I did a custom kit for a lot of reasons like, the fact that they don't make a sidewinder manifold for the TSX, it cost me half the price or less then a name brand one, my kit will be one of a kind, why buy it if you can make it. I can answer a lot more why's but you get the point.

Do you have it? I've been trying to get one but Hondata stop selling them...
I'm thinking about building a harness now that I have the TSX and RSX ECU pinouts.

sorry i have been really busy. i got some of my stuff from http://www.verociousmotorsports.com/. the merge collectors were ordered from a website for european tuners cause it was cheaper there. the pipes are schedule 10 stainless steel. i probably got about $400 into that manifold, maybe a bit more considering it took me a long time since i didnt even know where to start. remember it is custom made to fit the TSX. its all trial and error. right now im in the process of ways to kpro my TSX.

ill be happy with 300+ but my original goal was 400hp. maybe a rebuild and bigger turbo or i might just sell my TSX after i finish my build.

schedule 10 stainless steel material. the manifold probably cost me around $400-$500 in material. the tricky part was figuring out which runner to weld first and last. it was worth it. i just got done welding up a short runner "log style" manifold for a EP3. that was a tight fit.
