Selfmade exhaust header for the IMSA car

I wasn't able to find a 4-1 header for my car. So short handed I made my own and by the way learned how to TIG weld.

Christian, Indeed, nice job. If you are rigid mounting the engine/trans, I suggest NOT relying solely on the 2 horizontal-plane, bolts on each side of the block. In other words, put vertical triangulation support up to ear/lug near top of block, deck on each side. Have fun, art.

Nice work Christian.
Building your own headers is a lot harder than it looks.
You pulled it off beautifully.

Cheers
Fred

Great job on the headers. Would you be able to post some pictures of your front suspension? Do you know what hubs were used?

Thanks in adavnce

FWIW, Rover SD1 spindles are stronger, but require
mods.

Some suspension photos - these are old photos, directly after the trans atlantic shipping and some sea water treatment:
