You got me

Sucks to have to reorder for a ~4" section you need. Are you sure you're out? What about the piece you used as a "log"?

Edit: Actually, there's a 1-1.5' section in the pics, whered that go?

Dude it looks way totally awesome! I'm super pleased for my first mani (even though I didn't do all the work)!

I wish I had done a better job on those middle 2 runners. They point away from eachother a little bit :( I definitely know what i'll be doing differently next time and I think it'll come out 12349876539872345987 times better.

Thanks again Stan, see you wednesday night!

I cant wait to build my manifold for the .86 disco. May start producing 1.6 manifolds depending on how well it turns out.

Hmm, so you make your MS and then use everything you learn to make me a better one. Now you made your fist manifold, and want to take what you learned to make a better one. Wonder who it should go to....

In the distant future, yes. It's warped enough that the PO's relief cuts are touching, it's near impossible to get off the studs, the gasket surface sucks, and it's still only m8 bolts. It still works though, and after wayne's awesome MS and some injectors, I can't afford it. Not if I actually wanna track it at least.

Did you bolt it down (all bolts) to the head while welding? Looks like you got some warpage.

The funny thing is i did have it bolted down when welding the actual flange which is when i thought it would warp. Unfortunately i was wrong. When welding the butt joints caused it to pull the flange which is evident. I decked the flange but will definitely keep this in mind when building future manifolds. Im still new to this so i am trying to absorb every detail i can to better gear me for future endeavors.
