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.

Chopping it up!
Ugh...those welds are not pretty
All connected, ready to close it up with weld.
Passenger side was MUCH easier
