I'll try and get some more pics over the weekend, you may notice that I haven't put the chrome trim on the grill yet as i'm not sure whether to paint it. The mesh was brought off ebay its a black plastic mesh so no problems with stone chipping.
I cut all ot the centre fins out of a standard...
I have another equal lenght manifold to test and seeing as I have just put my car back together I wondered if anyone local to me(Bracknell, Berkshire) Had a head sitting in there garage I could test fit this manifold to?
I have just put my manifold back on and its a cast iron jobbie, so I doubt anything is wrong with it. It is most likely one of you heat sheilds down the back of the engine bay hitting the downpipe, I say this as I had my downpipe off also and I can't see what could have gone wrong with yours.
