Default length of Ninja manifold vs Werks 2058

I'm running a Werks\ b6 on an mbx6. The pipe sits out kind of far and rubs the body. I was thinking of getting the ninja header but didn't know if or how much shorter it is than the 2058 header. wanted to get the Novarossi long Mugen manifold but couldn't find it in stock. Think the 5058 can with a manifold that's about 61mm long on the inside curve and 101mm on the outside curve measured by sticking a ziptie scrap through the header and measure. I know it's been discussed before but I didn't see anyone mention how close in size the manifold's designed for the mbx6 are to the Werks. Thanks

take the header off and size up a deep socket in each end, make sure they fit tight. squeeze the 2 sockets together and re fit the header, do a little bit at a time the header will bend easily. did it on a few cars and it works perfectly.

Lol, I'm always telling the guys that ask on the forum to just do that but no one seems to believe me. It's a cinch to do and frankly makes it pointless to buy a new manifold.

the 2058 header is 4 spring and the mugen is 3 i bealive, so it would have been modded anyways.

glad it worked well.

99% sure we learned that trick from ron's werks thread, would have never thought the header would bend that easily
