I like to use ceramic coatings on the inside and outside of headers as the first step to reducing heat soak. I don't like to use header wraps unless I have to.

Post Relocation Preparation and Exhaust Secondary Fabrication

Itís been a couple of months since the last update and the honest reason for lack of an update is that I havenít been able to make much progress during this time. The reality is that Iíve wanted to work on the Miura project but have been mostly consumed with trying to re-locate to a new home in another state. If youíve been in touch with the real estate market here in the USA recently, you probably understand that itís a crazy, chaotic, sellers market. Given my homebuilt car hobby, I have special requirements for garage/workshop space that really limits the choices of properties that will work for me. When my requirements are combined with my wifeís (hers have nothing to do with garage/workshop) the quantity of candidate homes/properties is even smaller.

There have been a couple of properties weíve pursued that had nice homes with detached 3,000 sq ft garages on them. Quite frustratingly, neither of these worked out for various reasons. The property that looks like it will be our next home has plenty of space for a large garage/workshop but it currently only has an attached 3 car garage. So the first major project after moving will be the construction of a large garage/workshop.

In preparation for the move, I wanted to get the Miura headers and secondary exhaust components finished up. Like the headers, the secondary exhaust is also of tuned lengths and is merged to a single pipe for final blending of all exhaust pulses together.







Hopefully the headers and this secondary exhaust configuration will result in a smooth, ďV12 likeĒ exhaust sound. With this bit complete, Iím now starting to tidy up the Miura chassis for shipping/storage and packing up the garage for the same.

I'd be jealous on just a 3 car garage!
Good luck with your move mate as I'd hate to even contemplate doing it myself.

Hi Joel!

I just spent the last 2 days reading the thread. As always, your work is wonderful!!

When I made up the headers for my V12 GTO, I used the Icengineworks header mockup kit. Assembling a "lego" set of headers then handing them off to get the finished pipes made for a super fast process.

Sorry I fell out of touch, I bought a new place too and haven't had enough time for my projects.

Michelle

Thanks Michelle! I hate it when "life" takes up all our time and leaves nothing to spare for the important things like car projects. I have a distinct feeling I'll be in the same boat for a while.

Post Miura at new home

Well the Miura has now made the move to the new home.



I'm looking forward to when I'll be there full time and in a position to move the project forward again.
