    Default Inlet manifold/drive actuator replaced!WOW!

    I now have my new inlet manifold and drive actuator fitted and car is now driving like a dream, no more smoke and miles better fuel consumption.

    I got the old ones back from mechanic and the drive actuator is fine to use but not sure about the manifold. Is there anything i can do (modification wise) to bring the old one back to life or is it just a case of binning it????

    Thoughts please as i dont know what to do with them....

    Why would you want to mate...? Assuming it's an old one and you've fitted a modified one, no-one would want a secondhand old one - if they were going to replace theirs they would buy a new one to start with...

    Just a thought. I know some People on here are into their engines and just thought there might be some scope for modification. Not to worry. I'll just bin them if they no good. Cheers

    That's a thought actually - there were people looking at trying to blank off the extra holes completely as is done with it in the fiat version of the engine (I think), so it's not as silly as it first sounds. It's just such a ball-ache to remove it as I found out when I did mine...
