Exhaust manifolds

Build005 1985 BMW E28 535 LS1 038

The e28 was not intended to have exhaust exit on the drivers side, so we were limited on space.

The solution was to modify a 98 Camaro manifold so that it would snake around the steering box. The 98 manifolds were stamped steel making the cut and weld process much easier.

Since this swap I have made stainless 4-1 manifolds for this specific application. This actually was my first go around and before I could tig stainless. Check it out below.

All connected, ready to close it up with weld.

Passenger side was MUCH easier
