Help To Fit New Exhaust Manifold?
Im after a bit fo advise.
A few days ago and spent 6 hours yesterday trying to get it to fit!
The car was stripped down in less than 40 minutes but when I come to put this manifold on it was nothing but hassle. First I had to reroute the oil pipe to the turbo and then once I started to put the nuts on the head side of the manifold I noticed that the turbo bolt holes where a mile away from lining up!
Then I noticed that the bold wouldnt even go in the holes as the due to where the holes where drilled. So I rounded the holes alittle and got the bolts to fit through the holes but again unless I cut the bolts down they would of had to go in on an angle and I would never have got the thread started.
No matter what I did the turbo holes wouldnt line up without making the holes even bigger and risking the strength of the manifold at that point. I even got the feeling that even if I got it on. Tightening the nuts/bolts would have been a near impossibility on some of them due to how well they where obsquered.
I e-mailed the seller and have had no reply as yet. Any advice?
What would you do would you try again and fit it?
Try and get your money back? bear in mind I drilled out the holes alittle!
