Sorry I can't help but I am curious, what are the prices for oem and GLM? I still have a couple years before I need to replace, but not too many.

OSCO manifolds made in the USA and at about 1/2 the cost of original manufacturers. A little heavier and look more rugged. Just installed both manifolds and risers for my 5.7 merc for $495

Personally, I'd stick with the Mercruiser parts ONLY. Too many problems with 3rd party discount junk. When two products are within 10-20% of each other, that's one thing. But ask yourself why something would be 50% cheaper, or more. More frequent replacement intervals and or mechanical problems down the road is no justifcation for saving $1,000, but ask yourself this:

"If my summer is interupted by mechanical issues, would I pay the difference in the cost of products to get up and running again"? You bet you would.
