Well actually Steve, the headers were the original ones that came on the car with the WP engines I sold you. I cut and shut them to fit the GSXR k5/6 I installed. Then I swapped them out for a Busa system I bought and modded to fit from John Stockley so these old ones are surplus. I suppose they could be fitted to a WP with a bit of reverse modding and as they are mild steel are easily welded. The can I have is one of Steve Owens large diameter aluminium repackable cans. It has one or two dents but is generally in good usable condiion.
If you're interested I could take some pics and send them. PM me your email address and I'll do that tomorrow night if you wish.

Rich

Dropped the engine in the hole today. Might have a sump depth issue to sort out.

This will keep us going through the winter!

Looks to be a easy build in comparison to the Imp?

Seat fitting today. May need a winter arse-slimming programme to make it comfortable though!

On a more serious note....having discussed the details of the mini-derived open diff previously fitted to the car with Jo White and Douglas Anderson (at Westgarage) we have concluded that the ZX10R will likely break the old drivetrain components at some time so I've taken the decision to drop all the mini-derived parts - diff/output shafts/driveshafts/ rear uprights - and go with something I know will work 100%. I'm going to fit the same Ford set up I have been running in the back of the Stiletto - Quaife lsd, Berrisford driveshafts, Sierra hubs and Ford wheels. This of course means a lot more expense, more headscratching to get the diff onto the chassis, and a change in front hubs too to keep the wheels matching. At least I'll be able to use the 3 sets Stiletto wheels and tyres between both cars though.
Here's a pic of the old mini diff together with the engine having it's mounting brackets fitted.

I've got a feeling that your ZX10r is not the same as that one John. Ian's dry sump system lowered my engine by 100mm.

Yes that sounds about right, I still have the standard bike sump but never measured the engine height before swapping it over.
