Try Just Engines http://www.justengines.co.uk/acatalog/Custom_Manifold_Examples.html . They make custom headers for engines.

Right gentleman quick one of putting things where I think they should go.manifold pipe isn't one I'm useing the  one I'm useing will come to centre of tank  so nice and tidy be here tomorrow.Need to get thinner rubber mounts so I then can get engine between wood rails.hope they do slimmer ones.Your thoughts on where things are will help me a lot.To get tank to fit I will need to cut wood until same shape as tank like this tank out of my spares box as should keep weight even as I use fuel.How much over hang would you think exhaust need out of the back of the boat.When I'm going to measure for flexible shaft how far do I need to have pass transom or is it best to get propeller strut and rudder fitted then workout length of shaft from them.115mm rudder off set should be ok or would you go bigger or smaller help please    :((   {:-{
