Now, what Opel GT Owners need is two (2) piece enhanced, exhaust head pipe.
Two piece design would allow cost effective shipping. Hope that they are working on it?

Car type: OPEL GT Category: Exhaust Head Pipe, Opel GT 1.9L
Part: 10004 Price: $149.00 Description:
Head pipe, is original-style exhaust pipe that connects from the bottom of the exhaust manifold to the front muffler.
Installs using part #10009 gasket and set of part #10011 bolts.
When I bought Mike Lane's (opellane) slightly used OGTS exhaust system, I had him cut the exhaust pipe about a foot past the final collector. I am about to install a flex joint at that location, so I was going to need to install flanges there in any event.

I suspect that Gil would cut the pipe if asked.

FINALLY my OGTS Shorty Header found it's way thru Danish customs and I picked it up on the post office today. When I was handed the package I for a second thought it had been opened, the header stolen and replaced with two backs of chips :lmao: I was really amazed about how light it felt! Home safe and unpacking..- must have been watching a five year old getting his first pedal kart :yup: I can't wait to get cracking mounting my new shorty header and suddenly spring 2020 seams to be looooong away. I guess getting rid of the old massively heavy cast iron exhaust manifold will lighten the GT for 17% (or something) of the total weight, and will result in a massive performance increase.

As I said before I'll wrap it and place it under the Christmas tree, and entertain you with my wife's reaction in a post to come. Not sure I'll be able to translate all her cussing into English, but it'll be fun trying. :lmao: First time in years I'll get a bigger or more shiny present than her.

Thanks to Gil and OGTS Team.

Cheers
