Hey chaps,

Another question in my quest for more power from my N/A.... I'm looking at ITBs to sort the intake, now how about exhaust. Remember I am more interested in the mechanicals rather than the standard Buy a turbo/S/etc please!

Challenge is its RHD so I have a steering column in the way. Are there any off the shelf maniffolds that ar any good and will work on a RHD?

Ta
Rich

In return for these stupid questions I'll write it all up with pics and everything! (if I ever get that far! )

AFAIK Rich there are no RHD headers available for our cars.

I modded a set of LHD Bursch headers to fit. By themselves I would suggest it is not worth the effort. However with headwork, Euro CR, possibly cam, but especially with EFI it does make a difference. Trust me, now you`ve got MS, this is the next step, you`ll enjoy the results. But its a heap of work or expense.

Read this thread for a better idea and some pics, as I couldnt be bothered repeating myself. Am happy to answer any questions you may have though.

Cheers RC. I'll have a look.

I was thinking about lashing one up from stock tube bends, but I dunno anything about welding so I would have to borrow a welder and learn to tack weld, then take it to someone who can weld... that said it might be less effort to pay for a custom header...

Headers - got it, thats why I didn't find much!

Ta
Rich

Now this might be a stupid idea, would it be possible to start with an S manifold and work from that?

Now I realise they are totally different engine end, but the down pipe and back box is all in the same place. In fact a whole '44 or S system might be a good idea??

Does the S engine lean over as far? Clearly the flanges (fnarr, fnarr, sorry ) need changing and the spacing will probably be wrong too but it will certainly be a cheaper option and need less modding perhaps? I can get an S manifold for 30

What do you guys think?

I have a very old and rough looking set for a N/A car. I was going to modify them for my turbo head.

Drop me an email and I will send a picture.

Cheers
Simon
