Re: Rothe pumping out more and more monsters... (germanrox)

Why did VW put the exhaust manifold at the front of the engine?? I know honduh and others do this, but what's the benefit??
edit: referring to Lupo

dunno why, but i wish we cold, MUCH easier to work on, probbaly better cooling, i'd say the benefit i'd like is the easy access

Honda has switched over to rear exhaust manifold on quite a few cars too, so it cant be that bad of a design.

It's all Rothe's own work.

Yep, HPA is HGP in germany, and they are Rothe's biggest competitor.
