Sick of threading your existing manifold every time the solenoid works loose? So were we, so we set about making our own from Stainless Steel. Now you can get the perfect seal on the manifold without being afraid to over tighten.
Whilst making them, we decided to port the exhausts on them to allow the solenoid room to breathe, reducing FSDO.
The Evolve Paintball 03 Shocker Ported SS Manifold is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Fixes the problem of stripped manifolds forever
needs to be cleaned up a bit before installation
I installed an Evolve manifold plate for a customer and here is what I noticed about it:
1. There were still some metal shavings in the portholes, pretty small and easily missed but they were there. I had to take a small drill bit and clean them up a bit, and then use compressed air for good measure. Check yours if you get one.
2. The milling is clean and sharp; the extra deep exhaust ports should be a benefit. Looks nice, feels nice, makes me wish I had my own CNC Machine.
3. Installing was a small challenge.
a. The included bolts did not have an Allen wrench hole or Phillips head on top of them. They were deeply threaded on the top of the bolt with octagonal sides, very odd. I suppose these are for computers or something like that. They also are to wide at the top to fit into the slots cut out on the board. So basically these different bolts are worthless.
b. The plate's female 0-80 threaded boltholes did not line up perfectly with the solenoid that I was using. Not a big deal, but it took a bit of wiggling to get the stock bolts in the holes and tight.
4. However, the plate is solid, you can get those bolts in tight and not worry about stripping the plate one bit.
This plate will end the problems caused by the stock manifold forever.
Great product, price is a bit steep but it is high quality
