Hey all,

Do all MC2 200Q's have the two piece exhaust manifold?  I had my mechanic
checking for a leak, which they found coming from the manifold area.  Part of
the reason I bought a the MC2 car was that I thought it came with the better

I asked whether the manifold is 1 or 2 pcs, but they said they didn't know.

If it is a 2 pc which is leaking, is the best c.o.a. to replace whatever
offending stud or gasket is at fault?  Has anyone seen a 2 pc manifold crack,
or a 1 pc. manifold on an MC2?

Does it really take 10hrs to r&r one of these manifolds?  I'm trying to decide
if I need to find another manifold or header before they (or I) get into this
too far...

Also, if the turbo is coming off anyway, is it possible to bolt a k26
compressor side on my k24?
