I just bought a back box for my 1.2 Nova but the connection to the centre piece of the exhaust is much larger on the back box than the centre pipe, is this because the back box was for a GTE?
Is it possible to buy the manifold and centre section for a GTE and use it on my 1.2?
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?
yep, you could get a nova gte manifold, downpipe, and center section and it would fit right on your 1.2
Will give you a little more performance aswell, because of the 4-2-1 style manifold and downpipes, plus its a bigger system as youve found out
I wouldn't have expected the GTE manifold to bold straight on! Does it really, thats pretty handy!
yep bolts straight on, the exhaust ports in both the 1.2 and gte heads are the same (1.2 carb anyway, dunno if 1.2 injection is any different, shouldnt be).
On my old 1.2 nova I had a GTE manifold, downpipe and GTE janspeed exhaust, all fitted no probs
Does anyone have a GTE Exhast for sale? Dont want the backbox just the others.
I have just been on the phone to an exhaust supplier and aparantly there are only 3 sections?
1. Manifold/Down pipe
2. Center Piece
Is this correct?
My 1.2 Has a seperate monifold and downpipe?
the manifold and downpipe are seperate items.
center section exhaust
you will also need the gaskets, one for manifold to engine, one between the manifold and downpipe, and if you need it one between the downpipe and exhaust.
