    Pinto manifold

    Anyone know which Ashley 4 branch manifold is closest to a pinto block Escort or Capri ? Or is there any other manifolds I can look for ?

    Re: Pinto manifold

    escort and capri manifolds are slightly different, but they will both run the same distance from the block,

    what are you trying to do?

    I'm putting a pinto in a Ford Thames but the exhaust is going to be tight, I remember someone years ago said there was a manifold that was tight to the block

    Re: Pinto manifold

    I have a Pinto 4 into 1 ex manifold somewhere, if I can find it I'll take some measurements. From what I can remember it did n't look as though it would run too close to the inner wing and chassis. I bought it to go on a Pinto Rally engine but decided on the Group 2 Ashley 4-2-1 one after a lot of consultation.

    actually unless you have a mad cam the rs manifold is quite good, even a standard sierra twin downpipe jobbie is quite good.

    There is only a very small chance you can make this cam work, even in a race engine. You need a very serious head or it will be a full "negative" power engine.

    About manifold, only the big bore Ashley will release the full power of this cam/engine combination (in case you really got the right head). You can skip all other options.

    OK, if on twin Webers, that's where these cam's can be used for. And your intention is oval or hot rod racing?

    Re: Pinto manifold

    The 4 into 1 four branch manifold for a Pinto that I have measures approx 190 mm from the cylinder head flange to the out pipes if that makes any sense.
