Yea fits in sweet. Like i said was fabd completly inside a front cut so everything fits perfect, only issue were gonna get is heat soak into the bonnet as theres only like 30mm from the ex manifold

um dude im a welder by trade... I think i know what im talking bout... And ive worked with 4th year aprentices that still cant weld... And my first time welding went very well actually... This stuff is just ridiculous... Looks like they have picked up a welder... Left it on wat ever setting it was on and forgot to turn on the gas... And then even though the first weld was shit they said oh well f**k it and went ahead and welded the whole thing... Der if it looked like shit the first time its gunna look shit the next 20 times...
