I am at the point where if I don't find something used I'm gonna open up 10 different manufacturers websites close my eyes and point to one.
For what it's worth, I wouldn't hesitate to use the Revolution headers again, The polished ones look very nice for the price.

I'm running them on my BBC (525 HP). I haven't had any problems whatsoever. They bolted right on and the engine definitely seems to breathe a little easier. I probably gained a couple hundred RPM from the stock Merc stuff. Good value for the price. My $.02.

My brother-in-law installed the Revolutions on a 454 Mag (stock, thru hull exhaust) shortly before winter lay up. He gained 200 rpm and gave the boat a whole different sound.

Over the winter a blower was installed, gained much more rpm and speed, and kept the same great sound.

Another friend with T/502 gained 3-4 mph with the Revolutions. The extra rpm's allowed him to move from 26" to 28" props.

Sounds like the revolution manifolds are the way to go if looking for low cost cast iron replacements. I'd like to know how many use them in salt and how well they hold up.

Not cast iron, cast aluminum.
