    ...I installed mine backwards (NORS)and have wired it "open" so as to get some flow through the pass exhaust pipes (duals)......I don't notice any problems and I drove this vehicle up till Dec in 30-40 degree temps...Now is the time to decide which way to go. You'll need the base as a spacer if only replacing the manifold.

    The one on my 63 Lark is missing. I have had no problems driving in the cold. It just takes a little longer to warm up.

    I discarded mine on my '55, Ohio, don't drive it in 30 degree weather, don't notice any problems.

    hello.....i am having a cracked exh manifold replaced on my pass side. the mechanic noticed that the spring-operated heat riser was disconnected by a prev. owner.
    he said we can hook it up or not, and that maybe you people here would have informed opinions about whther it is necessary in moderate SF Bay Area climate conditions.

    thanks in advance for any wisdom imparted.
