yeah generally if you have an issue you should have contacted the supplier and sorted it out with them

You won't get a cent out of them now.... if you left it alone and sent back immediately as a faulty product then you have the CGA to protect you.

Now, they are under no legal obligation to do anything....

as everyone has said you're out of luck. not the smartest move getting it fixed. suck it up and smile at your now $1050 manifold.

If their reputation is as good as people suggested up ^^ there, you could give them a call but ask to talk to the manager - no one else will be able to help you in this situation. Calmly explain the situation, where the faults were, why these faults were an issue etc. If you took pics before any work was done, you could offer to email them to help them understand what was wrong.
If you ask very, VERY nicely... they may come to the party and help out with some of the repair cost.
They are now not legally obliged to do anything, but they may feel morally obliged. Go in with the wrong attitude and you will get nothing, guaranteed. Go in with the right attitude, you may get something out of them, even if its an offer of $50 I'd take it cos it's the best you will get.
