    Some more progess,

    Exhaust manifold all welded up, what an absolute pain in the arse backpurging it all, gapping all the pipes with a 3mm gap, welded with a keyhole backfeed technique on the root pass, then filler pass and hot cap.








    Exhaust downpipe 3" with wastegate routed back in under sump, I might add a flexi on the wg pipe.

    Make sure you use heavy duty mounts for your fuel rail pal i have built a similar inlet for mine . I welded 5mm plate tabs on thinking they would hold the rail . Seems they didnt like 60psi of fuel and bent like twigs at the weekend racing ending in fuel everywhere. Im now on welding solid blocks on like the standard manifolfd has .

    Nice build by the way glad to see someone else building manifolds rather than buying off the shelf .

    I think sri cable will fit aswell

    Yeah, thanks for the heads up! The other day I already remembered a number of problems back in the day with people using the thin SBD fuel rails and they were bending. I've got a billet fuel rail blank coming and I think, with short injectors it will bolt from the plenum behind kinda jamming it in. The last thing you need if fuel pissing out all over your red hot motor!

    I just looked at you build thread, looks mental, I'm from Middlesbrough originally, my Mam still lives in Redcar, your neck of the woods. I think I might copy you and go for the black wrinkle paint finish on the inlet and boost pipes when it's done, i'm not a fan of shiny engine bays it's a bit 90's max power ?!

    Ahh thats strange yea i only live 5 miles from redcar . And yea my last engine bay set up at start of the year was very shiney . Not purposely just because of all the new parts i had bought but im much happier now with it all dulled down and the wrinkle paint makes the finish look much more professional. Did you have novas when you were round this way ?
