So get all the branching for flow sorted out and then just lead two "simple pipes" to the rear.
okay. the lack of space is partially due to the narrow width of the body?

yes, i think people just refer to them as 'cup' style wheels. very cheap to pick up, got them for $1100 AUD (..including bridgestone potenza RE55S tires)
the issue i have with them is i think due to the spacing on the brakes in the 964, the offset is kinda ugly - the 'face' is pushed out, there's no lip like the fuch's. i can't help but wonder that the wieght of the central hub/part doesn't help either, as it wouldn't be so long if the face was recessed.
getting fuch's in the correct size is expensive it seems (well maybe not considering the alternative is now BBS)

i added some of the bike pics, not pictured i think but present was a buell or something to that effect? the guy next to me said they had a harley engine but shoprt wheelbase, and was bound to lift the wheel when it came through

This is my newly imported TVR Tuscan Challenge, with the AJP TVR Speed Eight engine. If you look closely the engine is so far back the exhaust has to go forward to get the length. Have a look at underbonnet pics of the speed twelve
