It was just the smoothing comment which is/was misleading for people who have no experience to read.
I don't know if you guys have seen this video or not but do check this out, its video from full-race.com on comparison of Equal length & Log type Manifold, though its on a GSR motor, they first dyno with Equal length & then replace it with Log type & do a re run. There was no change in boost or tuning.
The power graph on log manifold was much lower & not as smooth as Equal length type.

The only labor i paid for was getting my motor build because i don't have the tools and setup to build motor in my garage, but the rest i did myself. I think was close to $7000.00 dollers for all the parts, suspension, etc.

I hope you have a good security system in the CRX. As these modded Jap cars are the most stolen in US. At home you may have a garage but you cannot be sure where the car would be parked in the day time.

Dammit I wish I had a garage like that. Changing a timing belt in -10 degree weather is NOT my idea of a fun-filled wrenching session!

Labour costs in the US are around $90 an hour at the large garages, and 60 at the places who want to be "competitive". But if you know the owners it is slightly less, but just marginally...

Dynos, 1 run in most places is around 100 dollars in North Cali, not sure about other places though...But then again if you need multiple runs you can work out a deal. Also if the guy who has the dyno likes your car/wants to see the tuning potential, they cut you a great deal!

cheers:

Don't Cali guys like running Falkens when traction aint so hot? Reason being they're cheaper to replace, and have decent tread life as well [Told to me by some drifter friends there]
