The Y-pipe to be fitted the rite way.. as stated in the A/C shop manuel is to install with the cylinders loose.. tighten Y-pipe first then cylinders.. this way the cylinders square off to the y-pipe.. then tighten cylinders down to the case..

But Im thinking this.. if you loosen the cylinders to install the Y-pipe your going to ruin the gaskets and it will leak.. so whats rite or wrong ?? hahahaha

The first only applies to a eng. assy. point of view..


But its what I found.. :div20:

I'm thinking that came from the engine re-build section by the wording. IMO,never, ever loosen cyls to install new y-pipe. If your y-pipe was that far off, perhaps you should call the place that sold it to you ,and ask for another to be sent. If your left with what you have, try to have an engine guy in your area hand grind to match, major engine components do not get tuned to what is actually an accesssory item. Hope that helps

Do NOT loosen your cylinders to install the y-pipe. If it doesn't fit, send it back for exchange, or file the holes to make it fit. It could be the wrong one (zr9?) or it could be defective. Loosening the cylinders will not ruin the gaskets, but it will cause coolant to leak into the crankcase, forcing you to remove the cylinders completely, to clean out the coolant.

I was in the process of building my engine but didn't do it tell after I got the cylinders and head and everythign tightned back down. There are sleaves on 2 bolts on each cylinder for centering it all up and they seem like a farely tight fit so I can't imagine you would move it much even if you did loosen the bolts. I would say they might just have some production problems but like I said earlier mine fit good and looked clean on the inside.
