    Intake Manifold splitting?

    Does this Mani show signs of splitting? The cream colored crust flakes off & there's some on the inside too. How would I test it?

    To me, it looks like water has drained down through the holes below the bolt holes and just run along the seam. Do you run in salt? I don't think its split. I think its just residue left behind after the waters dried up.

    That looks like salt water residue...

    I've cut a dozen manifolds up and that area is the strongest seem, it would split on the other thinner side before it did there...

    OK, fresh water only. The residue is on the inside too. I'll try to get a pic of it.

    Thanks!
