Hi Guys, Just been reading this thread, and I too need a pair of stainless manifold for my V6 Coupe, so if you are speaking to suppliers who wish to know how many sets, you can add me to the numbers please. If there is any progress and possible pricing please let us all know.
many thanks

Tim

Update , a member has his car booked in at Double SS exhausts for 2nd week in January . They will use his car to make a pair of manifolds and to construct a jig to allow production of identical manifolds to proceed. Next update will be after he collects his car , I intend to have a look at the work done and will comment acordingly .
Price , timescale and availability TBA

Update on the manifolds . A member took his Coupe into Double SS last week but they declined to remove the old manifolds as they quoted one bolt had sheared off in the head and the other bolt heads were in very poor condition. So the car was returned to the owner untouched . However in a conversation with Double SS today they have another Coupe booked in for end of this week or early next week. So I will update again over the next couple of weeks .
I will continue to keep pushing to get these manifolds made.

Rung Double SS today for a update , they have a the alternative Coupe in for prototype manifolds to be made but due to bad weather in Exeter they are short staffed so no progress has been made. Hopefully next week !

Anyone in the midlands wanting manifolds could enquire here:

https://www.pdgough.com/

Can't say they will be cheap,but they have a lifetime guarantee.They made a custom stainless high quality system for me,including tubular manifolds, a long time ago,pleased to see they are still in business.

Spoke to double ss yesterday and they have made a set for a car and made jigs to manufacture more sets . I had asked double ss to take photos for me, but they didn’t . And i don’t know who’s coupe they used to prototype on either , anybody know ?
Had a conversation with GW and they have 10 sets on order but they don’t know when they will be made, so emailed double ss to try and find out when they will be made and sent out, they have told me they will send me some photos when they have made a set , but they said that before .
Graham walker is going to notify me as soon as he knows what’s going on so no point in ringing him yet , i am sure i will be the first to know . So nearly there , sure it will be soon .
