sailor Hot pipes right where all the water/crud comes through the grille doesn't help the appearance. Beating it on the curb didn't either.

4-2-1 is a nice header for spreading the power band, helps at both ends.

Just run a straight pipe out from behind the front wheel & a cutout to run to the back through a muffler for stealth mode. don't need to turn it 90% that way....

LOL!!!

Kidz!! Oh wait your the uhhhh cough cough! Kid!! Cough Cough!!

I think that would be bad ass to make that SVT header work. Couldn't hurt your bottom or top end, can only help, at least I would think.

Dads right a lil snip here and a tuck there and a few beads and shes a spankin new h00ker, err header!!

It's funny but you can't even tell it was stainless!! Heat is our enemy!

Ahhh.....Dukes of Hazzard fans! That must have made a heck of a noise!

This header should look great on this car. It's going to clean up nicely. Brian has already started cutting and cleaning.

He wiped out all 4 wheels, all 4 tires, both struts, both front control arms, header, hi-flow cat, and the flex.

79mgb Quick update:


ah1f39 sent me an old SVT header of his. I'm currently working on modifying the header to get it to fit my car. So far it looks like I can get it to work but I may have to slightly modify the primary pipes on cylinders 1 & 4 to clear the steering shaft. I'll also have to recreate the lower end of the headers to point the headers in the right orientation.

I'll post more photos as I get more work finished on it.

daspazzZX3 Kidsss, right?

Nothing wrong with greybeards. Im half and half myself. LOL Did the streak startle?

Mustangsix So, there I was, tooling along at about 70mph on the 408 when this dark blue streak screams past me at about 90mph, beeping his horn and waving.......

The MG club is mostly old greybeards, but they really like the car, especially the way it looks so vintage, but very mean. The wheels are perfect.

HEHEH, Is anyone ever "done" with their car(s). I know I will be working on mine for some time to come. You are right though sailor, it does look great!

And driving is probably loads of fun with that Zetec power plant, as it's now a FAST(er) MG!!!
