Exhaust Manifold Mod
Has anyone ever cut the material off the exhaust manifold where it exists from the water jacketed part to the J-pipe? I know people have had problems with it melting but can you remove it completely? Any input would be apprechiated.

i wouldnt cut it as that will expose the flexi joint to the full heat of the exhaust which is usually protected by the alloy protrusion so even a melted one is better than nothing.

I'm goin to be adding a water jacketed exhaust pipe for my turbo from there. It's goin to be very short. Just wanted to know that if i cut it off there won't be any of the water jacketed part near or in there.

No water in the tip for sure but the J pipe will fail mine did with the tip burnt off.I had to do my tip replacement and replace my J pipe.

But I'm not using the j-pipe, I'm starting my exhaust from that point on.

I cut the manifold tip off today. There isnt any jacketing inside of it. The section of water jacketed exhaust pipe from my header to the turbo will be about 3" long. Starts from the 3" vband on the header to the T25 turbine input on the turbo. I'm goin to be fully water jacketing the turbo exhaust turbine housing as well. Ill post pics as it goes.
