My first thought was one bank of a WR16 (I have never seen the details) or maybe some straight eight from a coach. I did look through about 1000 exhaust manifolds on the German Ebay site before giving up.

Did PSA use this idea in just the one engine?

AFAIK they used this style header just for the MI16-headed derivative engine going into the Citroen cars. The original Peugeot Mi16 had a header that just merged right outside the head.

It's pretty cool. It would be interesting to hear from Peugeot and Citroen engineers.

I wanted one spare as they are prone to leak in the collector welds. Pic was taken after re-welding and painting. Late Mi 16 has iron block, is a 2.0 litre and has a more regular type exhaust manifold, maybe that's what you are thinking about ?
Yes, it's that one I was thinking about, I have that original "regular" header here too.. :)

As mentioned the header is from pug MI16 engine also used in citroen bx 16v. This is the ali engine 1905 cc and the later iron block was 1998 cc which had a different header. I used to have a 16v bx- great sleeper in the day :D

More horses from Maniflow Header, longer/larger tracts too, the stock item was designed to fit very close to thje rear of the block, to allow for tight fit inside engine bay, Alloy Mi16 uses two separate exhaust ports per cylinder where as the Iron Version uses conventional Single siamesed exhaust port, But both heads share the same shaped Inlet port. The Engine is a very popular Mod to fit in the 205 Gti Here in UK for rallying at club level.
