So, as I'm sure you guys can tell from the post above by Bryan, there is progress on the manifold! I'm really excited about this as its been a few months in the making. What started as a one-off manifold built by Glease Manufacturing is turning into something much more than that. After talking with Bryan a few times about the lack of manifold options for EFRs out there he mentioned how Fab9 was looking to offer something to the market so I introduced him to John of Glease Manufacturing and that's what brings us to the next few updates that will be posted in here.

Here are a couple more pics, one more of the collector and one of the target placement for the turbo taken by a potato.





For you guys that have Instagram you can follow Glease Manufacturing as he posts updates of the build and other really sexy fab things @gleaseman

Bryan was your shelf already cut or is it necessary to clear the intake of the compressor?

So I ordered a good chunk of parts last weekend that should be showing up soon as I get ready to put the car together.

- 2 Mishimoto baffled catch cans
- Innovate EGT
- ID2000cc injectors
- Walbro 430lph fuel pump
- Fuelab 515 FPR
- Snow Performance Meth injection kit
- Setrab oil cooler

I know the injectors are big, but I don't want to run into the problem of possibly overworking ID1300's so I figured I'd give myself some headroom. And from what I'm read, the ID2000's linearity is great and shouldn't be too much of a pain for tuning. Plus they're right around the same price for either one. Although there's always the possibility that I've made a terrible mistake.

Car should be moving to a friend's garage closer to home this weekend at which point clean up and prep of the car will start and hopefully the engine will be ready shortly after that.

This just keeps getting better and better. ID 2000's are bananas, but I like the feeling of headroom as well. Which setrab unit did you pick up? I'm also looking at those at the moment.

I realize it is serious fueling. I'm also trying to leave myself with a lot of headroom for down the road. The entire idea of this build is to do everything once, not needing to go back and keeping buying things again. The ID2000's will do their job at "moderate" power levels and will let me run crazy power levels when I decide to. And from my research the driveability tuning with them is relatively pain free.

@TheBandit - I went with the 25-row oil cooler

I had a dream last night that you dropped contact with everyone, sold everything off and you disappeared. It was a nightmare i never wish to awake from again.
