This is one of a series of articles that examine how BTB can find performance advantages through the exploitation of greater efficiency, and these are some of the challenges that we have overcome in our past which will provide the background for uncovering the solutions that will shape our future.
The Mark 1 Lotus Cortina has earned it’s reputation as an iconic racing saloon car. From the images of the legendary Jim Clark 3-wheeling his way around classic circuits such as Brands Hatch and Crystal Palace in the ‘60s...

When long time BTB customer Mike Jordan told them he had built an Austin A40 race car as a bit of fun, they knew only too well that it would be constructed with the care and attention to detail that Mike always lavishes on all his cars.
BTB has 30 years experience of the design and fabrication of exhaust manifolds that improve the power and efficiency of the engines they are attached to. The first step in designing an exhaust manifold is to establish the lengths and diameters for the pipes that make up the manifold (or header).
If the digitally manipulated sounds of modern highly efficient low capacity forced induction engines leave you cold – the characterful and more expressive sounds emanating from classic sports and competition cars, are often a key emotional component behind enjoying your classic car motoring.
In the course of BTB’s work over the years, many current projects have had to be shrouded in secrecy. This can be because of the nature of the project, where an exhaust has been developed in collaboration with a manufacturer or engineering partner.
