Mopar Action On-line – Tech Questions
Donald Hineman, Camp Caldwell, IRAQ, 1973 Plymouth Satellite 318
Stationed In Iraq with U.S. Army. Want to replace existingolder exhaust manifolds with new ones. Will the current generation ofMopar/Chrysler 5.2 – 5.9 exhaust manifolds fit my 1973 era engine? I want tokeep a fairly stock, but newer appearance in my car.
My Thanks: SSG Hinemanwith the 101st Airborne Division in Iraq.
The manifolds will fit the engine fine, and be a significant performanceincrease, too. The only fly in the ointment is the steering column – bothit, and the Magnum manifold, want to occupy the same space. So the bestavailable combination of factory manifolds would be a Magnum on the rightside, and a stock ’68-70 340 on the left. With a custom exhaust (2.5″, orwhatever similar metric size they have in Iraq) would be the way to go.
