Did you put in a flexible section? What kind of gasket, if any did you use between the manifold and turbo? Mine leaks, and all can find is the chintzy thin metal gasket. The manifold flange was slightly warped, so I filed it flat. Any recommendations?
I have a couple of these (pictured) in between the primaries and the turbo. If you get a braided flex pipe make sure to get one that’s lined. I read a few horror stories where someone used the non lined, braided flex
pipe and the heat generated from the turbo actually melted the fibers and sent pieces of metal through the turbo which ended up trashing it.

I believe I used the standard metal gasket between the manifold and turbo. Might’ve been the one from Precision (if provided) or it could’ve been one from CX racing.
Haven’t had any trouble so far.

How easy it to bend them to the angle you need?

The short ones like mine don’t really bend.
for my Application they allow enough wiggle room to align my v-bands a little easier and let the primaries flex a little when under power.
