Where in the States do you buy the gasket that fits between the manifold and downpipe for the 1500 Euro setup? Or, do I have to order it out of England?

Yes, probably Rimmers or Canley, or that sort.

Thanks Andy, appreciate the offer. I'll just have to wait for snail mail to deliver it. In the meantime, I need to decide where to send the manifold off to get it ceramic coated. That will take longer than the packet coming from England.

Use Por 15 exhaust manifold paint. Lasts nicely around 10 years. Just needs to be freshly glass beaded I think. Kyle.

Hi Kyle,
Yes, painting is one option I'm considering. The debate in my head at the moment is whether I simply want it to look nice, or whether I want to go through the hassle and expense to have the benefits of ceramic, eg. lower under-bonnet heat, increased heat retention within the manifold, and the improved extraction of the hot gases that entails. Dilemmas like this tend to stop me dead in my tracks. confused smiley

Where did you get it done, Andy? I see they coated the studs. Did that affect anything?
