Today i have cut the sump and will big wing it to up the oil capacity again. I have also very nearly got the bulkhead cut enough to get the engine sat where i want it. I also did a dry run of the torque tube on the clutch with the bellhousing so i can go ahead and get an adapter plate made now.

The last few days have been a mission that i will be continuing tommorow. I'm building the manifold from scratch using 2 20V na manifolds, a toyota celica manifold and a length of straight pipe.
I wanted the primaries to be as long as possible to help with low end. So far the cylinders i have finished are within 1/2 inch of one another at 33inches.
The collector was a nightmare to get right but turned good in the end. Once its all been tigged i will blend the pipes into the flange.
I have left plenty of room for teh downpipe and plenty of room for a larger turbo upgrade if i need one!! :lol:

That's looking awesome bud!

Getting #1 and #2 to the same sort of length will be interesting...!

With another 90degree bend and a straight no 2 will be spot on, i intend to mirror it for no 1. Hence the mad snake bend around no 3 cyl.

I managed to get the straight pipe i needed today and got the manifold finished all 5 primaries are within 1/2 inch of 33 inches so i'm really pleased with that for my first manifold build. The flange needs a little tweek to get it perfectly level but thats no big deal.
Plenty of room around it all for downpipe and future turbo swaps.
