If you dont mind me asking; where did you get that exhaust manifold from? It looked to have a name brand on it, but I was unable to tell what company made it! You car is sick man, I love the interior, and the use of fire shielding around your oil lines near the downpipe; very ingenious!

Thanks for the comments, I wish this was my car tis not :(
This is just one, of MANY cars Built for a great customer and long time friend whom is a member here should he feel to chime in. The manifold,downpipe, and screamer tube is custom built by a local fabricator, who's work is top notch. We will be producing our own manifolds this summer so should you be interested let me know.

This car is intended to take a whooping, thermal management is the primary cause of engine failure. Weather it be internal due to knock, external due to improper shielding, or electrical overloading it is always the primary concern of any race/street high performance vehicle. Those whom over look this usually end up on the curbside, ask me how I know :P

I am interested in a manifold, should your shop actually decide to make them. I am in the market for one, and would love to see your work! (will it accept 38+ wastegate sizes?)

Also, you asked me to ask you; how do you know? :D

Thanks for the quick response!

hi mate the big tank is the header tank, what you domis fit a T into the bottom hose of the rad and take the T off upto the bottom of the header thank and then the over flow off the rad goes to the top of the header tank but you have to take out the spring seal in the rad cap so the air in the rad can go to the top of the header tank, does that help? there are more photos in my build :)

Yea I get the it for the most part, Seems like a lot of complexity. We wont be using one unless there are issues at the track which I doubt. I use a modified st165 header tank set up on my track can and have no issues with over heating, main thing is the tune which I do myslef to keep the engine cool under load.
