As it says, the manifold on my TZI is cracked as it seems most 205/309 are but you can get a later strengthened one.

Just wondered if they are the same.

As far as I am aware it is different. I have heard the exhaust manifold is at a different angle than on the BX. As far as I'm aware it should screw to the engine, so you might be able to get one & have it altered to fit, but I am not sure.

Hope that helps.
