Well when I suggested the poll I stated problems with stage 3r as in no boost or chipped fins etc. The large majority of people have no idea if their manifold is cracked or not. I personally won't take mine apart to look either. While the cracks may be the cause for the chipped fins we still don't know that for sure.

I don't have S3R, but I'd like to see the results without voting and throwing the whole thing off.
Can you add another option?

Not familiar

I am not familiar with what the problem with manifold cracking on Stage 3 is. Can someone fill me in? Also, srt4police said something about DCR fixing it. How do they do that?

I thought if you wait that long, the fins are already chipped and you have got a much bigger problem on your hands...... :grimrippe

Well as long as the crack is just the ramp from the turbine, it can be fixed. Basically Darrell welds more metal in there to fix the crack because the metal is too thin and raises the ramp to close the distance between the ramp and the scroll. This yields more power and a quicker spool up.

As far as if it is so bad that the fins are chipping, that I am not sure of.

how does one fix damaged turbines? or chipped turbines? I believe people wouldn't really give a rats ass about the crack (and get them fixed) if it wasn't somehow related to the damaged turbines.
