    Yes same here i have the 04 1.6 twinport z16xep and wanted to get the xe exhaust manifold, i know the xe's inlet wont work as thats where the twinport system is located.
    Also the induction kits i.e every list ya look at in mags always states 1.6 16v yes mine is that but does it matter if it has the T-P?
    Cheeres P.S Sorry for the hijack

    the twin port has the same exhaust manifold as a z16 lump the x16 has no cat on the manifold.
    you could use any induction kit on the 1.6 twin port if you want or just go for a K&N in the air box
    and the same with the exhausts i think looking at them

    I fitted an Irmscher back box to my twinport and had to get an adapter pipe (supplied by Irmscher) as the twinport has a sleeved exhaust whereas the Irmscher (and other) backboxes are flanged.

    ive got a 1.6 twinport also. Ive had a cat back exhaust fitted and put in a K&N panel filter with the airbox mod. I looked at getting cams etc, but a chap at courtneys said the twinport engine didnt seem to take to cams that well.

    Dblias do an intake manifold for the twinport (think its 810) which gives it a few more bhp according to the details online (regals website)
