    Manifold Kit for Dax SBC

    Hello

    I have been using the forum for info for a few months and have found nearly every answer to every problem I have come across during my Dax build. So a big thankyou to all you knowledgeable experts for helping a beginner so much.

    I am in need of some help with my exhaust manifold kit. I bought the kit from Custom Chrome (side pipes,bends,collectors and flanges etc.) I do not have the neccesary skills and equipment to cut and weld the manifold kit (should have checked that out before) so I am thinking of selling the kit and going with the DAX stainless offereing. Problem is that it is V.expensive compared to what I paid for the Custom Chrome kit.

    Are there such things as mobile frabricators that I could use to come and build the manifolds for me or does any one else have any suggestions that I can use to avoid paying DAX all that extra cash.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Dave

    PS. Great stand at the show, some real nice cars.

    RE: Manifold Kit for Dax SBC

    Cant help you with the fabrication, but just a few tips. The Dax unit is Stainless wheras Custom Chrome gear is steel. If you get one fabricated get a ceramichrome or similar finish as my Custom chrome pipes are now rusting after 5 years. If you can afford it go for the stainless steel as it is then end of worries with no additional investment.
    Regards.
    Mike.

    Thanks Mike

    I think I have found a buyer for my Custom Chrome Kit so I am going to bite the bullet and pay up for the stainless pipes from Dax. Probably best in the long run as you say.

    Cheers
