Vitesse 1600 Exhaust Manifold

Darren Groves

Recommended Posts

I'm replacing the exhaust system on a Vitesse 6, Stainless Steel manifold and standard system from Bell via the Club Shop. All went together without too much hassle, the fit was better than I'd thought it would be but the problems started when clamping up the manifolds.


Due to the welds on the Bell manifold being so proud, when you tighten the clamps they don't clamp down evenly (a not very good picture below), so unsurprisingly there's a major air leek and the car runs terrible (as you'd expect)


My gut feeling is to remove the manifold, dress down the welds and refit. But before I take soft disc to a brand new manifold, any other suggestions?
