Turbo manifolds have their own warranty terms and conditions due to the high stress environment of performance vehicles. There are several reasons manifolds typically prematurely fail. Reasons for a manifold to fail as follows;
- Excessive Vibrations
- Examples such as using hardened non OEM type engine mountings or excessive use of Kerbs and rumble strips on race circuits.
- Excessive Heat
- Manifolds are typically made of 304 Stainless which has a working range of 870~ degrees. Exceeding this temperature range rapidly increases the fatigue of the material. Excessive heat can be caused by prolonged use under heavy load, engine ecu malfunction or lack of airflow through the engine bay.
- Lack of support
- Lack of support of the Manifold, Turbocharger & Exhaust system. A Poorly hung exhaust system can place stress on the manifold components leading to pre-mature failure.
- External Wastegates, External “screamer” pipes place additional stress on the wastegate merge point in the collector. This causes premature failure of the wastegate port.
With the above information in mind;
- Warranty is void if the Manifold is not supported to the engine.
- Warranty is Void is the Downpipe is not support to the engine pre-flexible section or if the exhaust system is poorly hung
- Warranty is Void is Non OEM Engine Mounts are installed.
- Warranty is Void if External Wastegate dump is Atmospheric (Open Screamer)
If any one of the above is applicable to your application. The warranty is VOID.
