Default Ported Exhaust Headers

Am I able to get some of these somewhere for a Bonne?

And would it be worth it with stock internals for now?

the PEMs will work for you, all you need is to get a different trans dipstick

Hold on a minute. Not necessarily true. There are differences between manifolds from year to year and MODEL TO MODEL. Make DAMN sure they'll fit before you buy them.

I posted some trivia some time ago about the sheer number of exhaust manifold part numbers from 92-99. Wanna know how many? I'll have to look it up We lost that post in the big crash a couple years back. Anyway it was something like 12 or 13 different part numbers from 92-99 ALONE.

Check your PM'* Twister. You don't need to spend 300 bucks or so on manifolds.

The diffrent dip stick is for headers.

Hey Bill. My PEM'* came off a SC'ed car(don't know which make) and they fit no problems.
WPI can port you a set, I've heard that he does very good work. Otherwise there are a bunch of guys over at CGP that also do it.

I have a WPI front mani and it'* of good quality.
The ports are nice and smooth and the black high temp coating that it came with is holding up stong for 4-5 months now.

And be ware of the diffrent rear manifolds, i found out the hard way that they are all not the same. The DP flange was different from the mani flange, and i've read stories about the location of the flange varying from right to left too.

I had to get a new DP and got ripped off.
It'* cool though, i'm getting headers this summer

This is EXACTLY what I was talking about. Be careful!
