Default amazing build

I don't have anything new to add really. But daaaaaaammmmnn...

I know it was a while back but I've got some questions about your intake manifold. The velocity stacks, are they off the shelf (if so where did you get em?) or made in your shop on a lathe? If they were cnc'd by you, I'd love a file if you're willing to share, same goes for the manifold mounting plate.

yeah hustler why do you say that? cause its not perfect equal lenghth?

as for the stacks, www.velocityofsound.com i belive
the flange i made, just double sided taped my hondata gasket to a the blank of metal and pick up and saved the hole locations on the ez track. i used dykem and traced the ports and went in and free handed them, then i finished them off and port matched them with a carbide burr

It needs a crane like the renault F1 pic I've made popular...emphasis on "I."

I'm surprised you didn't gut the stock gauge pod and put your gauges there. Decorating the dash with your gauges seems out of place on this car.

yeah hustler, i agree with you, i should put some bracing in there. i dont think i have to go to the extream of a crane setup, its not that far off the manifold, not as much leverage on the runners as those f1 pics. but i think a sold machined brace from the turbo flange to the head should help.

as for the cluster. i kept in stock for wiring simplicity, and to have a refernce set of gauges. its always good to be able to back up your aftermarket ones or vice versa. if i was gonna remove the cluster i woulda just put in a aim pista or similar. this works for now.


and i got eyeball vents on the from ebay already

what is it made of?

These ******* engines have some messed up vibrational issues, Manifolds that are fine on hondas crack immediately on a BP

Glad to hear... Still can't wait to see this thing up and running.

I was also curious about the thickness of the piping for the manifold..

oh well ****, I figured it was sch 10, I shouldnt have doubted you, haha

I would probably do some fancy bracing just for the sake of over-engineering, but itll probably be okay without it.

Twins turbo uses Schedule-40 and a crane on every manifold they make and they supposedly have no tubular failures after figuring this out. The longer the runners the worse the vibration. I need to get Abe to make one for me but it takes too much damn effort for me to do anything.

I'm guessing you meant www.velocity-of-sound.com

I went to your link at first and figured you were ******* with me cause you didn't want me making a manifold like yours. Not that I can rule that out at this point

OMG, this is out of this world, take your time and keep the photos coming.

On many of the pictures I have to really see to figure out how things go and why, very good attention to detail.

It fired very breifly on 880cc's and no maf. Atleast I confirmed my wiring is good and I got fuel and spark. Now to get that ms working

Maybe I am suggesting something you already know, but it seems like you could get close enough to get it running by loading a base map and scaling the fuel table (and corrections) for the injectors.

Might be the USB > Serial cable. I've always had problems connecting with those involved in my EMS experience.
