Anyone heard of or tried Marine Power manifolds? I was looking at reducing some weight out of the back of the 18 and GLM Aluminium SBC manifolds have not been available for the past 1.5-2 years and one company I talked to offered these as a comparable product. They are not listed individually on Marine Power's website but they say they are "Semi-Tuned Aluminum Exhaust Manifolds." At $600 they might be worth a shot, anyone used them before or have any experience?

Me too.

That said, the MarinePower deal sounds like the same thing. Probably cast in the same foundry in China. I've been happy with the GLMs thus far.

Stainless Marine! Nuf said! Love mine, or CMI's if ya want Bling
By switching to to the stainless marine I saved exactly 83 lbs over the factory iron gained 100 RPM's an about 1-1.5 mph but handling improved as well. You might gain a tad more with the Blue motor, my results where with a stock 6.2.
