    opened the manifold up a bit too, gives it more area to cool the air.

    Love your build.
    Thanks for posting all the photos.
    What is the material that you machined the intercooler out of.
    Will the height be too much?

    As an aside, is there some sort of liquid plastic, you could cast the little radiator into then machine flat.

    every plug fits apart from the MAF sensor and throttle sensor :anger: do you need a maf sensor to run the engine? it has a MAP sensor, could i just use that?

    looking good!
    Great idea to machine the headers.
    Can you still get the rocker covers off of you need to.
    How did you go flushing the sand out of the manifolds.
    Keep up the pics

    hose for the sand, the oil cap and rocker covers could be an issue :cry: but time will tell :grimace:

    the manifolds were joined together with RTV blocking most of the passengers so a little less this time
