    All coming together Colin

    If it were mine I would be looking to reroute those rear brake lines so not near exhaust & get some rubber / mounts for the beam where / how they attach. On the Thermostat housing why not weld a 90 degree elbow then run straight to rad avoiding manifold heat etc.

    Yes, a few little alterations to be done now the exhaust is done. I asked Simpsons to build it how they thought best, and I would alter anything else afterwards.

    I'm well pleased with the results of their work, quality of service too was exceptional - almost unheard of in motorsport.

    Looks really top quality; can't deny a new manifold is on the wish list too!

    One thing I don't know is the weight of the new manifold and system.

    I weighed the old old one that came off and it was around 18kg. I'd be surprised if this one is any less, especially with the 2 big silencers in it. But at least it should be quiet.

    I took the opinion with mine mine that it was better to be a bit heavier but pass noise everywhere, I have 3 silencers on mine although a bit smaller. I'm not sure that they are as strict on noise at hillclimbs though!

    I agree with Jezz. Mines quite heavy too, but it's never failed a sound test.

    Looks Awesome, it will be a pleasure to work on too.

    New battery installed with the proper mounting bracket;



    And with a big 'thank-you' to Ollie (MXcrazy) who sent me this rather lovely billet oil cap;
