Default Full-race ramhorn vs neukin or spooling performance

Years ago i had a full-race mani and I loved it but at that time it only cost 800 now they are asking 1200. If it was still 800 were neukin or spooling performance cost 650 i'de spend the extra cash and get the FR one but for double the price is it worth it or is a ramhorn and ramhorn. Also I will be useing a FR downpipe if i used a different mani than FR would it still fit.

Match your Manifold with your downpipe to ensure proper clearance and fitment. If you mix companies, chances are some changes to the DP need to be made

after seeing this thread I'm going to have to say go with the spoolin performance log manifold and their downpipe. for the log manifold and 3" DP it will cost you $500

or if you really want a ramhorn, even if you go SP and buy their downpipe it will still be $350 less then the Full-race manifold. Sell your FR one and put that money towards the Spoolin stuff

why when you can get the same result and save a few hundred dollars? I believe these days you're paying the extra money for the name. there are other companies that are just as good quality wise as full-race and much cheaper

Spoolin Performance. I stopped by their shop all the time and phil would answer all my questions even though I didn't buy anything. I've bought a radiator but that's about it lol.

Get his quick 4 manifold.

Def Spoolin, been using their ramhorn AC/PS compatible manifold and down pipe for 6 years now with no cracks on a daily driven 2000 Integra GSR.

I would be willing to try something different than the full-race manifold I have now. Two things that annoy me are the angle of the turbo and the asymmetry of the manifold that makes it really hard to tighten the #1 cylinder lock nut.

I've ran the Neukin ram horn in the past and had no issue what so ever, the wg placement was great and the welds inside and out were great. the car made 710hp on a t67 ho and no creeping, cracking, problems what so ever. Alex is a great guy that stands behind a great quality product.

I believe it is the costumer service more-so than the product quality. There have been a lot of threads popping up about shady business lately.

Alex owes multiple people on this forum money.
Neukin = stay away until he straitens out his debts/backorders/what ever bs.

While I don't have any personal experience, I have been looking for a good ac compatible manifold similar the brands you mentioned. I'd have to agree with mtber. While the neukin product is supposed to be good, his customer service is lacking. If you get the manifold, hopefully you never have any issues with it. Spoolin and Full Race are both great. I'd go with spoolin or speed factory personally.

i would pay the extra and go with full-race. In the long run if you ever have problems this company will still be their and their customer service is the best. Other companies will come and go. Plus you really cant beat the quality of full race

Spoolin gets my vote. For the price you can't beat it. Full race charges twice the amount. NOt knocking them. And people are making the same power level with both. I would use the extra cash else were. And spoolin backs there items too. Neukin is good too.

I was unaware of this, it's been 2yrs since ive personally delt with Alex. It's sad to hear another great product that has poor management. Im currently running a Full Race Mani and i absolutely love it.
