    I saw something similar to that on an old Indy car one time. What advantages are you hoping to see out of the arrangement- or is it just for aesthetics "cool factor"?

    Neat project. The arrangement of placing the primary pipes in firing order can show minor benefits.

    Are you doing this for performance or looks? It is going to look great!

    As as function, what kind of primary length do you end up with? The Area of the collector appears large for torque benefit. You may want to experiment with some type of inserts or collector styles to see changes in torque. Something like a merge insert might be neat. Look cool as well as being effective. You probably don't need any more overall area than a normal pair of 4" collectors and less at the merge.

    Due to the size of the collector, they will just act as a set of long tube zoomies. The collectors is to big to produce any scavaging effect. But like you said, its just an exercise, and they do look cool. I have considered building something similar, except the pipes go into 2 collectors first, then into a large oval collector.
