  • Warning for HiTek manifold owners

    Word of caution to you guys that have Hi Teks on your boat- with a freshwater flush after each use, I got 130 hours out of mine. Total waste of money these were outsourced to Chinese manufacturing around 2015 ish. Keep an eye out on yours. This is the worst one on the starboard bank,the port side has bubbles just starting.

    That sucks! Sorry that you had this happen. Maybe you should reach out to Hi Tek and see if they'll do something for you. That's entirely unacceptable, and negates their primary advertised benefit.

      I should but I'm thinking they'll tell me I'm over the 5 year warranty anyway. Was not happy with their fitment or their sparkplug access right from the beginning but thought they would last longer that the cast iron ones. Just want to let others know not to bother with them or if they have them to keep an eye on them.
