It appears he made a custom manifold and then had some 3 inch stainless welded for downpiping. This connected to a Callaway Systems turbo he bought in 1981, i have the
  6. Hi my names Braddock im an engineering student at UCF and i recently got this esprit (1977 in factory orange with tartan interior and AC, chassis 126H) project. Its been sitting since the 80s and as many of you will notice, it has some mods circa the 80s.
