Are you planning one set for all three chassis? The pics look like an FC.

I'm curious how much ground clearance there will be.

That's the goal.  We're doing a layout with an eye towards right hand drive guys as well.  FC chassis was the first at hand.  The goal on ground clearance is to be not quite kissing the floorboards.  I'm playing with clocking the bundle to get it as tight as we can.

I've been searching for 1 7/8" jtrs. Found a pair of 1 3/4" but haven't heard from the seller yet. If I dont hear anything from him before these are complete, or we otherwise, you can add me to the list. I would be wrapping them if that matters at all.

Roger that.  I've never lived somewhere with weather gnarly enough to have headers fail from wrapping.  I kinds suspect wrapping is a bigger deal if you're doing the cut and weld approach as opposed to mandrel bends.  It sure does cut down the engine bay heat though...

To my surprise this winter has been showing us more moisture compared to the past few years. If I wasn't so sick I'd be snowboarding at every opportunity. What a great season this is... =(

I agree that we don't see enough moisture for wrapping to be too much of a concern.

Really looking forward to seeing these completed and having a pair for myself.

Looks really good, still planning on RX8 fitment?  I'm ready to toss my borla shorties in the trash.

My previous post mentioned about me waiting on an exchange but that situation amounted to nothing. As an update I'd like to make my position clear and officially request to be part of this endeavor. I agree to all terms and would be happy to provide Ronin and the community with details regarding the craftsmanship of the prototype, the installation process, and my final thoughts. If there is anything you need please feel free to PM me. I can also send you an email with a formal request if that method of communication is preferred. I appreciate your consideration of me as a possible prototype tester. I really look forward to its production and own (as a prototype tester or as a regular consumer) what I believe to be the future standard of long tube headers for LSX swapped FDs/FCs.

On a side note, would it be possible to make custom requests like welding extra o2 bungs or EGT bungs? If so would you happen to have an idea of costs for such a request?
