well it didn't answer my question at all, in the thread that you posted people choose between Outlander and Evo manifolds, which as far I understood caused some fitting problems. I'm asking about that manifold because on the web page said that it is for 4G64, which means that there is shouldn't be any fitting problems. I'm just double checking if it's true or not.

If your not going turbo theres no need for it. And if you actually read that thread I gave you they recommend a manifold that does fit.

The outlander manifold has firewall clearance issues with the eclipse. But it is known to fit fine in the galant.

well does any of you ever used that OBX manifold that I posted? It says on the site that it's for 4G64 Eclipse 00-05 and that there is shouldn't be any problems.

I would say go for it. If it looks a little flimsy then just weld some supports into it. Hell the stock one is known to break. I don't think it would be that hard to get it too fit.

obx is known to steal designs and make there own product with little craftsmenship and cheap materials like, oh i dont know "sheet aluminum", sell it for half the price of the original design and some how turn a profit.
i honestly havent heard of anybody using that material for aftermarket intakes but i could be wrong, just sounds like a good way to keep their costs down.
anyway like a said before obx are notorius biters so im just wondering where they stole that design from. looks like that old RIPP manifold prototype that was never produced. wish i had some pics to compare the two.
