I already have the manifold in the mail
does it improve performance?
and if so how

it lets the exhaust flow free'er. a better flowing exhaust gives more power

more power is a good thing[>:]

Would the volcano sv be a better basher than the volcano epx because it has upper and lower arms and the epx only have lower.
