Consider the the KE's. No leaky header issues, and have shown to be good performers.

I'd go with the Imco Powerflow Plus- or maybe just regular powerflows for that app.

This is pretty much a question of runner length & inner diameter and the PF plus's are really nice.

Ive got decades of experience with their products and they have been phenomenal.

I ran a set of these on a 540/ 600 hp. I ran in salt water for 3 seasons, and then fresh for two more before selling the boat. I flushed after every run, and had no problems with them.

I know a few people that have well over 10 years on Stainless Marine with no issues (me included). And they flow well (no RPM loss vs. CMI headers on 500 HP)

I just replaced my Stainless Marine manifolds after 10-12 years of use. Hoping to get another 10-12 out of these.
