Exhaust manifold MK4 / MK5

Can the exhaust manifolds from a MK4 3.5l be used on a MK5 3.5 l engine?

Hi Ronald, Yes they are perfectly compatible! Cheers Darryl

If you are buying from an unknown source, be aware the 2.5 and 3.5 manifolds look very similar but are not the same.
Here is a 3.5, parts C484 & C485

Here is a 2.5, parts C659 & C660

Thanks Rob,
I understand that there is a difference between 2.5 and 3.5 manifolds, but is there a difference between Mk4 and MK5 manifolds?

They are the same part numbers, so apparently no difference.
