tell me the truth!

i read in FAQ's about the spacer that has to be fitted in order for exhaust to fit when doing 1242 conversion!

it says 15 mm but i talked to a guy on another forum who done the conversion and he said its 8mm????????

so which one is it? and dont tell me the third size! lol

and any one got old gasket u dont need from sporting manifold to front pipe?

Re: tell me the truth!

TBH anything in that region should be sufficient. There really isn't one set thickness.

Re: tell me the truth!

Re: tell me the truth!

not really... your sump will be lower
when i first did my 1242 i fitted / bodged on a punto 75manifold and header (its a better 4-2-1 system) THEN i bought a cento supersprint 4-2-1 manifold and forgot about the 1242 been taller but it JUST fitted. i meen its so close im sure its splitting attoms on the sump

so im guessing you could really fit a couple of extra gaskets and it will be ok... cant really say tho
