Those larger manifolds will probably get you a good 20hp.

With your blatantly incorrect use of the word manifolds, my respect for you has decreased substantially.

I'm assuming you're ESL. Most using American English would use "manyfold". Manifold is typically reserved to be used in reference to air intake and exhaust components of an automobile engine. Yes, the words are interchangeable according to a dictionary, but so are "shop" and "shoppe", and you don't see us using both.

What's incorrect? Enlighten me

Bottom line: It's an adjective and you're using it as an adverb. Just doesn't work in that context.

Oh! I didn't know Americans came up with English. Always thought it was the British. My bad. I stand corrected.

Glad to have cleared that up for you, old chap 😉

Fine, I can't argue with a dictionary. However, to A1's point...not only is manifold rarely used outside mechanics, but I've never seen anyone use it as an adverb. Maybe a time or two as "manifoldly"... But nowhere in the top 50 words I'd use in your context

Miriam Webster is an American English dictionary. Just because you haven't seen "manifold" being used in this context a lot doesn't make it incorrect. Just admit that your understanding of the English is not up to the mark and is not as good as you think it is. You just got schooled biaatch 🤓
