Default Rear Manifold

Finally got my camera back again and here is the long awaited shots of the rear exhaus manifold, collector opening for the 3800 "C" engine. The top shot shows the cutout as it came from the factory with an effective opening if about a inch and a half. The bottom show is after burning a stone (about 20 minutes with a die grinder) on the cut-out. I figure the effective opening is now in the 2" range, the same as the crossover pipe.

(somebody please tell me what I am doing wrong.)

I sure hope this was taken care of before 93....

Nice work! I've seen this before from a member here, and he purchased a new one. Hows the car now?
