    Wonder if anyone knows any threads with successful outcomes.
    Iv read a very long thread but ended a few years ago.
    It seemed like the manifold (s) that was being tested was not a straight forward fit.
    Im taking mine to a local exhaust specialist, so i cant really expect them to figure out custom fitting n all that. Surly theres 1 that bolts on easy enough.

    from what i can work out, there a pain in the arse to fit, sit stupidly close to the bulk head, and need 'extra welds' to stop them braking. cheap and nasty in my eyes, but thats my opinion.. id stick with the original and work from the downpipe onwards.
