Detail of the fuel return manifold and turbine exhaust manifold.

The fuel return manifold is the silver ring at the exit plane of the thrust chamber. Fuel flows down the regenerative cooling tubes comprising the thrust chamber, reaches the fuel return manifold, and then flows back up another tube.

Turbine exhaust flows through the heat exchanger into the turbine exhaust manifold, where it is routed to the nozzle extension.
