Check this one out, total cost 0, might not look good, "but ya don't look at the mantel piece when ya poking the fire" and I am prepared to be disappointed if it's not the best at performance, but god loves a try-er, and if it doesn't work then I ain't lost owt, will just have to invest

550 - 600 isn't too crazy in the manifold area for these engines, you can easily spend 1000 for a decent manifold for the B16B

Problem is Miniitegra that I could chop up any 4-2-1 ebay jobbie and after much faffle putting it together get some awesome welds on it and use it, but regardless of how it looks I will never know if it ran as efficiently as it should? I could have power loss and wouldn't know where to point the finger at? engine, exhaust, other?

With this one at least I know its the dogs nuts in not just looks but actually performing as I've used it on the rolling road, road and track

I spent 3000 buying my mini, others have spent 300, I spent over a grand just buying the DTA setup, others have spent nowt and chopped up the honda wiring loom, all comes down to the individual and what they can do, fair play to you for making an exhaust manifold but I can't

This just gives people using an allspeed frame a heads up if they are well and truly stuck on the manny side of things, it was just to let people know the old shop manifold is still available thats all

Also it might help someone out like it helped me, I could of kept it to myself and carried on but I'm not like that, I'm not a selfish c**t I like to help out where I can

Problem is life would be alot simplier (and fuggin cheaper) if I hadn't of found it and just used the standard honda manny with a clubman front.....

can of worms + open = more problems!

I blame Matt

It depends on what frame you use mine uses the the minitec frame and the standard Honda manifold fits under a standard length round nose

If your making it yourself then you got no issues

If your not and are putting it in a standard roundnose then put the engine in and front bar on and let us all know

Heres one I made earlier



Manifold is just touching the front bar with the engine position 99.9% done, at 100% done I gave myself another 1-2mm clearance

For peace of mind I cut out and welded in a notch on the front bar for peace of mind to help with engine positioning



Its not needed, it was just peace of mind for me, just remember your engine rocks back on acceleration (inlet goes down exhaust manifold comes up) so you will hear it bang on hard changes with it sitting too tight

And thats with a manifold which sticks out 95mm maximum at the furthest depth, which is about 3 3/4 inch, don't sound like alot but trust me - thats some serious hugging of the block

Did you not get my PM? The link for the company (Hayward and Scott) is in the first post, but they don't have the manifold on there website as its custom made, they have a jig there for it so send them an email and ask them for postage etc and ask for Ian
