More goodies from bursch came today! Me and Stefan were talking about it over facebook, he had me worried I was going to have to drop the engine again. I found out that with the right angle and a little patience, this header will slide up underneath the car. Granted... I do not have all the crap in the way most people have, but it went in!





I will express my joy with some robot rock.

Nice work, you make me want to rebuilt mine

I have the same header and exhaust. Just so you know, mine smelled like hell and smoked the first time it got hot, like the paint was cooking.
I suspect that you are going to closely monitor your freshly rebuilt engine on the first start and don’t want you to worry over this.

You`re lucky you don`t have a RHD car. There is a steering shaft that runs between #3 & #4 primaries and an oil filter adapter that further interferes with exhaust & starter fitment.

Here is the RC RHD version of the same Bursch Headers.



Will echo 924-76`s comment about the putrid burnt paint smell. It stinks. Isn`t very heatproof anyway, lucky the torch and MIG welder burnt it mostly off before the exhaust heat had a chance.

Have been happy with them though. Have lasted well, except for a cracked collector flange. Easy to re-weld and was probably due to hanging weight of a slightly mis-aligned system after suffering a broken OE spring engine mount. Fitted a short length of flexible pipe, the braided S/S type, after the collector, more or less in place of the short curved pipe that came supplied but never used.

Have fun underneath!

Thanks for the support you guys, means a lot. Thanks for the advice as well. I'll keep that in mind. Got all the fluids ready to go in. Don't think she'll be running today, but I should have most the wiring and everything hooked up. So close so close so close.

With a bung welded on, the header and the full entire exhaust, after shipping, it was just a hair over $600 directly from Bursch. Their customer service was fantastic, and if you need something specific, they'll work with ya.

The EFI is just about assembled. I'll try and get some pictures later today. I'm chowin' down on breakfast right now and just woke up. But the exhaust will be on this morning, the rest of the fuel system should be pretty much done.

So it is time to get a propane torch and burn that "paint" down before you install it. Burn the surface where the exhaust seals will be placed! If you dont,retight´the screws !

What is the advantage in having carburettors instead of a k-jetronic?

Sound? Look?

Tell me

Frustration perhaps? I'm not sure. I hate carbs so don't use them. I would think carbs would be harder to tune. Maybe it's just me. I am not a carb guy lol.
