    Picture of exhaust manifold cut at AFR tap site

    See the attached pictures of a 06 exhaust mani at the afr tap site,
    As you can see, not much room for error, around the back side it is just as thin,
    I think the trick is drill with the 5/8" and only run the tap down just a little bit for the threads,
    When I ran the tap all the way down is when it hit the water jacket,

    That is rather sobering... I would have done it different if I knew that when I taped mine.

    Thats why people with pre 08 went to 08 and newer exhaust the castings are different thicker. anyone with 08 and newer should not be worried with lack of " room for error".

    Really useful post and photos.

    Anyone care to sacrifice an 08+ manifold so we can see the difference?
