CX racing joy

Runner #1 is about 26" long
Runner #4 is about 14" long

Equal-ish







Every internal junction has these cold welds protruding into the airstream


This is from the head side so exhaust flows against that step. Many of the junctions are mated like this.

I was looking into the header as a someone posted it on the FB group with a video clip and it sounded great, it sure did sound like a Subaru. After looking at those pictures from Emilio, there is no way I would buy that. The craftsmanship is horrible, especially for the price. I will just wait off another year and put the funds into the turbo build.

Thank you for those pictures Emilio.

Speaking of which, didnt someone do a turbo manifold with severely un-equal length 1-2 and 2-3, which sounded very subaru-ish?
