The crucial point about the down pipes is that, for reasons of safety, should extend right down to the chassis rail. Non standard, but the thing to do.

Stacks, with the smoother edge, so less air turbulence, I gather, fit into an air box or filter. So I'm mistaken. Sorry. Unless you link to purpose-built ally air box, feeding off cold air duct...

What I should have written is that ram pipe designs vary a lot. In some, a straight tapering pipe, at different angles, depending on model. The point being that some are proven to release more bhp than others, which is worth following up.

Thank you David for taking the time, was planning on a long tube.

I think the best place to spend any more money would be on the nut holding the steering wheel....

:angry: Very irritated impressed if that is a modern grille!

Keeping my eyes open for a really good softer old grille (hen's teeth1) to modify.

This is stated as original and in great condition. It's neither to my mind

This might be original but I guess only of use to do what Hamish and I have done.

Anyone got a spare spare wheel cover in steel?

 

Cheers
