I meant the Exhaust manifold, it has an integrated catalysator inside, that I need to get rid of. Reckon In the brochure was mentioned direct injection but would not place a bet on this.

I have to ask, what are you trying so hard to achieve that you have to run your jimny with the wrong oil and with parts of the emissions control system missing/removed?

I would delete the catalysators, no brainer too, but cannot find inox manifold on the Ali, or some other place

Cant you just plug the hole when you remove the O2 sensor? And I cannot understand why you would want to do this as it would throw up a raft of errors and effectivly put the car into limp mode

Maybe I should have paid more attention at school but phrases like "la plume de ma tante" sounds more like a conversation opener between a couple of spies.

I don't like the factory stuff, it looks too thin to me, plus I don't trust that Eastern Europe oil company based in Hungary.
Found a catalytic free exhaust manifold for the older 1.3 engine but can't find one for the gen 4th's 1.5.
The typo turned into a conversation starter indeed.

Actually, I want to get rid of what's inside. I hope this will improve the exhaust flow, plus read a story or two somewhere for ceramic particles that did their way to the cylinder.

Try Viper Performance in South Africa.

I was looking at a YouTube video a few nights back and the Jimny in the video was fitted with a "perfomance exhaust" from Viper, a long tube header with no catalytic converter, the first O2 sensor mounted under the floor roughly where the second O2 sensor would be, and the second O2 sensor mounted a little further back in an extended O2 bung so that it wouldn't cause a CEL.

The header also didn't have provision for EGR...

Here's the video...

Firstly what is wrong with Hungary or indeed its oil?

Secondly I have done several hundred thousand miles in my my 5 jimny over the last 15 to 20 years all with the oil specified by suzuki and all with no problems and on the highest mileage engine when it was opened up for other reasons there was virtually no wear visible at 113500 miles and its still on the road with a different owner.

Thirdly in all the time I have had my jimny I have never felt that there is a great need for more power simply because the standard chassis handling dynamics will put you in a ditch. Not that you can't make a jimny faster because I have done that but I did it by improving the suspension, brakes and tyres so it was able to take full advantage of the available power and that one was honestly too fast for the road it only really made sense on track days.
