measuring down along the bulkhead to the mounting bolt for the boot bracket would be easiest, will see if I can do it.

The most accurate way of doing it would be to fit your lower linkage bar and then measure up, once you have drilled a 30mm hole fit the top linkage bar and slide the boot up to the bulk head, Mark around the out side of it and then just open the hole up but leaving a few mm for the thickness of the boot tube

fitting the lower bar isnt any help, it gets in the way!!

what I need is the dimension I asked for LOL measure down the bulkhead from the seam or upper heatshield bolt to the centre of the hole, or the bolt holding the bracket for the boot if that is fitted.

measuring in a vertical line wont help.

Sorry I have only just seen this, I used the template.....
I'll measure that for you today Mei but I honestly think having the lower bar in and using that as a datum is the best bet!

If I measure the bolt that holds the boot it won't really help you as mine might be wrong... It's already melted the boot and plastic collar that the bar goes through and iv only done 40 miles and that's only taking it to around 4k so the exhaust isn't getting that hot

I'll give you those measurements but please don't blame me if yours goes wrong!

Once you have drilled a hole kinda in the centre I still think the dash out is the only way to go as access from underneath is limited unless you take the manifold and subframe off!

Ha ha sounds like it's going to melt everyone's then as you're manifold is ceramic coated mate most people is going to get creamed, may have to invest in a really good bit of heat shielding for the boot and collar Sad

Mei I keep looking at your upper heat shield lower bolt and it looks completely different to mine... I didn't even have those holes as mine was an s16 which didn't have manifold heat shields, I had to drill my own holes and fit riv nuts, I also have a metal heat shield that had holes in the wrong place for a 6 shell (luckily for me it didn't matter)

Ross I cut a good 15mm off the boot tube and cut half of the boot down too.... As discussed with rich I think either having no boot or a big grommet that sits inside the tube is the only way to go!

Trust me there is no room for a heat shield

Ollie I'm talking about a bit of exhaust heat wrap lock wired in place? Should give the collar a better chance of surviving?

I guess so but it's the flange that connects the manifold and down pipe that it's close to so you would have to do it over the join and mounting bolts... Worth a try I guess

Trust me it's worth the effort, I was going to give up at one point but the gear change is so precise and accurate it's awesome

I might get rid of the boot and collar and fit a bit of rubber sheet with a hole in the middle for the bar to pass through and have it on the inside of the car or under the mounting boot on the engine bulk head side
