Pypes now offers the D-port RA manifolds, with 2 1/2" opening, for 2nd gen Birds. They are said to be as good as the RARE brand, but cheaper. :yes

I've been eyeballing these for an upcoming engine swap. Has anyone tried them?

What I have read is that they fit nice, but from a performance standpoint the over size ported RA restoration pieces are better I saw a side by side comparison and you can really see a difference in the quality.

Hey guys just wanted to check and see how these manifolds worked out?  I have a 75 TA with the T10 4 spd.  I've got the 400 out and when it goes back in I wanted to go with headers but looks like there's not much that fits the 4 spd.  Right now I'm just looking for something better than the stock manifolds where I don't have to spend a lot of time with modifications.
