My MKI 1.7 has a single downpipe...
My other MKI had a dual downpipe...

Re: 1.8 exhaust manifold (CanadianCabby)

Getting lots of different answers here..
MKII 1.8 manifold will not fit...?
But, a 1.8 Cabby manifold will?

A machine shop should be able to get those out for you, if you don't have the tools.

What ppl are saying is it will fit the head, but the downtube will contact the firewall if you use a MKII manifold.
I am using a manifold from a MKI 1.7l (with dual down tube) on my 1.8l motor and head.. it bolts right up and it isn't very restrictive. Find a mk1 manifold!
