turbo manifold fitment issue

Postby theUNYTEDone » Sun Feb 19, 2006 11:07 pm

well i recently got in my downpipe and turbo manifold (ebay special, i believe) :doh: but haven't put them in yet, i'm almost positive the Dpipe will fit, it came with the support brack, all hardware, etc. so did the tubular manifold. however, there's a problem. i drive a 1990 ST185, and i found that the manifold has TWO EXTRA STUD HOLES! apearently the 92-93 185's had a 9 bolt configuration. mine has seven. will the manifold still fit despite the extra holes? and if so, would it be advisable to go through with installation? orrr...would it just be wise to try and pass it on and resell?

it will fit, but then you need a different alternator braket

the easy thing to do is just cut off that corner of the manifold (left upper corner) the right upper corner should not be in the way of anything

if you cut that corner off it should fit just like your stock manifold, use your old manifold to know how much to cut off for a proper fit.
