RE: exhaust manifolds

Hi Dan,

I recently learned about the 2 piece exhaust manifold while talking with 
John Bekius and Mike Galiwas at the Brainerd quattro club event. Mike is a 
Porsche/Audi mechanic from PA. He has placed this exhaust manifold on an 83 
TQC which he works on and was at Brainerd. I seem to remember it being 2 
pieces which is split between cylinders 2 and 3(or maybe its 3 and 4). At 
this point there is an accordian section piece which allows expansion and 
contraction of the exhaust manifold pieces. I seem to remember a price 
mentioned of around $2500 for this manifold. Yikes!

As for replacement exhaust manifolds, there was an article the UK magazine 
"VW/Audi Car" which showed the creation of a custom stainless steel exhaust 
manifold for TQCs and they are available for purchase. I can't find the ad 
for the company which is making them right now, but will look it up in the 
old issue and post it along with the price they posted.
