1) Many people use it mainly for bling and low cost
2) No, it doesn't make 15whp
3) Doesn't change sound much
4) It is known to crack, it allows heat to escape, and it doesn't make as much power as porting your stock manifold, which will not crack and costs less than the Megan even if you pay extra to coat it

You send your manifold to Buschur Racing, they port it, coat it, then send it back and you install it.

If you want to avoid downtime with the Evo, then you purchase a used manifold like the one for sale by Russjnco, and send it to Buschur. They send it back, you install it, then you sell your stock manifold. The porting and coating is $195 for both last time I checked, although the one Russ is selling is already coated!

Stupid Megan Mani's.

A gusset on the Megan O2 would help it avoid cracking. I don't know, Just throwing it out there.

I've suspected O2 housings too, but I have no way to prove it. There's a bracket that bolts between the stock O2 housing and the block. How come the aftermarket one's don't come like this? A tubular manifold trying to support the weight of the turbo, an O2 housing that can't be bolted to the block, and some of the downpipe's weight. Throw in some good heat cycles and...
... but again, this is just my suspision.

Yes, Larry, an aftermarket o2 with no bracket attributes to cracking, but the Megan's in general are prone to cracking at the welds regardless.

ebay O2 housings are the same as Megans. I was just saying that an aftermarket manifold trying to support the turbo and stuff by itself could lead to cracking. There shouldn't be any issues with a good ported stock mainfold and a Megan/tubular O2 housing.

I think they crack due to a lack of filler metal. Sure the welds look nice, but a little more metal would make them stronger. TIG welds on the megan products look like fusion w/ no filler.
And not saying it wouldn't Warr, but I bet it would take alot longer for the Mani to crack if the O2 hosing had a gusset or two.
