Default Repro HiPo Manifolds

Hey all,

Guy locally has offered me an unused set of HiPo manifolds (repro, not original...but they are the repros with the original casting number) for 200 bucks. Decent price? Worth the expenditure?

Woo, looks like they are about 325-350 everywhere I look. So assuming these are in solid condition 200 bucks sounds like a steal.

Yes but like I said check to see when they were made or bought if you can. Search the forum for fitting issues of previous models. A lot have stated there were some port mismatching on the previous version.

They may be the ones with severe port mis match.

Nope, he wanted 300 for them but I bought a chunk of other stuff from him so it was kinda one of those "Take it all, get a big discount" deals. Just a nice older guy who is really enthusiastic about old cars, I'm 31 and he was probably in his 60s. We talked for some time about the mustang he had and the falcon he currently has (a 64, I think it was) and how he is turning his two car garage into a "one car man cave." He has a stop sign, a working traffic light, a TV, etc set up in the garage and a spot for his Falcon next to it. Just a dang friendly guy who was happy to see one of the younger generation (younger as a relative term) enthusiastic about vintage cars.

They look good, and i've read that even if they are mismatched on the ports it's nothing a little tooling can't fix. I know several very handy dudes and one who owns a shop and is a family friend (who has been absolutely instrumental in my mustang) so I went ahead and picked em up.

I figure at 200 bucks they were probably worth it...if there is some issue I have the original receipt and box so I'll just call the company and see if they'll make an exchange. Ya never know.
