WANTED - NEW or USED factory style Exhaust Manifolds

Postby UV520 » Tue Feb 18, 2020 6:45 pm

Are there NEW factory style exhaust manifolds being made out there?
IF SO - Where?
If NOT - Does anyone have a very good used set that they are willing to sell?

You can see where the outputs are located on the style of factory exhaust manifolds I have.

The Toro manifolds are unique to the model due to FWD space and routing considerations.

I'm not aware of new ones being made. You might look at manifolds for other 455 equipped cars like Cutlass just in case your application can accept a different configuration. Those cars are popular muscle cars so after market performance parts are more readily available.

Those are unique exhaust manifolds used in 66-76 big block Toronado to fit
around the frame, transmission, and oil filter. Possibly 77-78 Toronado would
fit but it was a small block. There are some headers but they take a lot of
space and give off a lot of heat.

The GMC people might have some ideas. Bruce Roe

Hi, I probably have a decent 1970 Toronado set in my piles. The Toronado manifolds are definitely compact log types. Let me know if you're interested and I can dig a set out for your scrutiny.

How long do you think it might take to find them? (I could wait until I have mine removed to be sure. But I believe one or both might be cracked.)
Also, what would you want for a set, if you do have one?

Thanks
Tony

No rush on my part. We still have cold weather and snow on the ground here. And me still without a garage to work in. LOL

I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you,
Tony
