The AO have gven me the go ahead to gather a list of interested parties for a group buy of the much discussed Crossover Manifolds.
I'm not asking for any money yet, and won't be until they are being built, so first off, 16v owners are the lucky ones i guess, as thats what mine is, and mine is built and finished, so as my car is coming off the road, that Manifold is going to be the pattern we jig/reproduce from.
No-body should feel left out, 8v, P4, and sud/sprint gearbox runners, the fit will be perfected to allow substantial disc and diff clearances accordingly, in a short time, as i get donor cars on the ramp that i can double check the fit on. So don't be shy, add your name into the list if you'd like one no matter what you drive, i'll get to you as quick as i can.
There are talks of this manifold being marketed and distributed by some Alfa Motorsport specialists, and to that end, this group buy is for a limited number until further notice. I promised the forum members the best possible price, priority on availability, and the very first crack of the whip, before it is potentially taken in house by someone who has much larger overheads than me to meet, so in other words, it will never be cheaper than now!
As for price, i have tried my absoloute damnest to keep it as low as possible for the forum, whist still building the very best part i can, and i believe it represents great value for money.
It is available here on this group buy, at £395, and includes manifold to head gaskets, which are neither cheap or readily available!
There will be some Postage and Packing on top, and i am in discussion with a specialist motorparts courier who may take care of all the distribution nationally, and internationally, so our none UK Alfisti needn't worry, they can all be catered for too. More on this as we draw closer to possible deliveries.
The manifold on my own car finishes in 2" diameter pipe, and that is how it will be supplied unless you state otherwise in the group buy list. I will tailor the final manifold exit to suit whatever size you tell me too, at no extra cost.
Similarly, if anyone wants me to fit the manifold, or add minor alterations to suit there own uses, we can build the manifold on the car in Nottingham by prior appointment, and the additional charges will be minimal. I will help wherever i can.
Full centre and rear systems can also be built as i have done with my own, but more on them seperately, or watch the petrolheadparts website for photos and prices soon.
I am putting a list of warranty terms on my own website ( home page
) so everyone will be clear on how any possible issues will be dealt with, so please look for this.
So, to the main event, and this is something i've been excited about for a long time now. For anyone who wants to know more about the manifold itself, please see the full thread "boxer exhaust manifolds" for how it all came about, and technical and background details of its creation. I will continue to be active on that thread, and i am always at the end of email@example.com
for any advice you may want, or queries you may have.
