QV stainless exhaust header flange interest

I am having a pair of 3/8" thick 304 stainless header flanges made.
I don't have a quote yet, so I don't know price. Just seeing if anyone else may be interested.

Pretty



If you kick the 3 lightening slots at 30 degrees or so (basically match the end angle)you can remove about twice as much material wihtout much change in strength I'd guess.

That's a while off. My first priority this spring is to mate the T5 transmission and bellhousing up to the 348 block and crank.

T5 mated to a 348?

Excuse the ignorance but why would one wish to do that?

I am converting the 348 engine to front engine/rear wheel drive. Then placing in a small Italian coupe.
The classic American car philosophy. Big engine, little car. But Italian style.

This calls for a project thread!

that will be one very interesting gearing and transaxle mod I'm thinking.

Yeah, seriously... This needs a thread. The ferrari engine certainly means that it has a spot on a ferrari site.

Is the car an Alfa GTV? I've dreamed for about three years about stuffing a 308QV engine into one.
