2011 FK3 (registered in 2012) Haven't even got the suspension sorted out yet and now the manifold has cracked. I thought that the facelift models came from factory with the revised manifold but here we are. Does anyone know where I can source a high quality aftermarket replacement? Was contemplating rather getting a stainless off the shelf upgrade (not for performance but for reliability and ease of repair) but I'm not finding anything online and can't afford the downtime to have one fabricated. So any suggestions and links for a good quality replacement will be greatly appreciated. I haven't figured out yet where the other South African 2.2 owners source their parts yet because everyone I contact doesn't carry stock of anything specific to the diesel.

I haven't had to source anything major yet, but Honda will import the OEM part for you - at a price, of course. I've had prompt quotations from Honda Bedfordview's parts department. Your best bet might be a crashed Civic at one of the spares yards in Pretoria (not sure where you are); you'll have to be quick, though - the engine is often first to go.

Sadly i think the options are limited for aftermarket upgrades, i personally haven't seen any. I have a pre facelift and the manifold was cracked. I managed to negotiate with Honda and they paid for the part, but sadly i had to pay labor. Other users have been lucky and the whole job was covered under Honda warranty.

I would just change the manifold for the later design under warranty if possible, otherwise they are pretty cheap second hand. It can be quite a long job to replace.
