But if you've got a full cage that would make it less required?

Bloody hell I need one of these! I'm on the waiting list but I'm nowhere near technically competent enough to fit it :-s

Also looks like it could be a total b**ch with the dash etc in?

I can't see how you would cut the hole with the dash/heater in but apparently it can be done!

Iv only had an hour on it each day due to working late shift, should get it sorted today

I just had my dash put back in! I wont get the dash taken out for this just yet. My engine will be coming out in a couple of weeks though, maybe we can cut the hole through the bulkhead with the engine out...

They suggest to do it from the under side anyway.... However were is the drill bit going to go when it goes through....

Can i ask a simple question and an honest answer pls... (directed at those who have fitted/are fitting this)

I'm an average mechanic at best, my engine is in, my heater is in and my dash is in - do I have a hope in hell of fitting this by myself?

Now I know what I know for example what goes where it's a pretty easy job, I can't see it being that easy to do with the dash and heater in tho! You will either stick the drill bit/hole cutter/ cone cutter into the heater unit once you have gone through the bulk head!
I'll take a picture with a standard heater unit in tomorrow and you can make your own mind up what you think!

I personally think you make a much neater job with the dash and heater out!
My engine and box were fitted

I would love to see someone do it with the heater out in....
God knows how Dave/Collin did it! The tube that bolts to the bulkhead has two bolts and two nuts securing it to the bulk head, how they did the nuts up is beyond me!
It was hard enough with the dash and heater out lol.
Trying to get the nuts on with out dropping them and them disappearing down in between the 2 skins took a few attempts Sad

The only way would to use rivnuts from the underneath it then the tube assembly would sit away from the bulkhead

I'm willing to be proved wrong but for the sake of taking the dash and heater out and doing a much better and tidied job I know what I would do if doing it again

hmm, countersunk rivnuts? might not be thick enough panel though, tiger seal ftw Big grin

the matrix is on the opposite side so if you do manage to make a mess you wont get coolsnt everywhere.

probably need to go in from underneath I think, as the manifold and coolant pipes are in the way from above.

Yup countersunk rivnuts would do the job!
For the sake of an extra 30mins to an hour I would just take the dash out!

I didn't have much faith in the template so I just drilled a 30mm hole in the middle of the template, put the bulkhead tube in place with the plastic grommet from the end of the boot taped into the metal tube, put the push rod through and connected it both ends.

This finds the dead centre of the tube and the natural position for the tube, I then bolted it to the bulkhead, took the push rod out and then ground away from the inside until it was opened up to the internal bore of the tube!

No being on my back with a sore neck and getting covered in swarf

Hope the above method makes sence

You can either fit exhaust wrap or by fitting heat proof material to the tunnel
