    Replace stock exhaust manifold with what?

    Today, after having a fun and hard drive home from the Nordic Lancia meeting, in pure excitement, my Fulvia cracked its exhaust manifold and started sounding like a moped

    I want to use this chance, to get a little better performance - but not extreme exhaust noise! (The crowl from the trumpets is what I like + maybe 10% more deep raddle)

    I've searched and read old threads, and understand that it should be mild steel, not stainless (ring ring noisy) and should be designed, so it's possible to install insitu, not having to take off the subframe.

    I'm properly not so fortunate, that all above demands can be met + the possibility to fit it to the stock middle piping and back?

    Would like to hear where I should get my new exhaust manifold! Thanks.

    Nice to meet you today and chat Fulvia!

    Omicron do Gp4 in mild steel which on my 1600 comes in at 98db at 4500 rpm. The whole system needs buying as the manifold does not line up with a standard system. I believe a manifold can be bought from Vere lancia in Holland which is Stainless but this will not sound tinny as it is the main pipe and middle box that gives most ringing....

    After considering, I choose Christos Skriapas in Greece, who have also made my adjustable lower A-arms in the past.

    He will built a replica works group 4 manifold in mild steel, that will fit right into the stock exhaust.

    Only downside, is that the engine shall be raised 5 cm to install it. But should be no big project.

    Will give feedback as to the performance and sound change, when I recieve it from Greece in app. 10 days.
