Manifold:

In most engines, the manifold is an assembly designed to collect the exhaust gas from the cylinder head into one pipe. Manifolds are often made of cast iron and may have material-saving design features that use the least metal as to occupy the least space necessary, or have the lowest production cost.

These design restrictions often result in a design that is cost effective but that does not do the most efficient job of venting the gases from the engine. The manifold by the nature of what they do become extremely hot when the engine is running and touching any part of the exhaust can be extremely dangerous. Some manifolds include the exhaust catalyst as a part of its design.

Engineers who design engine components choose conventional cast iron exhaust manifolds because of superior longer lasting attributes ore than any other type of exhaust outlet design.

Common Faults:

A common fault with a manifold is generally a leaking gasket or cracked manifold. Should a manifold require repair or replacement then complete removal is not always an easy job. There is always the risk that a stud may snap during removal and renewing studs or nuts are a common occurrence.
