Don’t know if anyone is interested, but I’m in the process of having a set of high grade stainless steel down pipes made up , jig and all. In the next couple of weeks. Sorting out the details tomorrow. 👍
I won’t be taking my tornado off road don’t you worry. My OE down pipes are looking a bit sorry and leaving sooty carbon deposits on the cylinder block. Not expensive, easy fix.The one annoying thing about the headers is that they are set up in a triangular configuration under the engine. Look at any Tornado and you'll see the problem with that. A bloke with a Amazonas reworked them flat, increasing the ground clearance. That looked like a brilliant idea to me.
I've opened mine back up a couple of times by heating it up and pushing it back into shape with a steel bar from the inside. Not pretty, but you don't see it.Has someone tried to repair such a damage?
Would be interested to know about success or failure (and at best learnings from failures to avoid them)
