  • 215 Exhaust Manifold identification?

    Hi, how can I tell the difference between a 195 exhaust manifold and a 215? I am after a 215 version hoping it is a larger diameter? By looking at them, doesn't the 215 have take off on each runner where the 195 doesn't. But if the internal diameters are the same, then I'll look for an Evo2 or Sport evo manifold instead.

    Obviously I am looking for something better, any info on this or if anyone knows of any going for sale, please get in touch,

    Thanks in advance,

    Paul.

                    Thats what I thought, but looking closely I think it's because the non cat header is not placed at the same angle as the others lol.

                      it's the same length. All off the headers are the same length.


                      Goodbye M3, you served me well.
