Manifolds Look to have be painted black on your engine Dale ?

However with my 7.5:1 CR and larger intakes I should see an improvement (but less than the 20% needed to get it all certified).

Time will tell....Richard


Could just be differences in individual engines tested & the car with the Deitz Manifolds might have been a little healthier even before the modification? Who knows

OK; one remaining issue...how do I manage to get my hand past the new solid fuel line, wiring, choke cable and next to the fan housing to adjust the throttle control screw on the RHS carb!!! (note the carbs are on the opposite way to when Dale had the manifolds as I wanted them to sit in the same direction as stock!).

Still....goes nicely but just ticking over too fast....

Been using the '58 far too regularly as my oldest daughter has been using my daily driver; 70km round trip to and from work....

However, as much as I love my tapered tailpipes the exhaust is loud and un-neighbourly when I have to start it at 5.30am. Any ideas how to make a standard exhaust with straight through pipes quieter?

Thanks

OK...Santa brought me a pair of the TDE tailpipes; now much more neighbourly and overall more pleasant to drive!

Did the 'learn German DVD' from santa help in your buying decision?

They look very cool.
