Exhaust is complete apart from one hanger. The exhaust tip is a slip fit with a u-bolt clamp, having it pointing down at the road should help a little bit for noise. Also the tip can be adjusted in a couple of minutes to point away from noise meters at racetracks if required. I have added some heat shield tape around the drivers footwell area and also heat wrapped the exhaust in that area.

It started today! after lots of fumbling my way through the ecu setup and mapping I got the engine started. Only been run at idle so far. Everything looks good, no leaks. It's also super loud, just about requires earmuffs at idle. I took a short video, quality is a bit average as I was running around checking everything on the car.

Better video uploaded to YouTube today. Takes a while to start as its a very rough tune at the moment. Revving up to 3500rpm, the engine free revs so much faster than I thought it would. The throttle is extremely responsive. It sounds just like a Mazda 787b, So I think I got the header lengths fairly close to what Mazda used. The microphone on my cellphone really didn't like taking this video

Thanks guys, its great to finally hear it run after so much work i've put into it. I have fixed the clutch issues by removing the return spring from the throwout bearing. Now I'm waiting on an AIM MXS strada digital dash. That will need a bit of wiring then the car will be ready for dyno tuning. Can't wait to hear it at 10000rpm.
