    Z16XE manifold options?

    So after the basic induction mods, a catback exhaust and all the other usual small niggly bits its now time to add the next bit of the puzzle , my exhaust manifold.

    What are my options with these for my engine? Being the one with the manicat it seems there arent many manifolds for it.

    The stainless manifold on ebay for ~220 ive been told would fit but then creates two problems.
    1. I obviously lose my cat and 2. The Z16 engine has a second lamba sensor after the cat with the manifold doesnt have a space for.

    Just wondering how easy it would be to get the lamda sensor into the manifold and also whether i have any other similar alternatives developed specifically for this engine?

    have a look at the lexmaul or piper if they dont do 1 for the z16xe try one for the z18xe, i presume the bolt pattern maybe the same, as the z18xe and z16 use some of the same parts as its essentially the same engine.

    just an idea not to sure tho

    yeah i seen that lexmaul manifold on LMF. Only problem is that its £700 odd notes. If i can get away with fitting a lambda sensor to the ebay jobby and decatting it in the process then it will be much cheaper.

    Right! For anyone interested ive found a similar manifold to the other one i seen on ebay that ends at the cat and so i will still have my old lamda sensor in place i believe. (il have to go check its exact location when i get outside.)

    Yeah possibly it could, but i would know why so its not really too much of a problem.

    So you got the X series engine manifold? How much are they fitting the lambda sensor for?
