Thanks guys.. Bill you can get maybe a exhaust gasket from the ordinary non-crossflow and see it it sorta lines up maybe?

Don't know if anybody is using the 8V 2 Point Slow but have a feeling the spacing and bolt holes maybe be same..

Both exhaust flanges are the same on all 8V vw engines from the 80/90's .. the only difference is the ABA (2.slow) block is 18 or 19mm taller than the 1.8 block

Does that mean I could use a mk3 header aswell?

Could.. i can't remember which way you can go... the 19mm difference is enough it might rub on the steering rack. There are some companies out there (TT) that make down pipes to fit on an aba or the hot shit mk4 2.slow factory tubular manifold in an earlier car.

Reach out to your local vw community, some people probably have headers sitting around and maybe they'll let you try them out for fitment

For reference, I have an ABA in my mk2 and some sort of aftermarket header with no name visible on it.
