So i hear an exhaust leak under my engine hopefully it is a gasket but it could be a cracked manifold, sounds like it at least, i dont suppose an EJ manifold would so happen to bolt up would it?

Where can i find a new manifold?

90% of the time in my case the exhaust manifold leak has been due to failed gaskets on the heads. Once I had a cracked echaust pipe right under the turbo flange too. There is four mounting screws for exhaust manifold per head but factory uses only two of them so It is advisable to mod the heads to use all four of them if there is any bad bolts in there. If possible it's a good dea to manufacture a whole new exhaust without that nasty original T-joint in it too.


EJ manifolds don't fit directly.

Yeah, it could be a cracked exh manifold.

I've split one in half before. Remove the covers and you will be able to tell for sure.

I welded mine back up with a brace so it wouldnt happen again.

Now its not a issue since my swap.

Somebody mentioned that new crosspipes are not available anymore.
