Avoid ebay.

Tegiwa is a Toda rep and very good from what ive heard, although not sure if they make them for d-series?

Id personally just save for a b-series engine :p

Ive seen people go for Japspeed but then again, for d-series their arnt many that will give you very good gains.

It's not so much wasting your money, it all depends what you expect from it and how high your expectations are.

Yes its a stainless manifold, yes it will fit a D-series and yes it may give you slight gains.

BUT the quality is not going to be amazing and it may end up cracking on you within 6 months or a year maybe it may last even longer. Also the chances of it being of a good quality metal to stay highly polished is ZERO. So don't for one second buy it because its "shiny" it'll stay that way for no time at all.

But you have to balance up weather spending the £60 odd quid or whatever on one is going to be worth it in the mean time until you can afford a better one.


There are better D-series manifolds out there, some are expensive like the Bisimoto ones but you get what you pay for. The dearer to buy the better the quality as a rule.

Tip for polished chrome etc taken from one of my Honda tuning books is to use HT paint and spray the inside of the manifold with several coats to make sure all the innards are coated, let dry etc and then install as normal. This keeps the shine a lot better than keeping it as it came out the factory.

X2 ^ DC sports manifold seem to always give fair gains for the Price.

Fitted an Ebay manifold to my LSi D15 a good few years back, it made it slower and sound like an Impreza !! Put it straight back on ebay.

surprised at the posts TBH

they aint all bad for the cash my old A9 had one and made 150hp with minimal mods.

if you were gong for balls out power then i wouldnt buy it. but then again im sure you would know that.

mine cracked once in 3 or 4 years as i didnt have any flex in the exhaust.

I really wouldn't bother with cheap mods like this, you are more likely to lose power than to gain anything significant and why would you want to fit something thats so much worse quality and so much cheaper than your standard header? Fair enough you're wanting as much power as possible for as little money as possible but always remember that Honda will have spent loads more money and done loads more R&D on the standard part compared to cheap ebay parts

true on the R&D spending but then again ebay manifolds are copies of jdm manifold makes so cant be all that bad
