  1. Exhaust manifold won't fit. Help please.

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi all. Long time reader but never needed to post much until now. My 2004 AXD Shuttle is getting a new turbo and exhaust manifold fitted. Both parts supplied by Darkside.

  2. AXD Exhaust manifold removal

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi all, Can the exhaust manifold actually be removed leaving the turbo/exhaust in place? All the manifold removal threads I've read involve turbo removal, but no one explains why, unless, of course it's because they are swapping the turbo/replacing the turbo oil gasket as well. I can see the...

  5. Help with noise from engine please

    Engine & Gearbox
    Evening guys - need a spot of advice please if you don't mind. Our 130bhp 2.5 2007 is making a loud popping noise through the outlet manifold. This gets louder when the hose is taken off the egr so that's obviously muffling it a bit. Our regular garage are a bit stumped as she seems to be...

    Engine & Gearbox

  10. How common is a cracked manifold?

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hey, Got a ticking coming from the engine now. Worse case the manifolds cracked - best case I just need a new gasket. Probably a stupid question, but what is the likely hood of the manifold being cracked anyone, is it a common occurrence on a T4? Should the most costly outcome be a cracked...
