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.
