This week my new original-style exhaust manifold arrived! I bought the manifold on ebay after keeping an eye out for one for several months. The manifold that came with the car was an aftermarket header, which is pretty typical because the OEM version was prone to cracking.
This one actually does have some cracking and evidence of a repair. I will probably have to send it off for more repairs.
But for today I spent a little time cleaning up the manifold with water, Simple Green, and a brillo pad.
