I've been clearing out some stuff from the garage and come across a manifold - certainly twin-cam but certainly not Elan.
Anyone know what it is? Seven? Cortina?
If anyone has a use for it, its your's for free (just cover postage).

Judging by the width, my guess is from some kind of kit car with a side exhaust.

Its not a 7 one, the primarys are close to the block exactly like for a 7 but then the two secondaries go too far out before turning to the rear.

Something like an 11 replica or maybe a Mallock.

Looks like it has been used in some sort of rear drive transverse set up?

Do we think the primarys being close to the block being an issue in the Elan? Might Give better clearance to the chassis? I'm thinking that I could modify this one to suit an Elan. The diameter visually looks larger than standard?
