Believe FCPGroton may sell one that will fit your car...did you not mean '93? In the U.S. 850's began in '93, but then again, maybe '92 in Europe and Sa<p>The following is for '94 and up so you'll have to give them a call or an email for your specific model: <br><A HREF="http://www.fcpgroton.com/csv70/volvo850sv70manifold.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.fcpgroton.com/csv70...d.htm</A><p>A cracked exhaust will affect readings from your 02 sensors and ultimately CAT Converter operations so yes, it will have some effect on your mileage, not to mention possible rough driving conditions.
