So yesterday when I was about to go out sailing, after about 5 mins of running, my Exhaust blew out... stop engine right a way, and rinse off the salt water with fresh to make sure no salt stayed on engine...
Im not 100 Sure on the part name, but I try to explain the prob.
The U Bend pipe that leave the exhaust manifold and goes up around and down, and then connects to the rest of the exhaust where the water and air meet, is what looks like broke... (see photo)
I have been quoted around $400-$500 for a new pip to be crafted and put in...
What I was wondering is this about the right price? and also is there anyway I could maybe get the pipe crafted out of galvanized steel instead of Brass or anyways to bring the cost down a bit? Just wondering....
Or is there another way of running it, Or does anyone in the Seattle Area, have a Dead A4 they might wanna sell that part if its the same or anything.
I have a photo of the break, but doesn't really show you the exact part I need so I drew a quick picture to explain it.
Any info would b awesome, need the boat up and running for my parents arrival from england on the 22nd
Thanks in advance.
