I have some updates with pictures! I finally found some time to work on the manifold this weekend, and I think it came out pretty nicely. This was the first manifold I used a real collector on, and it was so nice to work with. I'm planning to finish up the final welding over Thanksgiving weekend.
The short list for things to do is:
Finish welding manifold
Clutch install (FM Happy Meal)
Motor mount install (AWR 70 durometer, hope I don't hate the NVH)
Install new brakes, just because (goodwin 6 pot front, fm 4 pot rear)
Install new braces to make sure everything turbo fits with them
Hot side tube routing to IC
Turbo intake tube routing
Cold side tube routing to intake
Gauge cluster (Undecided on AEM or Stack gauges, leaning toward AEM because I have had good experiences with them previously)
Install new fuel injectors
I think that covers the gist of it. The intercooler end tanks will be another large probably slow fabrication job for me, since I am making the end tanks from scratch. I also need to figure out details on the turbo plumbing, and figure out who I am going to use for the tune. Moving slowly, but I am very happy to have gotten this far on the manifold this weekend.
