Exhaust Manifolds & Components

Manifold Gaskets, Studs & Nuts, Combination Manifolds/Converters

The gases that are produced by your car's engine can be highly dangerous – both to your engine itself and to the people in the cabin of the vehicle. If these fumes make their way into the passenger area of the car, they are poisonous and can even kill. Generally, exhaust fumes are released through the exhaust pipe into the open air, but if your exhaust system is faulty, these gases can leak into the engine compartment or even the cabin.

We aim to provide our customers with the finest Exhaust Manifolds & Components the industry can offer, which is why we accept no compromise when it comes to the quality. Created by the most reputable names in the industry, such as Dorman, Mopar, Omix-Ada the Exhaust Manifolds & Components we've gathered for you feature precise design and everlasting durability.

The exhaust manifold gathers and consolidates all of the exhaust fumes from each of your engine's individual cylinders ready for them to be passed out of the car through the exhaust pipe. Because of the fumes in the manifold, it is one of the most dangerous places for a leak to occur, so it is important to ensure your exhaust manifold isn't corroded and leaking gas, and that the gasket connecting it to the exhaust pipe is airtight.

Exhaust manifolds consist of a set of pipes, one for each cylinder on the specific engine they are used with, which connect to the cylinders and receive the exhaust fumes from them. These fumes then pass into one large central pipe within the manifold, where they are consolidated. This pipe is connected to the exhaust pipe where the fumes are released. The join between the exhaust manifold and exhaust pipe is sealed and kept leak-free by the exhaust gasket. Exhaust manifolds differ in size and structure depending on the car and engine size.

The main things that can go wrong with the exhaust manifold on your car are the exhaust gasket wearing out or loosening, which can be resolved by replacing the gasket, and corrosion in the manifold's pipes. The pipes on the exhaust manifold can be eaten away by rust, and this is a particular problem when you live or do a lot of driving in areas with salty air. Any problems with the exhaust manifold that lead to fumes escaping are very serious, because the fumes can damage the engine and also escape into the passenger compartment where they can make people seriously ill, or even kill them.

Signs that your exhaust manifold and the surrounding structures need to be checked can include a decline in engine performance, or any unusual sounds coming from the exhaust system. Obviously, any signs of leaking exhaust fumes also indicate a very serious problem that you will need to attend to immediately, and before driving your car again. If the exhaust manifold has corroded areas and these are causing the leaks, the only solution is to replace the manifold with a new one. In other cases, you may just need a new exhaust gasket.

Headers are installed because the stock exhaust manifolds usually flow poorly. An exhaust header has individual tubes for each exhaust port, allowing each exhaust pulse to flow unobstructed from the cylinder head. The tubes on headers are usually larger in diameter than the runners on an exhaust manifold and the tubes are mandrel bent for gradual radius bends.
