Default Cool random DIY project

I was researching coil on plug ignition and stuff and I came across this build. The mans got skills. I need to get my degree and learn how to weld.

Putting current-limiting resistors in series with lo-z injectors is still fail, regardless of what code you're running.

I'm not defending the man but. The intake can be made out of various materials.

He never explained the rivets and jbweld so I don't know what that is.
