Exhaust manifold flip???

Hey all sorry if this is a dumb question or is posted elsewhere but i have the 5.2 v8 and was wondering if i can take the exhaust manifolds and flip em up side down in order to put the exhaust thru the hood???



It takes BIG plans to do BIG things.

to answer your question, i dont think the bolts would line up. and further more, i dont think the flanges have enough angle to come thru the hood, unless you made some twisty stacks for it.

Reliability is relative

I dont know if they will match up correctly, but I would be concerned that the angle would put it to close to the firewall...I guess it would depend on your application..

He's got the 5.2 so my bet is on demo derby. That would be quite the sight

Just looking at the exhaust manifold gaskets on RockAuto I don't think you can. The bolt pattern and the port outlines are asymmetrical. Just thinking about the ZJ engine compartment I think they'd hit the firewall anyway as mentioned above. You could probably just weld a tight 270 degree bend and add some straight pipe to get the exhaust up along the side of the header if you want it through the hood. Or just buy some cheap block huggers and cut the pipes, flip, and reweld upside down. Maybe drop a junkyard turbo on top of each stack and ditch the whole hood

Make sure you get the little metal flappers so that water doesn't get in when it rains, and you get to hear the "ting ting ting" at idle.

I'd spray some ether down in all the pipes before you drive it so you can shoot flames
