haha, I thought that was your catch can. Didn't even occur to me that it was the PS reservoir. All I wondered was why your 'catch can' was going to the PS pump. Where did you get the AN adapters for the pump?

I had them made at a local shop with a lathe for CHEAP.

Took them in a spare PS pump with an idea and new small allen head bolts for the pump and they made me an adapter.

The PS resevoir is nice being that it holds more fluid and is internally baffled.
I had an issue with the PS overheating and overflowing when tracking and i only once had that issue with the new setup. (without the cooler installed and being boosted)

this year with the power steering cooler i should be able to drive all day and never overheat the PS fluid.

Looks good. But please cross the lower line over the upper line before my OCD makes me go crazy.

Needs runner #4 to be finished and wastegate needs to be placed further from the turbo.

That manifold is coming along really nicely. Lots of clearance, long runners, v band, and you have easy access to the exhaust studs. If I build a manifold I will probably copy yours

I am interested but my build is on a budget and a new manifold is no needed to make my car go bang bang again. But **** I would love one! Can't wait to see the final product.

Intercooler is in from ebay and the alternator is in thanks to Steve at panic motorsports.

I hope to mount this intercooler in a strange position but gain airflow from proper ducting.

haha no.

the charge pipes will be routed below the pop ups with the intercooler essentially right below the rad support.

i will experiment with this and i might run a second IAT sensor pre IC to determine if the intercooler is getting heat soaked and junk.

will be using 18 guage aluminum sheet for ducting of the front end coolers. (rad, power steering, intercooler and possibly down the line an oil cooler.)

It sure seems to make life easier to have a right hand drive car for hot side parts.

im terms of BMC clearance, or steering shaft?

The miata steering shaft is far enough back that i wouldnt have associated many issues with it there...

It would be nice to have to not worry about heat for the MC, and my turbo clears the steering shaft just barely.

I can dig it. You getting rid of the popups or getting a smaller filter? From the hole on your drivers side and what looks to be a clamp on the passenger side I am guessing the popups are a thing of the past and the covers will be attached to the hood.

Shots of finished manifold?

popup function is gone. the hole on the driver side is just a peice of 3" tube i had so i can get an idea of what i need to do.
for now im using the stock headlights with the motors removed and bolted so they are always up.

finish welding of my manifold has been on the backburner so i can finish other peoples manifolds... right now is the big time of the year for people wanting to do this type of stuff in canada....pre season.
