    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.

    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.
