Same exhaust manifold for civic & 1.6EL?

Hey Guys,

My bro needs to replace the exhaust manifold on his 1.6EL, just wondering if they are the same with civics and which years?. Or is there a specific motor the manifold has to come from? And how much do they usually range? Thanks for the help in advance.

The 1.6el is the more classy 'civic' from acura so I belive it has the d16z6 as a standard engine.

The exhaust manifold from a d16z6 civic will work...but some d-series exhaust manifolds from 96+ civics had the cat. converter right below the exhaust runners, as opposed to having the cat. converter under the car.

1.6el's have d16y8's not z6s.

96+ civic si's have the cat under the car.. the dx's don't.

It's the same as a 1996-2000 Honda Civic Si in Canada, or the 1996-2000 Honda Civic EX in the States.
As for price, is he looking to go aftermarket or just to replace the stock header? Stock header should be around $50. Aftermarket is a different story because it depends on brand and quality. Should range from $200-$400 for the usual stuff though.

What year is the 1.6El? Cause the 2000 si civic had tubular headers oppose to the ones found in 96-99 civic si.

^^ thanks for the info, LOL they should just call it a header with a downpipe then. Cause i was thinking it was like a intake manifold. So i'll need one for the d16y8 right? If its just a regular stock header, is it really that expensive around $200-400?.

What happens if my brother keeps the one on there still because its cracked?.

Depends on how bad the crack is. If its small, you can run with and take a small hit in fuel economy. If its large, best bet is to replace it.

I got a y8 stock exhaust manifold if you want one. pm me with an offer.. no cracks or major rust.

I definately wouldn;t recommend leaving the exhaust manifold there even if there is only a "small" crack. An exhaust leak is a lose of power, can throw off o2 signals, give a sluggish feeling, etc.
