    Found this on ebay
    cost: 349.00 shipped OBO

    from looking at it and the turbo kit available for the ecotec(china bay kit), its the same manifold found in that kit, so looks like the chinese have finally made a ecotec set up, now if anyone has exp with these, you will know the welds sucks, flanges are sometimes warped, and turbo's dont last for shit, just wanted to throw a warning out there.
