Dyno developed would generally be best. Supersprint??

Re: Exhaust manifolds what have ye used?

i have a supersprint manifold pon my 2.0TS. theyre meant to be a direct fit, but mine needed the flange changing from a 3 bolt to a 2 bolt, and it needed extending by roughly 6" to meet my cat. the flexi section was also buggered, and another one had to be fitted.

nice sound though, and definite performance gain.

They sold you one for a 155, not a 156...!

Can't justify the costs for the gains, TBH.

If I'd seen it then I would have done.

The 155 has a 3-bolt flange
The 156 has a 2-bolt flange.

It is an issue that has come up before.

Re: Exhaust manifolds what have ye used?

Nope, the 156 CF3 is still a 2-bolt flange, but a different pipe shape because the main Cat is in a different place.

155 has both 3 and 2 bolt flange, actually, depending on year of manufacture.... just incase it wasn't obscure enough

Just noticed that.
2-bolt for the 16v until mid 1996, then changed to 3-bolt.
The 2-bolt version of the 155 manifold still won't fit a 156 though.

Re: Exhaust manifolds what have ye used?

I've got a Supersprint manifold on my 155, fitted perfectly and sounds fantastic. Pulls much better at the top of rev range.

Ah right, I thought you got it from a personal sale, rather than a shop on eBay. I'd be having words with them..
