    I'd say a ported stock mani! :l
    That's what I have. Not too sure what the difference in power would be.

    The JMF manifolds are not sheet metal (mild steel), they are aluminum. Any fabricator should be able to weld the crack and you'll be back in business.

    Why not get your jmf fixed? Just have to reweld the crack, would be a lot cheaper and still keep the aftermarket intake.

    You may want to get some bracing put in where it cracked as well.

    If you need a place to do the work for you talk with Brian at Erbified Motorsports. He's great to work with and very reasonable with his labor rate.

    If you don't want to do a sheet metal perhaps the cast Magnus is the way to go.

    Sheet metal is any metal in the form of a sheet.

    For cast manifolds the hawver is a pretty good option. They have some dyno numbers up now for it. They are priced really good also, 550 bucks.
