Any way we can get a shot of the insides of the pipes at the head flange? hehehe. I like it. Can I copy it?

My friend might have some. I know he didn't crush the pipe to take full advantage of the ovaled shape captured within the head flange port match. Should make 0 issues though, no blocking, just little more open past the flange then an exact head port match ( i prefer that really as it helps possibly a hair with scavenging).

It was made as a friend of a friend to help me out and such.

I believe he jigged it for future usage. Just goto his website and shoot him an email. I know he's been busy with honda kits and such lately (civic/s2k/nsx).

Fitment was great. Its an older piece and still in fine condition. I had one of their bars in my civic and its fitment was also spot on.

Its a 4point that we might extend into an 8 point (shock towers rear and nascarish doorbars)

The same fabricator that made that manifold built a 400hp civic hatchback. It was scarry fast. I sometimes cried quietly to myself after I got a ride. That honda needed a cage. And a parachute.

Heh, I hope so... my naturally aspirated honda passed evo/m3/sti's all day long at gingerman and other tracks I went too.

All with a stock longblock 1.8L honda motor....

Having some MS buildup issues... I'll figure them out, just sucks

On a side note... anyone have a radiator out they can measure for me? I want to purchase a radiator to customize... and miata isn't in front of me this week to measure up the rad.

Height/width/depth and location of inlet/outlets.

Gratzie.

I'm excited to see your build. That manifold looks rediculously awesome. I can't wait till you blow my setup out of the water and point at me and laugh.

Oh please don't stop. I love reading about your setup. It gives me hope for the future and could persuade me to get a GT28RS when you're done. PLEASE DON'T STOP

not stopping... sigh
Heres visual update from my last day of work.
Like my ex-D1 car doors? Went with less damaged doors, manual and no mirrors. Anyone want power mirrors and windows?

Overall.

Closer

Really Close! Clearance is great with frame/etc... 3in DP without issue.

Little visual idea of IC location, it'll be farther forward and lower. IM will have stock TB flange cut off and new one for a Nissan TB added... giving more angle and larger TB.


Brakes are off, getting 1.8 brake rotors cut for install.
Headlights are gone, never going back...
Cutting of IM/Rad mount etc... begins next time... if i have time...
