Someone practically gave me a rev hard cast iron b16 turbo t3 exhaust manifold. It looks perfect. He had it on a b18 that he is going radical with.

It looks fine, went over it with a ruler to see if any warp and none. Do I need to have it "decked" to ensure it is flat since it is used?

Also can these be coated in any way to not look so ugly?

Yea, you can jet-hot coat it... there is a shop here locally that does it, i'm sure there is one within a reasonable distance of you that can do the ceramic coating.

As for the warpage, if it straight-edges out fine, it should be ok, but if you need to, or want to , find someone with a large belt sander, and have them refinish the flanges to make them flat again. Most machine shops have HUGE belt sanders made for this, but a small manifold doesn't need much more than one large enough to fit the full flange flat on (don't use one smaller than the largest flange you're wanting to surface) ;)

As long as its not TOO warped, bolting it to the head with a new gasket should be fine.

Best thing to do is powder coat it black or silver, or bright pink, if you prefer! :lol:
Pink is actually what I was looking for. How did you know.
Actually will powder coat hold up under the heat?

'round these parts, it costs about $140 to have a 4-6 cylinder in-line manifold done... Sounds like they are quoting you for a set of V8 headerS... which over here, cost $220 to have done. Maybe just remind them that it is ONE small 4-cylinder manifold 8)
