As you can see I have bought a new 2 piece exhaust manifold for my '84 ur. The number of the old manifold was: 035 129 591 CE. My Audi dealer said that the electronic parts catalog said : part has been deleted, take the 2-piece manifold 034 129 591 AC (3 stud piece) and 034 129 592 (2 stud piece). But mounting the downpipe on the KKK 26 is really a problem when. Please see the photos.
The Problem: The slot that holds the 2 pieces of the manifold together prevents the downpipe from slipping in the turbo studs.
I did the following to solve the prob:
- open the nuts that hold the turbo to the manifold, mount the downpipe to the turbo and fix everything.
- bend the downpipe about 7mm on the appropriate places.
Original exhaust pipe with stainless ends
The end of the exhaust pipe have been covered with stainless steel ends, look much better now than before. The original ones had always a rusty look.
