87 325is exhaust manifolds different thsan other years?
On the 87 325is the PO let it run like crap wasting the cat. This is a 100% original vehicle.
I ordered a Magnaflow cat / down pipe system that is a "direct fit bolt in" part part # 23554.
The first system had the front flange rotated 9 1/4 degrees out of alignment of the studs on the manifolds, sent it back and got another one shipped. This time the rear flange is rotated 9 degrees out of alighment.
Called Magnaflow tech, was told they used a standard 325is vehicle to make up their jig and exhaust system i'm the first one to ever complain about not fitting.
Was told I must have a odd and different exhaust manifolds, what a crock of chit.
has anyone run across this kind of problem with Magnaflow?
I always thought they had a good quality product, this may be true but their jigs or fixtures
are something that needs attention unless an employee doesn't give a damn.
