Well it's be quite a while, but I've finally got some new stuff to post.  The complete new exhaust system is now finished.  This includes custom 4 into 2 into 1 race style Headers leading into a 3" dual system with X-pipe, custom mufflers and finishing off with Vibrant Exhaust Tips.  All in Purge TIG welded 304 Stainless Steel.  First image shows the 1 7/8" Primary tubes, which step up to 2".



This is how that all looks installed in the Engine Bay.





Here's the Collectors tacked together.



This is a detail shot of the X-Pipe and front Exhaust Mount.



More shots of the complete system, finished.













Also had Stainless Steel hard lines made for the Dry-Sump.  Fabricated from 25mm diameter x 1.6mm wall, stainless steel tube with -16 AN bulkhead fittings into the Engine Bay and boot.  These will attach to braided lines to the Tank in the rear and the Pump at the front.







Very happy with this work, excellent attention to detail - now onwards and hopefully upwards...

Nice.  Liking the line connections at the front.  Really neat.

Well, she is pretty easy going! 

...as for an ETA  -  I gave up trying to predict finish dates a long time ago.

Hey Hagspeed,
Insane (in a good way!) Engineering and beauty in your build!
Cheers Phil.
If you've never buggered anything you've never done anything!
But if you've buggered a lot maybe you're not very good at it!

Two for one is good but four for two is better!
