    Gents,

    I'll donate a kidney and sell my wife for medical experiments for a "art du Rally Bob" header

    Splendid Parts does not have the header in stock anymore, and to avoid cutting the bell house on my Getrag 240, the original sprint or a short (signature) header from OGTS (with a big flange) will be preferable. I don't think OGTS ships overseas and it would probably end up costing me a ton of greens..- but there you go, can't get all you want in life.

    Have a nice weekend.

    I have stock manifold, sprint manifold, header, and the ability to fabricate whatever I really wanted for exhaust. I intend to go with the sprint first, then test the header just for S.A.G., and then eventually may build my own. Only time will tell. Got get over the next hurdle in my treatments first

    Oohh no, we Danes are bad crap crazy! Wife swapping, selling our children to medical experiments, having a health care system that take care of both rich and poor, paying taxes that even the Russian commies thinks are to steep, heavy drinking liberals...- remember we legalized pornography as the first country in the world 50 years ago

    Cheers from Copenhagen.

    Those are all turbo manifolds I’ve fabricated, not factory options by any means.

    A GT is the hardest to fit without hacking up the body shell. Just very little space.

    I prototyped a full GT turbo system back in 2015, right before closing up my shop. Photos here: https://flickr.com/photos/[email protected]

    Perhaps some day I’ll get back to it, but I’ve been out of cars for the past 4 years.

    Take a close look at Rally Bob's custom work and then compare it to the new shorty. The two runners at cyl 2 and 3 go out and over the others. You may say tomato / tomatoes. Dyno pulls with each header on otherwise identical race prepped motors that have enough flow characteristics, would see nearly 10 hp difference. Why? RB's header is more closely tuned by achieving nearly equal length runners before the collector. This makes a big difference in performance and the sound from the tailpipe.

    Gents,

    I have just had the pleasure to speak with Gil from OGTS. What a nice guy . I have just put in a order on a Big Shorty Header. I think I'll gift wrap it and put it under the Christmas tree with a card saying "From Santa, because you have been a good boy".

    I'll remember to entertain you about the reaction from "she who has to be obeyed"..- it'll probably be hilarious

    I didn't try to swap her for the header. It wouldn't be fair to Gil

    Cheers
