    Anyone have any experience with BARR MARINE manifolds... good bad or ugly?

    So I used Barr to replace my 350 Mercruiser 3" manifolds a few years ago. No problems, just the hose had to be an 1/8" bigger. Probably a patent thing.

      I wouldn't be surprised if they all come out of the same foundry in China.

        Pat. Why not use oem PCM manifolds and risers? I’ve always had pretty good luck with them and found them to be competitively priced. Just got a full set for my Ski Nautique and was pleased. The boat came with Sierra manifolds and risers and I couldn’t change the plugs. My engine is a HO with GT three bar heads.

          They have been around forever. (Barr) Didn't Teds boat come with the stainless heads? All the manufacturers went Chinese so none are what they used to be.

            I was gifted the BARR manifolds and a set of PCM risers. It's more cost effective to replace the PCM risers with BARR raisers as compared to PCM manifolds.

              It did, but I'm not able to get my hands between the manifolds and side of the gutters to get the bolts/studs in. AND this is with the center console off.

                $1200 down the drain. I don't think Ted paid full cost but damn what a hit.
