Your's are way superior to the RarlyL8 design, and I would have to disagree with your statements on scavenging and torque.

I've seen Moby Dick in person at the Porsche museum. No RarlyL8 headers there. They are the usual Porsche design with the tubes each blending into each other, which is of course optimal for rear mounted twins. I'm sure they spent some time getting there. Must have been something back in the day...

Brian - you've basically duplicated the orginal 935 shortie with burns collectors in lieu of the type used in the 70s....congrats and well done. The flow being equal will yield greater torque (which is something I don't need) and the collectors will prove better scavanging due to flow properties making for a more efficient setup.
