    Z18XE Exhaust Manifold Gasket?

    My exhausts making loads of noise from the manifold, perhaps a cracked manifold although I cant see anything. Is there a gasket fitted on these, or is it just metal to metal?

    Sounds like a hole in the manifold itself. Look for soot coming from a particular area or a blackening of the manifold itself in an area.

    There will be a gasket there.
