I am contemplating purchasing either an ATS or Blade runner Manifold. Do these make a difference, or is it a waste.

From all the test's in Diesel mag's I have read, I'd be willing to bet that they do make a difference. I like the cfm+ manifold myself though. Seems to flow more and wouldn't be as much as a heat soaker. Just my 2 cents.

Thats great. I gotta a guy in Idaho that can get me a killer deal on the CFM+, but he said they are pretty much just plastic. The reports do show that they flow good, but i wasnt sure how they would hold up.

Cool...im thinking about going to the Tulsa welding school to do That. I have a friend that welds on oil rigs, and pulls some big cash...not to be rude, but for career purposes, what should i look to make?

What you make is pretty much your decision. I will not work for scale if I know that contractor needs me badly. You make different amount's all over depending on the cost of living. That Tulsa school is one bada$$ school. Great place right there man!!!

I visited yesterday, and loved it. the people are great, and very helpful. My main concern is student loans. I want to be able to pay them back quickly but not be broke cause i cant make the money fast enough. Ive been hearing 28-30 an hour, plus per diem, but i would have to work 7 days a week to get it, or i wont get the job...thats according to another guy i talked to....not the school. Im willing to work however long, but if something comes upp like an emergency, i dont want to lose my job.

The guy said that if you miss even one day on the weekend, your toast. What companies are good to work for, and how much on average do they pay. Im looking into going into the master program, so i could do it all potentially.

The intakes are for people who are going to do all the mods possible. So, no I didnt notice any difference with mine but I fit into the category above. Nowhere near the bang for the buck! My thought, for what I got, it shouldnt be more than $150
