Sounds good - a deep resonance, gives you a good idea of the 'power'

I wasnt quite happy with the idle, put it down to it being a little low. As I removed the exhaust AFTER draining down the coolant and oil :roll: I see.that #2 exhaust port is suspiciously clean...
Did an injector spray test and it had failed, also spotted that two were a bit wet i.e dribbly
So I swapped the lot, spray test again, fill up with fluids and...
I can almost balance a coin on the breather tower, but didnt have a 20 or 50, only a 10 :D

Finally got around to playing exhaust Tetris and working out a way to provide storage that wouldn't affect loading, being as my engine stands and this are at a common height for ease of transfer.
The silencer and pipes were the biggest headache, must have turned that thing over umpteen times before the penny dropped!
I think it's worked out quite well, a few simple hooks and gravity does the rest. Just needs somewhere to hang the alternator and hose clamps to finish it off, plus a proper fuel tank!
