    Ports not round on 2000 TJ 2.5 Dorman exhaust manifold

    Is it necessary for the exhaust manifold to be port matched to the head? I don't remember the previous one being out of round & I've already returned it. Will this be an issue? It's the 4th manifold in 6 years! I'm not sure if that's good or bad given what I've read. I've replaced the...

    Exhaust manifold nightmare (Unsure what do to next)

I had replaced the exhaust manifold with the Banks exhaust manifold type version. It wasn't by Banks but an exact design. Then earlier this year it cracked and I had to...

    2.4 Exhaust Manifold Question

    Hey guys! I've got a 2006 TJ with the 2.4 and a 6 speed. It's got a strange rattle on acceleration. It almost goes away when the engine warms up and it's not near as bad now that the weather is warmer. It was horrible this winter. It'sbeen getting progressively worse overall though and I've been...

    Novak block hugger headers for a Gen III swap?

    advice for replacing exhaust manifold gasket on 05 TJ 4.0

    I need to replace the exhaust manifold gasket on my 05 TJ Wrangler X with the 4.0 6 cyl. The job doesn't look that bad, and I really don't want to pay $400 in labor to have a garage install the $30 gasket. Anyone done this? Anything to be aware of that makes it tricky?
