Exaust manifold

Does anyone know if the GT exaust manifold can be found on other Opels?

Thanks

Same exhaust manifold from 1968 to 1973, all models, (1.5 and 1.9 litre CIH engines) including the Kadett, GT, Ascona (1900 in the U.S.) and Manta. The 1974 and 1975 models (I have been told) have a slightly different version (the "Sprint") without the "heat stove" that the intake manifold absorbs heat from, which is actually more desirable since it flows better.

1975 only, those cars had fuel injection. 1974 Opels still had the Solex carb and the 'normal' exhaust manifold. There was also the 1968-1972 Rekord Sprint, but those cars were never imported into North America.

I stand corrected. By the man who doesn't sleep. Um, what's happening at 3:04 in the morning, Bob?

So, the "Sprint" manifold, which is so highly sought after, was installed in the '68-'72 Rekord Sprint? And was it the same design during all of those years? Now I understand the origin of the name (I think).

I saw this picture on the classicopels site, where it was called a "Sprint" manifold (downloaded by Ruediger, so I guess it was a "German" manifold from a Rekord). There was another photo referred to as "Otto's modified '75 FI Sprint manfold" (which I will post below). Are they the same, or were there differences between the "Sprint" and FI manifold?

*****Um, it's 10:04 where I'm at when I posted that, not 3:04!
Yes, the Rekord Sprint and 1975 FI 'Sprint' manifold are the same. It does appear that Otto ground the webs away on his manifold.
