Thanks Neil - I would never had tackled this without all the encouragement from you lot...

I should have taken more pictures, to show the steps in more detail - but honestly, if anyone doing this needs more pictures, maybe they should think twice about doing it...

Yes, that's right. Scrambling your ambitions with your abilities can be both costly and hazardous!

Awesome Wayne!! Glad to hear you got it sorted! How long did the manifold part of the job take you? What’s the weight difference between manifolds? Imagine the old one is pretty light!

(And if you’re anything like me, you have plans to take lots of photos, then just end up getting stuck in to get the job done!)

The old manifold might be 1500g, the new one is more like 4000g. Big difference. *edit* just weighed old manifold - 3000g - a bit more than my estimate of 1500g!! So not such a big difference after all...

I reckon it took about 2.5 hours remove the old manifold and install the new one. But this is with all the prep done before-hand (removing the Tupperware...), i.e. it took 2.5 hours from undoing the first manifold stud to torquing down the last one.

Add another hour to find the one sodding (new) manifold nut I dropped...

Regarding the carbon on the heat shield, it may not all be from manifold cracks. I noticed a number of the old manifold gaskets show signs of "blow-by", especially the outlet to the turbine. Next time you are changing the air filter element, re-torque all your manifold nuts/bolts. Might be the main cause for the carbon build up.

Yeah, more work, less photos....

Follow-up on this job, a week later.

Car is running sweetly, still very smooth and quiet (didn't realise how noisy it had gotten..), boost is coming on much earlier than before. Turbo whistle is more noticeable when the engine is cold but I can't really hear it at all once the engine is up to operating temps.

Fuel economy is better too, by abut 5%.

No errors in INPA regarding glow plugs etc. DIS does report an IKE Electronic Braking Force Distribution issue (but INPA doesn't) but I think this is a phantom issues related to a transient low voltage condition.

Overall, I'm VERY happy with the result. I'll recheck the torque on the manifold nuts and turbo bolts at the next oil service, which will include a air filter change, in about 8,000km time.

I have it all to do. My new manifold has been sitting looking at me for a few months now, and waiting for me to get the bottle to do it.

It'll be worth it...
Mine was a lot worse than I could see until I took it off...
