    Exhaust Manifold Options S3

    Just found out mine has a big hole in it so what options have I got that are as cheap as possible without compromising quality and likely to crack??? If none I will get a second hand one from a member. Cheers

    Within reason lol...

    Like I say, there are several threads where this mani has been fitted to get an idea of how its done... K04 manifolds are a knob of a job regardless

    While you are at it I would do the DP too... Relentless also do a decently priced 3" with 200cell cat..

    Decided on going for a genuine one new. Used to work for TPS and still get a bit of discount.

    that's a horrific price. don't even think about it.

    Relentless is £300 from Sam, gaskets and bolts are a few quid. £20 at most for the lot.

    with oem gaskets and bolts your looking at probably £100 quid cheaper for xs v2 even v3 xs is cheaper.
    Whatever you choose good luck and hope all goes well

    Ok, do they give a good performance gain and fit easy enough? i know fitting is hard but i mean once its up on head does it line up well?

    People have been getting near 300hp on a std K04 with the right mapping and supporting mods using a relentless manifold and downpipe...

    Westy has one of the quickest std K04 setups on the forum currently...

    the V3 appears to be relatively easy to fit compared to previous versions, huge performance gains are to be had too.

    It'd be crazy to remove a standard one and replace with another gash standard one. they flow TERRIBLY.

    Sam won't be above to say mate as commercial trading on the forum is only allowed from sponsors... suggest you try other ways to get hold of him...

    Ahh ok i see, right until further investigation tomorrow there was a stud missing on manifold, im hoping its just not there not snapped off as i really cant afford head off at mo.

    Would it be ok for now with all the other studs as tight as possible, i hate bodges at the best of times but i dont have alot of choice at the moment.
