Have finally finished exhaust logs, possibly would have been easier to go with the lancing marine manifolds, but they didn't have provision for exhaust gas sensor, were way too bulky and a weird outlet for which there was no water cooled outlet that would fit. all the same happy with the way mine turned out. Cost $700 AU for 316 stainless pipes flanges and cnc cutting, welding gas and consumables, and 40 hours my time welding and cleaning up.

They came out very well fair play to you for putting in the time and effort to get exactly what you wanted.

Beautifull job on the manifolds. Will they be going on studs? Doesn't look like much clearance for bolts!

I have no experience with the Kalmaker-products, seems pretty high-end material.
Do they specify placement for the exhaust gas sensors? They seems close to the ports.

Nice welding btw :wink:

The exhaust gas sensor should be as close to the port as possible but also an average of all the cylinders is better. The sensor only works after it is heated so if you go too far down stream you need to have one with an internal heater,and they won't work after the water has been mixed in with the exhaust.

My exhaust elbows turned up yesterday so immediately fitted them, and finally got the exhaust system finished.
Now its on to finishing the cooling system, but still waiting on water pump to arrive.
