what about using the stock log manifold and bore/cut holes through it and slip pipe into each hole that's shaped (like you would for a roll cage joint) to fit to the other inside (head) side of the log. essentially blocking each port from the others and giving you 6 stubs to work from. so the same as your round bar method but your pipe stubs go right through the old log to the head side rather than welding to the outside of the bar. i think that makes sense.

need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.
I had a good response from Whengparts so I will probably go with that for starters. I'm not clever enough to work out the lengths myself so I am thinking of copying the design of TR6 headers (does that sound like a plan)
I forgot that I had to cut off some of the inlet manifold like you say, I think. Lol
With my Consul 1703 four pot I'm not sure that coupled with a Nikki carb it actually gave it any more ooompf.
Pretty sure the six pots with Raymond M upgrade were a different ball game!!
It hss been said that the last generation of Raymond Mayes heads ( the ones with the triple Webbers) were good for 200 BHP, they have started making them again but they are expensive. A decent carb and exhaust could tip a six over the "100 BHP per ton" ratio which is what used to define a quick car..
