What's the verdict on SAScustoms manifolds?

Are these popular, yet?
I'm thinking of picking one up with a t3 flange and buying an adapter to run the EVOIII 16G I have, or seeing if they'll make one with a DSM flange.
Either way, the goal is to run the EVOIII 16G. 47lb/min is perfect for my goals with the car.

Anyways, they're relatively inexpensive, and their description makes them seem made in-house. With the dollar doing well, the're like $350.


Anyone have one or know of good/bad experiences with them?

I was thinking SAS or 2L 9000 manifold with T3-to-DSM Adapter.
My main concern is room between the turbo inlet and water pump. on my old manifold, everything was moved-over a couple inches to allow for a larger intake pipe/bend.

I don't REALLY want to dump custom manifold $$ into this thing =0/

How about an adapter flange instead?

Well, it would put the turbo SUPER low, and the stock manifold is a turd.
The runners are small, and the pulses collide at the merge.

At least the 9000 manifold has bigger runners, and keeps the turbo up high.
It's not the most modern design, but it would work fine. certainly no worse than the stock one.
