  1. So we finally have an update!! Been in discussion with Topgear about these manifolds and after exchanging some pictures they admitted that they looked wrong on the angle of the end flanges. Like they had been welded on at the wrong angle. So they said they had a new batch coming in a few weeks and they would be in touch when they arrive and check them. So today a fresh new set of manifolds arrived and they are looking positive from initial looks against the old set. The angle of the flange is now different and more in line with what I was seeing the issue with fitment to be. So plan is to hopefully get them fitted this weekend and I will report back with noise and if they go on correctly. But currently it's all looking good for the next phase.
  2. Same I was ushered into main arena. By the time the other place was mentioned it was too late and I was boxed in 😂 ahh well had a good time but didn't manage to catch many people from last year. Until next year where we can sort it so we can all get into COC corner!!!! 😁
  3. Yeh same in the arena bit as I was told no club stand 🤣🤣 might be by yourself Craig 😂
  4. I'm parked in the club entrance. Will just ask and see. Just say Cayman owners and we might grab a spot
  5. Thanks all for the replies, Update is as follows: -Topgear have finally made contact when I emailed them to question the fitment of the manifolds. Said that if they wanted to fit and adjust them then I'm happy to do that. Or just get another set that does fit sent out / exchanged. I'm dealing with Alexander one of the directors. - Emails have been sporadic but latest was that I've sent pictures to them as requested of the manifolds so they can investigate on their end. So as of yet they are still in the box. 🤣 - New hardware is fairing up well. We'll be properly checking it this bank holiday to make sure nothing has come loose or leaking - Drilling jig is to be rented out so any interest do let me know. Its pencil booked for a couple of weeks starting next weekend. But let me know dates and I can organise how it will get to you.
  6. Will be along 😁 1. beanoir 2. Daz 3. Adrian Turner 4. Draven 5. Craig 6. Kai 7.Equinox (Tom)
  7. Yeh not great, I have pinged them an email so will see what response I get. Tbh either way I will get it sorted just gave them the chance to twist this in their favour by providing some good customer service. We shall see what happens 😁 in the mean time I'm enjoying being back bahind the wheel!!
  8. So it's official I have broken down and cried.... 😂 where to begin...... So got started today with the new drill bits and smashed out the last 2 pilot holes where I left it. Then onto the larger drill bit and straight through those. Offft we are now cooking. Living the dream as one would say. Then onto chasing the threads and wow everything has gone smooth like butter. Wtf today is going to be my day!!! I own this weekend! So then in go the new manifolds. Ooooo they doo look bloody good all shiny and new. Also sporting 4 new lambda sensors as I could not be fudged to remove the old ones. (luckily) So now onto chucking on the rear section of the exhaust, on the wheels go and away we go..... Or so I thought. On goes the exhaust and one side all lined up perfectly. Move round to the other side...... Bugger..... Not even close. It looks like the flange has seen the other and is actively avoiding getting anywhere near it so has bent itself as much away at an angle as it can.... Dam it looks like this isn't going on today. The next couple of hours with the misses (yes she got roped in!!!) is spent trying to move things, loosen things and wedge in spacer bits to try overcome this predicament. But alas to no avail they will not fit. So off comes all the previous work and there they are sat on the floor. Looks as though one manifold has had the flange welded on it at a slightly different angle which has meant it won't line up one one side atal. So plan b. Sporting the new hardware and calling on the local exhaust guys who did the secondary cat delete it looks like they are going to adjust their work to fit the manifold or adjust the manifold whatever is easier. However this means I'm back to the standard cats and manifolds until I can drop it round with them.... Luckily I left the old mabda sensors in place as I cleaned up the old manifolds and have now chucked them back on temporarily. So all this time and a whole day spent for nothing. Lol atleast there are new gaskets on everything and no more snapped studs or leaks which helps things. So now with 4 beers in hand I'm off to drown my sorrows but atleast the car is back and working so now more Toyota Yaris (thank god!)
  9. Job jobbed 😁👌🍰 now to put it all back together again lol
  10. Game on.... Let's avvveee you! 😂 Gotta get your war face on 🤣
  11. Last bit of the puzzle has turned up. Tomorrow will be the day hopefully 😂
  12. Yeh he is a guru but I'm pretty sure he means the secondary cats which he is right, are easy to remove in comparison to the cats on the manifolds. Could be wrong though and I'm just mega slow haha!!!!
  13. Next piece of the puzzle has arrived. Just gotta wait for these drill bits to arrive and I can crack on and get it all finished.
  14. Yeh they are too gear manifolds. Look to be pretty good quality tbh. Currently can't fault them. Just had a spanner and was hanging off it while the manifold was in a bench vice. Wasn't going anywhere so have just ordered some new ones.
