yeah, was great riding round there.   Got loads of jobs around the farm to do, plus some maintenance work, so nothing exciting really next.

I just spotted Yorkie in the grandstand parking of my video!

Yes, thanx Mark ...... big shout out peeps.

BTW - just POC, NOT finished by any means !

As you know - I am no welder, so I'm merely mocking up at this point. I haven't cut or modified the random SS bends I bought - simply "as is". After a bit of 3D jigsawing, I ended up with this basic idea.

The front pipes will be much tighter to the head and the 2 into 1 will be parallel - for looks. Like I said, I don't want to cut anything at this stage until a welder has seen it and approved. The left hand bend will pretty well go as is - just shortened to suit.

Nice run into the turbo, but the external aux. oil pump might get in the way - in which case, it's a mirror image the other side.  ;)

Thanx again for your generosity.   8)
