    Has anyone got a AEB head on the bench that they can measure the true exhaust port size?? (Mine is fitted and I want to do some porting port on a 'Chinafold' before fitting)

    Thanks

    I think its 38mm.

    You dont want the manifold matched to the head, you need the head to be a tad smaller than the manifold to prevent/reduce exhaust gas reversion.
    Id take the manifold to gasket size if i were you. I know for a fact the gasket is bigger than the aeb exhaust ports.

    36mm or 38mm, I have got a gasket so I can certainly measure that size.

    Thanks

    Yup, just measured my AEB head, the exhaust ports are 36mm.

    The AEB exhaust manifold measures 38.5 though, not that it's any use on a transverse car.

    If you leaving the head at 36 then its prob only worth having the mani 1 or 2 mm bigger.

    Perfect guys, just the information I require, a slight step head to manifold then, thanks very much for you time.
