    No. No way of making it better so Wardy made me a new manifold and then charged me for the privilege. It looks nice and hasn't cracked in the time I've been using it. Flanges warped a little but I don't think there's any way of truly preventing that, unless it's cheap material? It's the design that's flawed. I did ask for an exact replica of my old manifold as that one worked but was given this and assured it was better. Turns out it isn't.

    I’ve been looking at Walton manifolds and they look to be of a similar design. Maybe they are ported better inside? Who’s Wardy? Remember the name but not sure of where from.

    No idea if Walton manifolds are any good or better as I've never tested one, sorry. Wardy aka Andrew Ward of APW Engineering.

    I've lost count of the amount of people I know running APW manifolds, and I also had one at one point, and I've not heard any issues. I think Blaktooth was very unlucky in all honesty

    You call it unlucky, I call it unprofessional.

    Was it just the wastegate position? Or did it crack?

    Bad luck or poor design, you decide.
