    Default Best place to get manifold

    I have decided to just get all the parts needed to do my swirl valve issue. Does any one know where i can get the manifold and related parts from other than main dealer?
    I have been to vauxhall this morning and been quoted £660 for: Inlet manifold, Gaskets, solenoid thing for swirl bar, timing belt kit and water pump.
    Does that sound about right or are they pulling my pants down?

    £600 is actually quite good tbh.

    if it is something you want to try yourself - check how2 first - then Autovaux is the place I would go.

    Why are you thinking of changing the swirl valve actuator ?

    Run engine and look at No3 swirl valve

    If if pulses side to side when engine is revved up and down

    Then actuator is fine

    I have changed many of these manifolds and I have NEVER had the need to fit a new actuator

    I would get it done if the car is on high mileage. If the rod has been off for a while due to the 3rd flap being jammed it have put stress on the drive module. Mine wasn't changed and that was at 93k when the manfiold was swapped out. Overall not needed but it could go.

    £209 inc Vat for Inlet and Gasket from LMF. I'm on 47k miles so didn't get the actuator or timing belt kit or water pump.

    Edit : And that was yesterday. If you are VAT registered you can get it for £35 less.

    £169 from a Vx dealer selling on ebay, or £10 more if you want the gasket as well:
