Default RE: ESM FW D-9

In the end I went for a simple solution and modified the firewall to accomodate theJTEC inverted wraparound muffler. The piece that I cut out will be moved back 3cm and used as a rear wall in a box that will close the opening thatresulted. I will also reinforce the rear of the firewall with alutech plates. In the end, it looked OK. Onlyverysmall modifications to the cowlingare needed.

I have decided to try 1.5 degrees of right thrust, and will see how that works.
