Haha that'd be nice Deano, I've been playing with the manifold and having a chuckle at the port size. Not much power to be had out of the old pre-crossflow. I don't remember winning any races in the GT I had in my teens so it looks like the record will stand

So back too it, I got a price on fixing the other manifold but in the meantime found another, better one, for half the price so grabbed it and had it faced.

After that it was into the shed to remove all the casting marks and give it a buff and polish, spent a saturday morning on it and reckon it was time well spent, it'll match the headers when I have them ceramic 'chrome' sprayed.

Doing another batch of powder coating this week, the cars coming along well at the moment.
Cheers Drew
