Hi there,

Replacing the exhaust manifold will not involve getting tied up with the ECU. I don't have any info to hand on your car, but the only thing is if the O2 sensor is in the manifold you will need to unplug and remove it and at 80,000 mls it well may be due for replacement any way. Make sure you fit new gaskets and seals as required and just be careful not to break a stud in the head if fitted.

Hi there,

I don't have any technical info on your car, but if it is a standard type mounting system, Just support the rear of the gearbox, before removing any cross member and mount and you should not have a problem.
