[s-cars] RS2 Manifold from E-Bay

This may be what was discussed a 3 years ago or so where there were
manifolds with D5S on the casting which were prone to cracking.

D5S is the CORRECT alloy but is very hard to cast as the temperature needs
to be absolutely correct to get good flow.  If not correct you end up with a
casting with lots of internal porosity, which is not necessarily apparent on
the outside.

The pictures I've seen possibly indicate a porosity issue.

If anyone is looking at that replica manifold on E-Bay, here are some more
pictures.  I forgot to take a good looking in the turbo outlet, but will
edit one in later.  It looks okay, casting was made off an actual Audi
manifold by the looks of it.  You can see some places with imperfections,
but overall, looks okay.  For the price, it's worth a try.
