Default Older style Begi manifold for 1.8L

This doesn't fit the FM2 downpipe I'm attempting to use, so I'm getting a new manifold from FM. You'll want to use a Begi or custom downpipe with this manifold.

Does not come with hardware... I'm reusing what I have.

I have this EGR plug if you need it:
J.W. Winco 906-ST-M22X1.5-A DIN906 Threaded Plug: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific J.W. Winco 906-ST-M22X1.5-A DIN906 Threaded Plug: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific

$200 shipped

Degreased, wiped down with alcohol, then painted/cured with VHT FlameProof.

Are you kidding? How badly does it not line up? Just grind the casting on the block if clearance is minimal

From what little I've read about the differences in the manifolds, there's about 10mm of difference in the location of the downpipe. I'm also having an issue lining up the hard lines, so I'm just gonna switch manifolds. :shrug:

i always thought they designed it to be identical so it was backwards compatible with old BEGi/FM manifolds.

I didn't think it would be an issue at all until I tried to locate the lower downpipe. FM said there shouldn't have been any differences... but consistency was an issue back then. The pictures are showing, right?

It's now currently pending sale to Savage.
