    Manifold Is Here!!

    Well my 140 quid ebay special exhaust manifold turned up thismorning. At a first glance it seems ok, nice and shiney, welds are pretty smooth and it all fits together nicely. All I need is some heatwarp and ill get it on the "beast" lol





    and sort of put together


    I do have one question tho, on the above pic you can see there are 2 holes that I presume are for the lambda sensor. The problem is im pretty sure I only have 1 (unless im having a special moment and havnt seen the other 1) so if that is the case how do I best block that hole?

    hmm, the hole is on the top so I might of just missed it but I heat wrapped all of the exhaust so Ive got no idea how I missed it. Does yours have the cat in the manifold or under the car?

    seein as ur on the changeover 2000 year i cant say for sure but if ur cat is on ur manifold then you have 2 lambdas..... if its underneath on the front section than you only have 1

    if its the latter, then you're gonna have to get creative...... or just grab an old knackered lambda off a scrappy and bung that in the hole

    seeing as both lambda holes are all gonna be before the sports cat (if u fit one that is) then you're gonna have to space the lambda(s) out with a few washers or specialist lambda offsetting spacer - to prevent the emissions light tripping.

    if u have the X series engine and are fitting a sports cat then youll be fine with the 2nd boss blanked up and the first one in use with ur original lambda probe

    cheers for the help fellas. I should of said mine is the X16XEL so its the one lambda job from that. I thought Id gone loopy when I saw the 2 holes cos I was almost 100% I only had one and turns out Im still sane and was right lol. Good idea with the nackered lambda thing tho, I think thats the plan ill use. As for fitting Il get it on as soon as its heat wrapped and my gasket turns up so hopefully saturday
