Simple solution is to use the 13/60 manifold and system.
You could use the 1500 twin downpipe jobbie, but the manifold to exhaust seal is notorious for regularly blowing. Think the downpipe will fit to a 13/60 system, or indeed with a suitable adaptorfit to the 1200 system you have (may affect performance a tiny bit)

If you want top performance, get a 4 branch manifold and a vitesse system.

David manners say 14 days for a manifold £300.... not sure how that compares but maybe worth a call?

Hardly top performance then...

If it was made by man, it can be dismantled and rebuilt by man. Usually just not as easily.
