My exhaust on the SE5a has cracked near the U bend at the front and close to completely falling off, is it possible buy this section anymore or does it have to be made up? Ideally would need to replace the whole lot it be a far better job, the car starts and runs fine but just unable to drive it anywhere with the noise

You can buy short,flexible weld-in sections from places like Burton Power, Car-builder Solutions, etc. Obviously you need a welder,and need to measure the diameter before ordering.

I have an "odd" pair of se5a manifolds, one short 3 branch and one long,
I can look to see if the long one is the RHS,

£50? plus post.

remembered to find it out, the LH side is the long branch one, the RH side is a short one, but someone has tried to weld it, and blown a hole in it,
