Hello, Just curious if you can offer some advice. The exhaust manifold in my 8V turbo car (1983 8V turbo non-APC and no oxygen sensor) that I'm restoring is cracked and I have not been able to find any uncracked ones at wreckers, etc. Do you know of anyone who has made custom replacement exhaust manifolds for 8VT engines before? There's got to be something out there. 8-) Failing that, do you know of a way to repair a cracked exhaust manifold by a means other than welding? I don't find the idea of welding a casting to be a very good solution but I guess it all depends on the skill and experience of the person doing the repair work. Thanks for any advice you can offer, Craig.
