in town had a look and said the cast ones are hard to do because of heat issues while welding, he figured they wouldnt turn out as good as they should, and If i could buy a set online for 179 i should just do that.

Matt - don't rush into anything yet... I found something on the 00+ front mani yesterday which may help in building up the chin abit. I am going to have it looked over at one of my connections and I will know by Tuesday how much it'll cost to fill in, port open, and ceramic coat.
Might be able to swap for the cost of the build-up and shipping and the old front PEM I sent you.

Will let you know as soon as I find out.

It'* your choice -I just wanted to let you know there may be a cheaper option than the W-body store.
