That first one has a muffler, you can see it. I'm sure it drops the noise level a couple db.

One resonated, one muffled with large resonator.

Resonators work better with some piping after them (not at the back, near the tip)

Runners welded on. Need to finish the plenum floor and then form the plenum halfs over the wood form that I have started.

The wood form needs a lot of shaping in the throttle area.

Decided to get a good camera lens to show off all of the work I have coming up.

Here is another vband collector for a 1.6L hot side setup.

Havent updated this since I started the manifold for that collector above.

Here is a few pictures of the process. The old hot side parts were just dropped off to make the downpipe, so its game time.

Manifold is done besides the wastegate, which i will place after the downpipe is done.
