Thanks for those.

So it looks like we just need to tool up fort a custom set of headers as there appears to be space - more typical of a standard V8 style header where the headers hug the top side of the head/block rearwards and then dump down towards the rear of the engine. I foresee the collector in a more vertical position parallel to the fire wall - maybe with a nice set of snakes sticking out the front... or a turbo :D

There is room both above and below the shaft to run header pipes. If I had more time I'd make a custom header with two pipes going above and two below joining in the collector further downstream. A short un-equal length header like this is far from ideal but for now....
