Offset Exhaust Manifold
« on: January 31, 2010, 07:37:58 pm »
Sorry another question.

Gott my eye on a turbo manifold on ebay but i have just noticed that were the turbo bolts to it, it is offset to the left, where as most i have seen are central.  Does this make any difference to how the downpipe is angled as it passes underneath the engine or are all downpipes the same???

cheers joel

sory i ment NOT central, as the common one,  i was mega tired form the weekend, wasnt really thinking proper.

Theres one philj is selling and thats central mounted with a the downpipe to go with it, and one on ebay which i missed :( which was to the left.

will it make much difference to space in the engine bay to wheather its a lefty on central?? or is it just the angle of the pipe as it travels under the engine???
