Striker Zetec Exhaust Manifold

Hi,
Im in the process of transplanting a Zetec into my Striker. Im hoping that I wont need a manifold specially made and I really like the GBS one which I had on my Zero. Has anyone tried this before? Apparently from someone else's blog the Raw one doesnt fit and I dont like the Tiger one too much.

Any experiences anyone?

How does the GBS exit? Over chassis or between, 4 to 1 or 421? the striker is a smallcar, and the engine is located off center so space is limited on that side.
I started to mock my own one up with intent of getting a stainless one made up by a fabricator when money allowed.
I got this far:

I have one in my garage which was taken off my Zetec engined Phoenix. 4-1 with a can and it is Zirotec coated but that has gone a bit yellow now.....200 collected if you want it.

I have a 1 year old GBS exhaust manifold in great condition with the welds around the ports strengthened by GBS

I'm away in Belgium until Thursday so can send some pics then?

200 wasted of it doesnt fit. The phoenix one will almost certainly fit as the phoenix is striker based.

True but I know the guys at GBS so I'd arrange sending it back. Just looking for people's experiences with strikers first to save time

Thanks Andy,
It fits perfectly and could have been made for the Striker. Really pleased and saved some $$ too
