Does anybody have any experience with the dual exhaust manifold being sold by several of the vendors?
I'm keen to hear your opinions please?
If you do a Keyword Search on "dual exhaust" you will get plenty of ideas.
Best thing. E mail me and I'll show some pics.
Rob, be aware that fitting a dual exhaust manifold to a RHD car is difficult. The steering column needs to be chopped at the firewall flange, as does the firewall. You will also have to find a way to get the throttle rod past it and hooked up again once past.
All this may be a lot easier on a speedster.
Hope this helps.

Right hand steering, might be a bit hard or may not fit , You do have to cut out your fire wall a bit , I got a bit impatient and hacked mine. But will go back and clean up another day or forget about it.
Having two pipes. You have increased your heat a bit under the wooden floor. I have mine insulated .
Images. Sent to Rob. Post them if you like Steve E .
Alan & Steve,
Thanks for answering and I take on board your concerns. Yes, I can now see, thanks to the photos, that it will cause problems with the steering. The other thing it could, and with my luck, would, is interfere with the pedals.
Now that I have good clear pics, thanks to Steve, I'll investigate it more thoroughly. Thanks again,
Considering this image that I stole of another thread, and that the speedster will have a lowered steering column, I've decided against buying one.
Instead, this morning I visited my local "exhaust guy" and we've put plans in place to build a set of old style headers for the thing.
Thanks for all the advice gents, its much appreciated.
Red's headers in california has headers for Model T on the shelf. ($175 if I remember right)
..but maybe their headers would also interfer with right hand side steering? Some adjustments or customisation is always necessary when building a speedster.
Rob, I made my own headers for my speedster. Unfortunately, the motor is out so I cannot photograph them in situ. I made them come outside the chassis rail, so there are no clearance problems at all. My firewall is wider and extends well past the rail. The headers run underneath it when they are in place.
