Dana makes a very nice manifold. I run them on by blower motors.

cheap ain't good & good ain't cheap.
cmi or stellings are the best for headders & eikerts & danas are the best when it comes to manifolds.

I have 2 pairs of EMI's on my Formula 292. I Have been running them since last August and absolutely no problems! The biggest difference over stock was the loss in weight. Probably about 100lbs. loss in weight per motor! I had them powdercoated yellow to match the boat with S/S risers. They do turn many heads when engine hatch is open.

The Formula 292 can only be maxed out with twin Merc. 377's from the factory, so the EMI's do not generate alot of additional performance on the small block application versus the big block. I Maybe picked 8-10 HP per motor, if that much. Again, the biggest difference was the loss in weight, thus making the boat plane faster and better. Awesome fit/finish and would purchase them again for small block applications. If I was buying for big block applications, I would buy Dana Marine's.

Why? To see an example of what NOT to buy.

Manifolds are like the Ford vs. Chevy thing. Everyone has their opinion.
I prefer Danas. They look better to me.

I have to say that bang for the buck I think the EMI system is a good value. I just bought a set through Elite Marine for a HP500 motor that I purchased with no exhaust and dropped in my boat. The EMI kit was easy to install and the finish is excellent. Although I would have to say JS is right, the Danas are one of the best manifolds out there and they look cool to boot, but you will spend about $500 over the EMI price tag.

EMI manifolds list at $990 a pair for the manifolds (black)
Risers are $320 a pair for silent choice applications in black.
$1310 for black & add another $140 for polishing.
Danas are $1100 for the pair of manifolds & $495 for the risers (silent chioce applications) & come polished or powdercoated in a variety of colors. $1595
If you were going to buy the EMI's I would opt for the better risers. That setup is $1870.
Danas are less expensive, look better & out perform all other manifolds out there, as a matter of opinion on everything but price.

I was going straight off the Dana website. Manifolds are $1100/pair and the Vortex V risers with 3.5" ID run $1125/pr, but they are polished and look KickAss. I bought the EMI with their stainless 3.5" ID risers and I paid around $1800. I would like to hear those Dana's compared to the EMI. Are you running at LOTO at all this summer? I talked with your buddy Ben the motorman about building the 502 EFI that I just pulled out of my Outlaw and would be interested to hear the difference between the EMI and Dana for when I repower.
