BRG has various type of green, Deep Brunswick Green is a 1920-30 variant used on the Blower Bentleys. Any idea from what color your green comes from?

Hey cactiscraig I was just looking through your build and was enjoying it when I noticed your expansion chamber, is that a two into one ? is it a one of or a production piece. Do you have any info on it that is exactly what I want for my titan. Sorry for al the questions but I've only ever seen the three into one before for the gt550.
thanks
