The Dasher (twin outlet) exhaust manifold will fit on your 4000, and you
must switch to using the Techtonics VW Fox downpipe to match.  Your oxygen
sensor will have to be moved to the Techtonics downpipe (it comes with the
fitting).  I have done exactly this mod to my 4000.  Visit my web site for
some photos and stats (URL below).

I am not sure what manifold the 83 4000 has, but if it's got only
a single outlet then it's not worth the trouble.  Also, my 80 4000
had a twin-outlet stock manifold with oxygen sensor but the downpipe
flange angle was different than the early Dasher manifold, hence the
Techtonics downpipe wouldn't fit with that manifold.  If the 83 has a
manifold like that, then it won't work.
