the manufactoer states most 4-2-1 will give *UP TO* 10% more power low to mid range.

this threads been dug up from the past lol

Don't always believe the marketing hype as those are often inflated claims that most people will not realise. If you purchase a decent manifold you will get gains everywhere in the rev range.

Default Phase 2 manifold with no cat

I have 03 saxo (phase 2). I want to fit a 4-2-1 manifold without a cat. Iv been told a phase 1 manifold will fit but the oil filter might need moved. Do u know if there is a supplier that sell phase 2 manifolds with no cat or what I need to do to make a phase 1 fit?
