  • Astra H VXR Replacement Exhaust Manifold

    Just bought this replacement for my cracked exhaust manifold, wondering if anyone else has bought one before and what are they like? Thanks

    never bought the manifold on its own. ended up just buying a new turbo which had the mani included. just be careful of the bolts that hold the manifold onto the engine block they are prone to breaking so plenty of wd40 and patience needed

        You're lucky with that pal. If you haven't already, change the studs too, cheap enough and IMO a must if you're in there anyway.

        Just done mine and got a few photos here > http://www.astraownersnetwork.co.uk/...ing-VXR/page18
