Sports cat manifold

Recommended Posts

Don't know where to post this but please move if it's in the wrong section. I bought a lovely stainless steel sports cat off eBay in January last year more specifically this one:- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FIESTA-08-1-2-1-4-1-6-200CPI-STAINLESS-STEEL-SPORTS-CAT-EXHAUST-MANIFOLD/121123095280?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D45730%26meid%3Dc0465048ac3b42638846f86a664b049c%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D390607245626&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851 

...At the sum of £200, however I didn't fit it until August 2016. Coming back from Ford Fair this year I noticed a strange noise coming from the front exhaust area. Getting under the car I find a nice crack in my lovely new manifold which is causing a blow. The crack has developed along the middle of the weld between the cat and the downpipe. I've emailed the seller asking for advice and they have basically told me to do one and are not remotely interested. Considering it is stainless steel, the car has done roughly 4,000 miles i wouldn't expect such a failure to occur.  

Has anyone actually got one of these manifolds fitted to their cars? And any advice on what I can do if anything? DSCF2262.thumb.JPG.fe2adfe73ebdb2d21664965d0878b32d.JPG

Find a local custom exhaust place and get them to weld it. Chances are the crack has been there since it was welded in the first place.
