Nice, they need to update their instructions because everyone has that problem.

Seems kinda of counter intuitive spark A running cylinder 2/3 rather than 1/4. Clarification in the manual would be beneficial.

Nice looking build! I really like your downpipe design. I should have used a v-band on my downpipe instead of a 3 bolt flange. It looks like an easy install. I've probably gone through 3 torn gaskets from taking it on and off so many times.

Unforunately I may have to remove the v-band and weld the flanges together. I've only got about 1/16" between the band clamp and the steering column. I'm going to try it as it, but if it hits then I may have to experiment with a 1-piece pipe until I get BEGi to fab on for me (when the budget recovers from the initial build).

What's your price like on oil lines these days? I haven't measured it yet but I'm guessing I need about 14" -10AN SS braided drain, probably need about 28" -4AN SS Braid for the feed. Depending on how cheap you can get 'em I might go through you as my local hydraulics shop recently pissed me off and I'd prefer to support forum members.

looking good.

I'm starting to get a real bad itch to turbo the 99. I'm missing my 92 and just rode around in a friends turbo 93 yesterday
