Need a turbo manifold

I have HPF turbo kit with steed speed turbo manifold. I'm having sealing issues keeps leaking, I removed it twice and still no luck. I'm looking for HPF cast manifold if anyone can locate one or has one laying around. If I can't find the HPF one maybe someone has another one that u can purchase and I'll make it work.
Thanks

Well...you would be better off trying to find a new steed speed. The HPF Log Manifolds are garbage...spool slower and they crack. They're dirt cheap...literally.

And to my knowledge I have never heard of a steed speed manifold failing...ever...hence the lifetime warranty.

Good to know ... Where does it crack. ? What's the spool rpm difference between the two?

200-500rpm difference. Never saw the crack; just heard of the failures.

Thanks for the good info... I have both and didn't realize the spool increase.... I thought they were same... I just don't like how much heat is stored in the steedspeed.... So I bought a cast one recently to try out... I'll see how it goes.... If it's bad I'll put the steedspeed back on...

I never had any issues with my Cast. But I did switch to a Steed Speed. I just like the manifold design/look better and figured it may last a little longer.

I did have an extra Steedspeed, but it is likely on Marcus' car by now. If you contact Leen at Steedspeed you should be able to get a set of the stainless sealing rings. I have never had an issue with their rings not sealing. We have never used the copper ones.
