I got nothing to do so I might as well buy random ****. Get something to work with...


Honda ITR intake manifold


D585 Truck coils

Also 15x9 Bronze 6UL wheels and HD M2 sport roll bar is on the way. #ballin


Turbo is ready to go back in as I get new inconel stud from begi first. I modify the wastegate actuator point straight to the lid.

Manifold looks great.

Wiring looks downright scary. Clean that up.

I knew somebody is going to bring that up! My excuse is that I’m waiting to finish my LSx truck coil wiring and after that I sort that mess out.

I guess 70mm throttle body should be ok?

Holy rats-nest, batman. Looking good otherwise though, what modifications did you do to that ITR mani to make it work? It doesn't look like you cut the flange off and swapped it like most do.

As I wrote, it’s not finished yet. Just a test fitting.

I’m going to cut the stock flange off and weld it to the Honda IM. Stock idle valve is only thing that I’m not sure about. Should I modify it fit where Honda IAC valve goes or can I use it through vacuum ports…

Knife edge = bad for subsonic flow. Unless you plan on your TB seeing supersonic speeds. It's already way bigger than stock, something tells me that it won't be a restriction.

I have never seen a flat shaft, and i have seen many TBs they have always been round shafts.

Insert gay joke here!
