What is this? A quiz? Or are you just too lazy to look at it yourself?
(Dont MAKE me drive all the way there to just read the tranny code dude!)

BASTARD!!! Damn good price if it all had low miles ..... um, I mean KM's
on it!

>can someone tell me which cars i can get dual exhaust manifolds from?
>78-80 roccos/rabbits, right? 

yes, but I dont know if it fits the crossflow head or not. 

>what about diesels? 

yes, same as above.

>do A2 dual manifolds/downpipes fit?

They do not. The A2 manifold is offset and it will run into the shift

Thats exactly what *I* was thinking. Why not go full bore with the swap
and install a set of headers? Sounds appropriate to me. My only question
is how is the exhaust ports configured. Same as the regular 8V heads, or
is it different? Hmm...
