    Had car remapped but now need new manifold

    ive just had my car remapped but my manifold has started to blow, would i be able to put a performance manifold on my car with the remap and it still run good? or would the car run bad with the map? thanks Dean

    You can get a Dbilas manifold from REgal (£545-ish IIRC) car will run fine with the manifold on.

    Yeah will cause a power loss mate leaking there due to the O2 and lambda sensors, I have theDbilas and yes they are good mate - not for power increase or owt but just for the way they take the heat away from the engine and inparticular piston number 3.. Do a search on here for Dbilas and see what it comes up with
