V11 LeMans exhaust crossover

I removed the pipes a the weekend and was a little surprised at the loud rattle from the mid-section :astonished: . It looks like a chimp has cut a square hole in the top of the crossover, knocked a few of the baffles loose and then made a mess of welding the top back on :confused: Was this some sort of tuning mod, back in the day?
Anyway - my new two into one with carbon can looks really smart :smiling_imp: , and it hasn’t stopped raining since I tightened it all up, so you can all blame the weather on me . . . :cry:

Good, much better than the weather of a week ago.
