Inlet manifold query
Duplicated this post in the 147 lounge but figured you guys who swap parts and probably try everything might be a good shot at a solid answer.
I have an 08 plate 147 and had the dreaded MSCF for the swirl flaps on a couple of times over the past 3 months so decided to remove them, but my car is fitted with the later plastic inlet manifold (part no 55207527).
Does anyone know if the older metal manifold from a cf3 engine is a direct swap for the later one, obviously I know the flap actuator wont bolt onto it but is the rest the same?
And also can I just leave the later actuator plugged in the same way as the older type so it doesn't throw up any errors.
