Wow... Awesome build and work! The engine/turbo setup is almost exactly what I wanted in my car, but time and money disagreed with my plans. lol Keep it up and can't wait to see start-up videos!

Sick as all hell, I still want to see how you handle the compressor -> IC inlet.

It's not going to take long to turn those white stickers above the exhaust several shades darker...

Looking good. How soon before you think you'll be able to turn the key?

what are your plans for fuel delivery at the manifold? i noticed that you dont have a rail or injectors installed, and i didnt notice any holes in your runners for the injectors. will you be fabing a rail or do you got something else in mind?

injector ports and fuelrail mounts are on the head. main reason i took on building a manifold is cause i didnt have to deal with fuel injection.

precision 880cc injectors and a m-tuned or similar high flow fuel rail
walbro 255 intank pumop, aeromotive fpr, megasquirt, ect

Dude, I didn't see this thread before, and then I saw that Morgan made the sex-pipes! He did my tune a couple months ago, and I keep thinking that in a weak moment I will take my log **** to him and make me a bad *** vband setup. He does ******* awesome work, welds are 100% better than top-notch! Props to one of the boys in my hood!

Synapse is like 15 miles from my house, when you are going to get it tuned shoot me a PM so I can come over. I want to see your **** in person and **** up my ears some more in the dyno room.

Jesus Christ. I haven't seen this thread in a while and I gotta say... this car isn't ******* playing around. Great looking build. Those manifolds look bad *** and everything else seems really well done. Congrats and hope it all works out well for you. I honestly thought this car was already done by now. This was the first thread I subscribed when I started posting on here like a year and a half ago.

Don't worry brother. My build...eh resto. is well into a year and a half already and I know I still have a few more months to go.

Anyway....top notch man!!! That manifold is just brilliant. I was worried about the position on the downpipe but, it came out beautifully.

I agree that the manifold looks cool, but we'll see if it holds up to real track abuse.

+1 on this. But, fwiw, Morgan, the owner of synapse, used to race open wheel, and was involved in the build of an srt-4 that I think was campaigning in speed world challenge for a while. So, he knows track duty. If you ask them to build it for this, they will do it and do it well.

I am not a shill, he just did my tune and he walked me all through his shop. I've seen great welding in industry, and this stuff was top-notch. If you guys keep prodding and throw down the gauntlet, or something, I might have to scrap my plans for my 1.6 build reusing the FM log and have Morgan build me up a sweet v-band shorty for a 1.8. I know that's what I'll end up with, anyway, I'm just *****.
