Can anyone confirm that an intake manifold flange for a 1999 is the same as a 2002?

i know somewhere down the line they change... but im not sure when.

What a nice manifold you have made!

I can confirm intake flange is the same on the 99 as the 01. I just put a gutted 99 intake on my vvt head.

Thanks dude!

I am starting up a side buisness building manifolds and custom parts for people.

The week after next I hope to do my downpipe, charge piping as well as a midpipe for a 1jz-gte toyota soarer.

Managed to weld on the wastegate port and plumb the turbo for oil on top of finishing another manifold.

Looks really good. Will the intake be on the other side of the bay or is that just where the filter is sitting?

Wow, that oil feed location is sweet. I'm surprised it hasn't been done before...at least not that I've seen.

Astro, the filter is going right infront of the turbo off a 30 degree elbow.

Dg, thanks dude. I figured it mademore sense that way.

There was minor mods to the location needed to allow the fitting to fit properly.

It was steel though so grinding the surface flat is no big deal. And from there its just a drill and tap with 1/8 NPT.

Edit: The idea is also to keep things that can leak in plain sight, so if they do leak, i can see it and quickly fix it as opposed to last year where it was all hidden and i had to try to determine the "Leak-zone"

Dropped the valve cover for sandblasting and machining to fit the new toyota cops at lunch.



Color suggestions for the valve cover? I am going to get it powdered!

I am thinking candy red to keep it matching the AN fittings.

on the inverse of that candy blue could be dope too.

Yeah, that seems to be the concensus.
My powder guy just got back to me too and he said he has the stuff to do it.

I just need to get the cover back, and weld on my fittings as well as the bridge between cylinder 1 and 2 which is going to be milled out to fit my COPS

Waiiiiit!

I recommend boring a vent hole for a catch can before you powdercoat!

Also weld up the breather.

Being done my friend.

The valve cover needs to be modded after machining being that the center section between cyl 1 and 2 need to be filled with new metal due to the milling.

Do you think -10 or -12 would be best on the valve cover?
