Swirl plugs

Looking for confirmation that these are right size Swirl-plugs for my 210 BHP 2.4 Manifold? would like a bit of assurance before i tear her apart & chances of being left with a non-driving car with 1 week waitingtime for correct sizes arriving.

Let me check the ones I bought. Those are to big to fit the manifold of mine. Ending up wending the holes.

The 18.5mm plugs fitted my 2007 2.4 JTDM 200bhp - You can almost see the size insitu as they will be pretty much the same size as the plastic swirls flap discs you can see on top of the manifold

The earlier manifolds where the whole assembly moves use the smaller 15mm plugs, the later manifolds that have a spindle moving inside a bush use the larger 18.5 mm plugs, can you post a pic of the top of the swirl valves.
