There's really not enough demand...we need to commit 50-100pcs for it to make economic sense...

There’s a guy in Germany on the 2002 Facebook page that said he’s going to do a run of manifolds in the €300 Range.

For Euro 300 I would chance it, but it may crack just the same unless he knows what kind of material it should be.

I guess I need to make a decision about whether or not I can afford to get this car running.

Yes, it’s listed, but, no it’s not available. Wish it was.

I just acquired a spare exhaust manifold.  I would be willing to part with it to someone with a real Turbo that needs one.  It is in perfect shape with no cracks, the gasket surfaces are flat with no pitting and the 4 Inconel turbocharger mounting studs are there. I am thinking about having my other spare manifold ceramic coated and I would be happy to do this one as well.

Myself I'm not too much into turbos, always preferred the A4s from Alpina.

 

But a friend while fetching the turbo seats I redid for him told me yesterday, that they're currently trying to repro a batch of turbo exhaust manifolds.

Lots of 2002turbo experience since the 80s he would be the one for me to ask, should I ever have a question on any detail. I'd estimate he had somewhere in between 50-100 turbos going through his hands over the years - not only a private enthusiast for himself but also an old car's dealer.

 

If there's any interest here, I can try to follow this project and post here, if there might be a successful outcome. Currently they do have the 3D scans ready and are working on a better alloy (not sure if that's the correct translation / I'm german / "Legierung" is the german word) than the original one, as he has told me.

 

Best regards, Lars.

Hi Lars,

I am certainly interested, I have repaired manifold for my car now, but something new to eventually replace it would be a good idea.

Those seats look a bit puffy to me. Course I’ve never seen brand new ones back in the day. Anyone else has?
