    I'm not sure yet tbh. Don't know whether to get the toyo or get a second hand one and get it repaired. Or even the ktec one if I can afford it

    Feel your pain.

    I have nothing but hatred for the whole manifold 'issues' with these cars.

    Good luck with that one.....enjoy the new K-Tec sound-track though :smile:

    I know it's a nightmare. And it's expensive if you can't do it yourself due to the labour

    And you mate. I didn't even realise it had the extra plates welded in for extra strength. Even better
