    Exhaust mods......Help!!!!

    Hi all and a happy christmas.

    What i am needing to know for my new year project is, Does anyone know if there is much work or fannieing about involved in changing a old turbo`d intake and exhaust manifold to a non turbo`d inlet and exhaust manifold to go back onto a non turbo`d lump and is there a difference in the front or down pipes.i forgot to mention it is a 17d non turbo engine and the original was a low blow 1.7 diesel



    Would really appreciate anyones help.

    Many thanks.

    hi thanks for the reply i have been using it with the original turbo manifold however i left the turbo inplace but it was disconneted from the oil supply etc, but now i want to put it back to how it should have been done when the engine was changed a couple of year age, had to get the engine changed quickly cause it was my work van at the time and the only engine i could get was a non turbo so the original manifolds had to be used to get it back on the road sharpish, now its just a spare van so i got time to put it right.

    Well i would say it will be easy. Just take the turbo one of and put the proper ones on. I would say the zorst will be different though
