Sadly I didn't make it, turns out BMW power is not as reliable as hoped! Looks like it was a great event from all the photos on FB.

Re: What i'm driving to IMPTWENTYTEN

The washers sit half against the exhaust manifold and half on the inlet manifold, so they are tight on the exhaust but not on the inlet. Also because the manifold has much bigger pipes the washers I've used had to be smaller to fit.

Re: What i'm driving to IMPTWENTYTEN

I thought I'd give my Imp a test drive tonight before driving down tomorrow. I made it half a mile and my inlet manifold fell off!! :lol: :lol: I'm using a 28/36 banana manifold but it clearly doesn't sit right and seams to be thinner than the exhuast manifold so the bolts only clamp that properly. ...
