    Check the collectors on the TD manifold before it's fitted... Make sure they're even.

    You mean from the outside? Because the actual collector is not visible since its hidden down the piping.

    Re: Flexi joints can do one

    Look down the overpipe end, make sure the ‘cross’ is even and not bent

    Without having an endoscope or a dentist's mirror you can't see it. It's round a right angle bend from the end there.

    Re: Flexi joints can do one

    Good point. I think I may have fallen foul of fake news. Ignore me

    On a side note, I bought this the other day.



    Milktek overpipe arrives shortly and I need to get some wrap and gaskets. Then it's a case of finding a tuner.

    Incidentally, this is what the offending part looking like new:



    It's degraded remarkably quickly.

    Re: Flexi joints can do one

    Did you heat wrap it at all?

    Re: Flexi joints can do one

    Largely not, it had a heatshield blanket thing on the top, but that fell apart so mostly it's been unshielded.

    Re: Flexi joints can do one

    Ah, sometimes wrap can actually make it worse since it holds the damp (when not in use clearly). I'm looking in to what heatshield to go for myself at the moment.

    Re: Flexi joints can do one

    I have some self-adhesive heatshield for the sump and intake that I'm going to fit, and a bit of wrap for the upper loop of the new manifold (it passes close to the intake resonator and can melt it). Other than that, I'm leaving it bare.
    The best solution is to have it ceramic coated, but that's expensive.

    Re: Flexi joints can do one

    In typical fashion in halfway through changing it and found I don't have a deep enough socket for the bolts. Just had to do an emergency Halfords run.

    Re: Flexi joints can do one

    Turns out it was a lot worse than I thought.



    However, the new manifold is on, looking much tidier.



    Lowe, already have a remap, I'm hoping I can get away without another one.

    Re: Flexi joints can do one

    that looks like there may have been done mechanical abrasion going on there with that old coupling.

    There's not really anything to abrade it there though. Strange.
