Researched that too, but it sounded like that's temporary, as the welded manifolds crack again within a relatively short period of time. There's probably a "right" way to weld it, though I don't know which local welder would be willing to do the weld and which would be able to do it "right". It'd probably be enough to smog this time around, but then I expect I'd have to deal with the same issue again next time.

For someone that has the time & inclination, that'd be a reasonable way to go.

Did it fail the visual or is it throwing a code or not passing the sniffer?

It is not passing the sniffer. The smog tech pointed out the crack in the manifold after the sniffer test failed. No codes though.

For the record, my JB-Weld seems to have been a complete failure. The exhaust was hitting the heat shield immediately.

Yea JB weld isn't going to cut it for that......

Take the manifold completely off,remove the cat/o2 and take it to a welders shop.

I believe standard practice for welding cast (Im pretty sure) includes heating up the cast metal to a certain temperature then laying down the bead/filler.

If you need a welder lmk I know a stand up guy in TX that worst case you could ship it too.
After being properly welded properly it'll be stronger than factory.

At least that's how the 90+ volvo turbo manifolds are that I'm more familiar with.



Best of luck,cool car.

I am not understanding. The part numbers of the 49 state and the CA version are exactly the same. Also, there are numerous threads on this site confirming that the only differences between CA and federal versions of the VX are the O2 sensor, the ECU, and the wiring harness. Therefore the original poster could have replaced with a used exhaust manifold from anywhere in the country. Or not?
