If your old manifolds are the tubular stainless type, I'm potentially interested in buying them. Please could you let me know about condition? When you say they are too low, how far do they hang below the chassis and floor?
If you could take photos before removing them to show 'how low they hang' that would be helpful. No 'double entrendre' intended!
I can take a picture for you no problem, but you have to remember mine is lowered on coilovers, which is why I need shut. On a standard car they were fine, and drove with no worries, so my picture will not show how they sit on a standard.
They are in good nick - one side looks newer than the other, and I have had wrapped since I have owned. Both 3 to 1 stainless steel.
WIll try and get a picture when I am home, then you will probably need to add just over an inch or more I guess.

The knuckles of the branch manifolds sit lower that the pipe running to the back, so only talking minimal achievements here, but running a single pipe either side to my backboxes (as have removed front) from the new manifolds will gain me about half an inch I would say.

Thank you for the photos. With the collectors for the manifold's primary branches under the chassis, it certainly does reduce ground clearance. Sorry, but there are too many speed bumps round here for me to risk it.
