Buying New Exhaust Manifold

Hello.

Some of you may remember my old post where I found out I had a crack in my exhaust manifold.

Well, I temporarily welded it, and now it is time to replace it as the crack is getting bigger and the sound getting worse.

The crappy thing is that my manifold is connected to my cat and Honda wants something like $650 for an OEM replacement. Looking on ebay, I found an aftermarket one for $180US + shipping/duties. I have posted the link below. My car is a 96 Civic CX Hatch 1.6L. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if this manifold/cat will be okay in my car (and will it pass emissions?).

Also, if anyone knows a place in Canada/Ontario where I can get this for about the same price, I'd love to know. Thanks guys.

I agree with brian and kwikb16a2.. i've heard of the y7's cracking a lot.

Don't go to honda for an OEM exhaust mani+cat. You will most likely find one on sale in the classifieds.

Thanks for the replies! I've never heard of putting y8 on a y7 until now. From what I just googled, it looks like the y7 manifold is separate and I'd also need to buy a y7 cat. Is this true?

I am really looking for my least expensive way out of this for now. Is there any way I can disconnect the manifold I have now from the cat and somehow weld or bolt a new y7 manifold onto the cat? If possible, will it last for at least a year? I'm pretty low on cash right now b/c I'm in school and want to find the cheapest way to fix this thing, but at the same time, not make matters worse.

What is the best budget option? How much would this y8 conversion cost?

Thank you!

Try to find an entire Y8 exhaust. Manifold, cat, midpipe, etc. For $650 from Honda you could buy an entire D16Y8 engine.

Alright, thanks guys. Keep me posted viper . I'll also look around and see what I can find. If anyone has any suggestions as to where to look, that'd be good.

Also, will I see benefits (besides a crack :P) will I see with a d16y8 manifold and cat? What price do you think I'm looking at for the cat, manifold, and 02 extension? Thanks.

That's reasonable! Would it work on my car though? Right now, it is all one piece (cat and manifold as one); so what changes would need to be made? Surely it can't fit the exact same, can it?
