Hi. Are all reliant exhaust manifolds the same ? At the moment, I might be able to get some 5mm thick plate laser cut for the exhaust ports and use stainless tubes for the exhaust down tubes.

no projects ever finished

I bought a couple of tubular manifolds from a guy on eBay for my last 2 trike builds.

The cast ones are all pretty much the same. Some are better cast port wise, but I think that's about it.
As shown by the pic above, all tubular systems I've seen end up with spacers so the inlet manifold clears the exhaust, that pushes the carb out further.
That's why I kept the standard setup.

Getting older but no wiser! Just using bigger hammers.
The answer to most problems, fire and lots of it.
