The air intake pipework went back on for the final time, still a few clips to add here....



Gearshift assembly refitted... i'm very happy with the outcome of this linkage, it just works really well.



Someone advised me to add a gusset to this area, now that my subframe is back on i can see i have space for that, so i will add one shortly...

I then plumbed everything up and added lots of finishing touches...



No self respecting Mk1 V8 would be complete without a Jimi bracket now would it....



The bay as it looks now, just the exhaust to rehang, add heatproofing here and there, and finish the boot off....



Right i need a beer, been on this thing since 6am.

Does your silencer fill up the brunk (boot) area?
If not, are you going to make a pantera style brunk tray ?

You see those side panels that extend back from the strut tops into the "brunk" ? That is where my silencer sits, there are pics of it earlier in the build.... basically i am boxing it in and venting out of the brunk lid via my "bbq grill"

PS. What's a pantera? never heard of that here...

I went back and saw the photos, it looks like it fills the boot.

Surely they have Panteras in England, as its an Italian car

Ford/Detomaso Pantera 1970-1989-ish

Ah right, one of those, nice!

The exhaust takes up a fair chunk of the brunk <- but i honestly have no other solution, at least this way i get to keep some of the brunk.

That's quite neat, given me a few ideas that has. I think if my exhaust is just too loud i will have to redesign it something like the Pantera.

The way your engine bay looks now reminded me of the pantera, so that is why the luggage tray popped into my mind.

The mufflers (silencers) of the Pantera are very short and small (and don't do much) and are mounted under the car at the rear.

That was my problem, i can't find anything short and square to go in the rear corners that will do a good job of silencing, so the TVR silencer in the brunk is the only choice i have.

I might have to build my own silencers if i can't live with it.

I'm not sure what you have available to purchase, but here in the USA, there is quite a large selection:

http://www.summitracing.com/search/D...?Ns=Rank%7cAsc

Have you considered supertrapps ?

http://www.summitracing.com/search/?...pertrapp&dds=1

They are adjustable for noise level-- Less Noise = less power (less supertrapp discs installed), or install more disks for more power (and more noise). You can switch back and forth, or try to find some happy compromise.

I had a supertrapp once upon a time (when I was younger and dumber) on a Suzuki Katana 600 (my "Can-O-Tuna"). She was the fastest hunk of junk in town!

Supertrapps can fit in places no other mufflers can.

Chris thanks for those links, i might have to give those a go if my design doesn't work out.

I noticed my oil filter relocation kit ran fairly close to the exhaust on the right hand bank, so i was just about to start making a shield for it when i found a spare Apexi air filter polished cover and would you believe it bolted right onto the filter housing with the two attachment bolts being in exactly the right place!





I love it when you just pick something up sometimes and it just works.

Arent most oil filters within a finger width or 2's length from the headers?

Yeah that's true, but i'm partial to a bit of bling, and this will help keep other crap from hitting the filter too

Paul, How do you find time to post on all of these websites and still build such awesome cars?
Did you clone yourself?
