    Turbo To Exhaust Manifold Gasket & Manifold Gasket :(

    Right ive had my car checked out by a turbo centre. He said the gasket to exhaust manifold from turbo ( 3 bolt ) & the exhaust manifold are leaking .

    He said he'd need the car for 2 days & quoted me 175 for the job. Also said that the manifold will need skimming in case its warped.

    Anyone ever done this job & came across it before ? Would anyone be willing to help a solider out hint hint

    TBH, its more likely the manifold is cracked, its common sadly. Get yourself a replacement manifold and hav a go yourself. Its fiddly but do-able within a few hours

    The prop will not need to be removed, the mani comes out from the top after removing some of the intake pipework etc.

    I did our old TQS in a car park outside the hostel we were living in ( don't ask)
