    Anyone local that can help me replace my exhaust manifold?

    Mine has a crack in it, and I cant afford the £60/hour labour charge from my garage to get it done there, basically broke till next month at least, and I really need this done, if I were to source a mani from a scrappy, does anyone fancy helping me out with this?

    Can come to me or Ill drive to yours not fussed, Im sure I can sort out lunch and a few bevvies for your trouble

    Spoke to my uncle and he said its like 10 bolts or something? Just need to really soak the bolts in wd40 apparently, as they tend to shear, and if one of them does that whilst Im at yours, cant see me getting home easily Bricking it lol!
