    Default What exhaust manifold to buy EP3?

    Hey, so I just noticed that my cat is actually welded onto the exhaust manifold and the exhaust. So to change the exhaust I need to buy a new exhaust manifold (big yikes).

    Now is there a 4-2-1 exhaust manifold on the market with a built-in cat (that offers fairly good power) to pass the MOT? Then I don't need to change the exhaust manifold every year for MOT...

    And I've been looking at DC sports exhaust manifold and the k tuned exhaust manifold. Is it worth to spend the extra money on the k tuned one? Any difference in power when mapped?

    Thanks in advance!

    Do a search on here mate. As far as I know the best one is made by Toda which tegiwa have copied. Either of those give the best gains especially with a remap.

    Yeah, the Toda is the best one I think and Tegiwa should also be good. But Im almost 100% sure I will go with a K tuned one as I can fit a race cat to it

    KTuned products are generally pretty crap.

    Really? How's that? I've been told they are pretty good.

    I don't know what other manifolds I can choose from... As far as I know, there is like only K tuned that I can fit a cat to :/

    I can only find one post that's bad, other than that I can't seem to find anything... Maybe I'm not looking hard enough.

    What manifold would you recommend that is possible to fit a cat too? If their even is a another alternative besides the K tuned one.

    Just a small selection.

    A DC5 or Spoon 4-2 with a 2-1 then swap out the 2-1 with a cat come MoT time would be a good move.

    How is the DC5 or Spoon 4-2 with a 2-1 power wise when mapped compared to a 4-2-1? Significantly different?

    Ouch, seems like many are having problems with K tuned products :/
