Re: 4 branch manifold advice

As I understand it you have 3 options

1. Use the standard cinq exhaust and have a 15mm spacer plate made between manifold and downpipe
2. Buy a CSC cinq manifold and adapt as above
3. Buy a Supersprint Punto manifold and adapt the cat/exhaust to fit

When I was looking at 1242 for mine, option 2 looked best.

10mm will fit, but 15mm is ideal.

nice one i think i go with option 3 buying chinq one and adjusting the length on all four pipes will affect the manifold as it is probably tuned to that length

Re: 4 branch manifold advice

I would opt for the Punto manifold and adapt the cat fitment. You are right on the tuned length.
