Default How to build a car from ground up

As a counterthread for the other thread.

I am afraid this might have been seen by some, but it is well worth checking.

The Celicas remind me of how Hyundai prepped their cars for the motorola cup (tub w/o a roof)... except the cars were new when they started the process.

Yes you would if you had the chance to run something like this.

Maybe pictures 30 and 32 shows the reason why manifold was made so flat.

edit: I wouldn't run a manifold like that [on my miata] if I had other choices.
