    Side pipes

    The other thing I want to change is the side pipes for 4into1 so recommendations welcome - again to fit manifolds designed for a rover block

    I used pilgrim for the rv8 headers, new ones are good, then used custom chrome for the pipes - bargain and good quality.

    Hi Alex,

    I can't find custom chrome but it looks like they are now cherry bomb. Are these what you have?

    They’ve got a couple of different websites I think but yes that’s them. Nice chaps, they’ll make you whatever you want. The ones I wanted were non sva so no rolled edge so made mine from scratch. But yes, Good stuff.

    Dave's might be hard to beat on price.
    I wouldn't consider anything that isn't stainless - had chrome on my last car and the 4into1 feeder at the front of the pipe rusted.

    Stainless all the way for a longer lasting system but you have to ask what quality of stainless is being used in the system It has to be good quality stainless the ideal is 316 which is marine grade ( Better resistant to corrosion ) having a higher nickel over 304 but 304 has higher Chrome . 304 is better than 409 having a higher Chrome content. Bottom of the bucket is 302 which can show signs of rusting due to low chrome content avoid.
    316 can be more difficult to weld and can stress fracture easier over 304.

    The corrosive exhaust gases is what does the damage. Ceramic coating is an option but costly. Dave Brooks pipes look great and worth asking him if he has any about or on order soon.

    Please correct me if I am wrong but my understanding is that Daves exhausts will not go into the pilgrim headers so you need to either fabricate your own or get someone to do it for you.

    My side pipes are designed to take 4 individual header tubes.
    They are 1 7/8" ID.
    You would need to either swage/expand, or sleeve your headers if they are undersized.
    Or swage/expand my collector tubes if you are using 2" header tubes.
    I have a couple of sets spare.
