I recognize that firewall. Fun trying to set it up for cans huh? That is why I said to heck with it and took the easy way out and was going to use mufflers.

LOL...Yup for a huge plane CARF sure missed the boat on the Sukhoi!

I got me some skinny JTec pipes coming Doug...most certain they'll work perfect. The RE3's fit but they were tight against the landing gear and wing tube.

Late to mention it now to you Jack. But I rotated my Carb, with my adjustments out the bottom, between the headers.

Yes, thanks Dale. I saw that once I was done setting up the throttle. I will leave it now and deal with it.

May have to take the top half off the cowl for a bit.
