What does everyone think to this???

Post  DubaHolic on Thu Jan 20, 2011 11:24 pm

Just found this in germany and when i was doing my exhaust the other day i noticed that this section was looking very rust and thought that if i need to get a new one i should look at upgrading prices too, so found this and i am very tempted Very Happy

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Facherkrummer-VW-Golf-2-II-G-60-Corrado-G60-NEU-/230576322824?pt=Autoteile_Zubeh%C3%B6r&hash=item35af6b7908

It is in german but here is the translation for the main part about the item, the rest of the ad is about the seller and where they are from.

"Offered here is a high quality exhaust manifold for the VW Golf GTI 1.8 1.8 G60 Corrado

This manifold has been processed, polished from high quality stainless steel.

It is suitable for the Golf 2 GTI Golf 2 Corrado G60 and without ABE.

This auction consists of:

1.
A manifold, polished stainless steel
2.
Sealing a

The general sales price is around 650 €!

Through this manifold is very popular in the tuning world, the performance is extremely high. By better exhaust outlet, the storage space is reduced to a minimum which leads to better performance and power to the vehicle. Many customers I was even reported that he allegedly has a fuel-saving effect by the more rapid diversion of the exhaust gases. What is incredible!

If there should arise questions that I like to mail me any question to answer as fast they can."


Anyway what do you lot think? Should i or is it not that good?????

If you can get that for around 50-60quid posted then do it! I bought a TSR one off ebay about 4 years ago for the 1.9 TSR'd mk2 I had at the time for £40. When I sold the car to my mate I gave hime the manifold and I really wish I hadn't!

Also is there a flxi after the mani?Otherwise the ss ones if not 316 grade stainless tend to crack as there is no give in it.

Ive had the problem twice now.Both cracked on the 300zx tt and once on the Mk1 Astra GTE.
I always retrofit a flexi if it hasnt got one.Like Adi said its not difficult.

Cheers guys for the advice, i defo im more and more intrested in this everytime i look at it, plus i am thinking that if it does go cheap then i wont be able to resit hitting the bid button. Liam, i had already thought that i would wait and see if i get this then i would do the whole lot at the same time.
Yeah it does have a flexi, so does this mean i should look into putting a flexi on? I understand that it could crack but how common is this fault, does anyone know of someone who is running without flexi and has been for a while and all is good???

See my problem is that i am a sucker for shiny parts Laughing Laughing

manifold and centre section, will make it a little mor raspy, supercharger gives it the grunt, put this all together and you get a sex wee every time you start the car up mate. ste[p by step is a very good idea, just have to make sure that we get all the pictures. i need to get my mani off to weld it up to fit the centre section back up to it, to get the power back and my back pressure. haha, is all going to work, as both cars will be getting fitted it will be a lovely step by step.
