The fwd models would require a different manifold to the rwd models as the engine sits higher and at a different angle, but I'm not aware of anybody having any great problems with fwd manifolds.

We're hoping to produce a manifold for the FWD models as well, with emphasis on better breathing than on the standard setup. We'ere hoping that the prototype for the RWD cars will be ready in the next week or so.

Another update; the prototype is nearly ready for first test fitting. This should be happening in the next week or so. We'll give some feedback to the manufacturer and any issues can be ironed out. Fingers crossed that all will go well and we'll be able to announce some prices for the finished product soon. We may even be able to have a unit on display at the MG & Triumph Show on 19th February....

Pricing details aren't yet available, but once we have them they'll be posted here.

Another update; we are also having a manifold for the 1300 FWD models made as well.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but has a reasonable attempt been made to equalize the lengths of primaries and secondaries? It LOOKS pretty close!

Not that I need one, I don't have an OHV engine in my fleet, it's just intellectual and engineering curiosity!

Steve

PS, I bet it will be an absolute monster to fit, have fun with the trial fitting!

Thankfully the trial fitting will be done by the manufacturer, so someone else's problem :D I should be able to report back in the next couple of weeks as to how it went.

PRICES AT LAST!
RWD models (Dol 1300, Dol 1500, !500TC, Toledo);
Stainless steel £300
FWD models;
Mild steel £300
Stainless steel £400

Note; these prices apply only if we buy a batch of 10 units for each type. One offs will be more. These are the cost to the Club, we are not putting any markup on them. Lead time will be approximately two weeks from date of order. A Dolomite 1500 is currently having the prototype fitted so that any adjustments can be made.
Interested? Send me a PM and we'll see how many we can order so that we can keep the price down.

B) can I have the fwd pattern back at some time (because it isn't mine)
