Exhaust Manifold ?'s / Machine Shops around Hudson Valley/NYC area

Removing thermal-reactor-engineering-panic-attack manifold and all the smog trash from a late 2002 ASAP.

 

Likely going to purchase the shorty header from IE, questions;

 

1- Thinking that removing the old Thermal-Detonator™ manifold + downpipe by seperating the joint beside the transmission will be easiest with the engine in situ, yeah or nah?   

 

2- Has anyone used the easily available/cheap ANSA downpipes # W0133(manual) or W0201(auto?, shorter length?) with the IE shorty, the flange gasket on current downpipe/manifold leaks, thinking ahead of just building a new assembly instead of fighting more old nuts/studs.

 

Also, any Machine Shop recommendations around Hudson Valley, NY area, even western Conn, Mass, North Jersey, for some M10 work?

 

PSS  Anyone in the area has good condition non-smog manifold, header or exhaust bits, I'm interested for the next week or so.  

 

Thanks!       -J

I'm in Orange County NY; been taking my '72 '02 to Derek at Beeks Garage (3128 Route 44/55, Gardiner NY) in Ulster County. 845-255-7376.

Great mechanic, knows 2002s inside and out (he has a tii). Might be a little far for you if you're in NYC.

But he's always treated me fairly and does really fine work.

Good luck,

-Bob

Meh, if I wanted something fancy with a downtube I'd go for the proper 4-2-1 Tri-Y. .....

OP, the difference in downpipes will be how it angles around the transmission and mates to the exhaust.  An Auto-specific downpipe curves more so as to clear the bulkier transmission casting.  The 3-hole flange at the top end is the same.

Thx AceAndrew, I remembered there are peanut shaped flange gaskets for the auto/smog downpipes, didn't want to assume the flanges are all the same.

 

Nothing fancy needed, basically just replacing the crap smog manifold and removing clutter from the engine bay..   spare engine will end up with 9.5:1 pistons, strong spark and a single Weber.     

 

Thanks for the responses, I'm in Ulster County, just looking for an good small old school machine shop with a wise workaholic-sociopath and a few minions, no white glove racer $tuff, I'll check out some of your suggestions.

I was the same as you. Had to remove the smog crap from my '76 and needed something good without breaking the bank.

 

I bought a Chinese SS shorty header and a new aftermarket stock style downpipe. All worked out great. 3 years no problems.
