    Cool fuel system, braided lines look proper too
    What do you do for a living, work in a "speed shop"? Guess this car makes for an awesome advertisement

    I work the front end of a machine shop. Block surfacing, bore/honing, line hone, connecting rod sizing, cylinder head surfacing, valve jobs, engine building. I personally do the phones, invoicing, parts ordering, front counter stuff.

    With the steering gearbox mounted the upside down M3 manifolds point right at the steering arm:



    SO I'm on the hunt for headers using engines that have a similar enough bore spacing, exhaust port spacing and flange design that I can modify them to work on the BMW V8. This is an inexpensive set from a 2011-2014 Mustang 5.0, flipped upside down naturally.







    The passenger side fits beautifully. The drivers side, not so much. It sits a bit wonky, won't clear the corner of the body and of course the tubes line right up with the steering arm.





    So the hunt continues, I've got a few more engine options to explore before needing chop things up and piece my own header together.

    New air scoop to feed the throttlebody, just an added cherry on top.
