Default Re: E36 LS1 Beta

Update for June 12, 2007: Spent an hour looking at the completed fab work on the Beta headers. Pictures do not do them justice - they are works of ART. There is ample clearance everywhere and even starter removal looks easy (a concern with some V8 swaps).

We now await a new tubing bender (due next week) to tackle a revised motor mount bracket and trans crossmember, using tubing instead of the patchwork of tubes/plate/welding origami I made the prototype set from. Mandrel bent structural tubing (welded to Laser cut mounting plates) will make for lighter/stronger/better looking production parts and give more clearance for like the two 3" main exhaust pipes + cats.

More soon!
