I was wondering if I had the early 2000 manifold. My car was built in 01/00, and the VIN number says it's number 165,xxx built. I was reading that the numbers VIN build begins at 100,000, so would that make my car number 65,xxx? It was built in Mexico.
should have it man...think april was the cut off on those manis....look down in there and at the runners...if their smooth lookin and nor 'mushed' w/a seems around both sides of the mani...then thats it...lemme dig up those pix of each 4 u.
The runners look very smooth, more so then I thought they would. There is a seam, but it's very thin and the only way to seperate the peice in half would be to cut it. This seam runs along the middle of the tubes, not on the front (as referenced in the pictures below).
what i meant by seam, was a big fat 1 all the way up and down each runner....all i can think of 2 explain it is the meat of a whopper stickin out from the bun all the way around....that kinda seam...not the small line/etch on the runner where they were joined (if u have that, thats good!).
