    Thanks guys!

    It´s actually a bit warmer than normally this time of year, around 0´C (32´F), but it was quite cold earlier, down to -30´C (-22´F). I live about 70 miles north of Helsinki. I hope you have a nice trip! :)

    I had to enlarge the tunnel for the transmission to fit the T-56.

    Then I started on the exhaust

    See a problem?

    The rectangular holes on the heads are so big that the tiny primaries of the shortys don´t come even close on covering them.

    I continued the pipes all the way back. No fancy bends on these ;)

    I put one straight thru muffler on each pipe
