No price yet , they won’t sell manifolds direct from Double SS any cheaper than Graham Walker will sell him as he paid for the prototyping .

Received a email from Double ss today , they have despatched manifolds to Graham Walkers so he now has them in stock . I have no idea of price . Despite asking numerous times for photos from Double ss dealing with them is like pulling teeth . So if you are in need of a pair he,s the man speak to . As regards quality or fitment I am sorry I know nothing .

Roy
If the SE6B and GTC PASSENGER side tubular`s are anything to go by I would be worried.
I have had fitting issues with Two sets and I know that G W deny outright any problem :w
I have spoken to SS about the problem and offered my tuppence worth and they told me that it was the LAST batch that was bent a few degrees out.
Probably due to the engine mounts being wrong on the SE6b/GTC they measured.

Yes there was and it didn’t make good reading . Trouble is at the moment this is the only source of these manifolds .

They’re the only current “off the shelf” source.

I’ve seen problems with the latest batch of Middlebridge manifolds from double S - I didn’t know there had been problems with the simpler 2.8 manifolds - which is really annoying as I need a set for the 6b and a set for the coupe!

Well not happy , contrary to what I had been led to believe the Coupe manifolds are not long 3 into 1 primaries but 3 short primaries . I think they took up the easy way out . They have been a nightmare company to deal with .

surprised that GW let that happen seeing as how he funded this

I'd say with 99% certainty they're the same ones.. Nigel and Graham do talk to each other, you know :wink:

I can only say that the exhaust system on my GTC (now sold) was superb.
Long primaries, shiny silencers (after at least 8 years) and a lovely sound.

I don’t think GW funded these as a local owner needed some and contacted Double ss direct . Don’t think he knew about the offer . Somebody on Facebook . I think ?
