Found this exhaust on Ebay. Anyone know anything about it? First time I've seen one like this.

Neat!
Do we think it would use a regular exhaust manifold gasket?

Thanks Kesteb for providing the name. I looked at a few threads from 2007 but discussion seems to be about the quality and initial claims from the creator. Didn't find any with members giving feedback with first hand experience. Either way, dropping a bill might not be too bad give it a try.

I went back and read the original thread... wow.

Ebay seller's username has "Don" in it, and he also has a single outlet manifold (for $80). Is this the original builder, I wonder? If so, it seems like the guy finally found a reasonable price point for his product.

For $100, it might not be a bad way to get dual exhaust on the cheap for someone who can't weld and fabricate. I used a Dutra setup on my race car, but it was restricted by the crappiest home-built 2-into-1 pipes in the world and still made a noticeable difference for a mildly built-up 2-barrel engine.

Maybe peek inside and take a flashlight to those welds first, though.

That's almost certainly the same guy. Apparently still doesn't know dual from duel. I wouldn't waste time on it myself.

The original builder was selling the "power pipes" from a web site. Do a google and you can find it. The biggest problem was not neccessarily the design, but his and his wifes attitude. He was also promoting a \6 turbo kit at one time. There is a youtube video of a ratty looking Dart with his "kit" installed.

He ranked right up there with Spitfire Harold in my opinion.
