How do they sound Ben? Getting excited to see these, even if my engine build is months away from completion.

My only concern with your car is that you run a 915 with the extension s and that may skew the results.. Not that they won't fit the same..

Was it a wevo 915 kit tail shifter? There much worse than mine. Mine is a Martin Bott 916 side shifter. Mine still requires extra clearance, but the Wevo 915 guys typically run short headers with dual mufflers.

or a very skinny M&K muffler.

The velios is also a side shifter, so it should be the same as mine.

The Vellios rear transmission cover requires a small spacer to clear a stock muffler (about the width of a flange is all), but the Wevo tail piece is much more intrusive. The Martin Bott system should be similar to the Vellios I would think.

The vellios and Martin bott rear cover are both patterned off of the 916 rear cover. However I haven’t seen a reverse switch on a vellios. I have one on mine and it does stick out about an inch.

No reverse switch on the Vellios. However, even without one, it does slightly interfere with a stock muffler.

Would it be possible to have added 1 1/2" to 2" to the inlet pipes for people (like me, among others) who are running a 915 trans?

Maybe for an upcharge you could provide the modification vs. having to insert/create spacers?

I'm working on a 3.2 with a 915 and your HE's - I have a Vellios tail-cone, but currently have installed a stock tail-cone (with reduced features) and the PMS steel adapter frame. From my measurements the Vellios tail-cone is about 3/4" shorter than the stock tail-cone casting (measured including nothing beyond the casting surface) so I'm assuming it's going to interfere with the muffler.

Its possible..

The problem is that almost every order I had on the group buy wanted something special or custom and it makes very hard to break even on the project when I finish everything up..

That said its possible on this to do the upcharge as you describe.

2” would be awesome. Maybe standardize on a 915 version and make a bunch of them.
