    While this whole car is a candidate for this page i thought id at least put this part here. Last week i found some 1/2” stainless. Spent a little time working one a head flange and a T3 flange for my manifold. I traced out the flange from a factory manifold and used that for a reference. Ill be using some 1 1/4” schedule 10 304 stainless for this. I cant wait to get started!! C0E4DADF-A19D-4E66-91C4-1893CF80D0C1.jpeg CD85EC61-F48A-4AB3-AE01-095D13A39F5F.jpeg

    This is very cool! Keep up the good work man, interested to see exactly how you end up engineering this swap.

    Well, upon getting my piping for the manifold (thanks Peepers!!) i found that even if i were to oval the pipes i would still have a slight gap at my joints. I didnt like that. So i made a new flange, this time out of mild steel. I feel this will work a lot better. I still plan to port the head side to match the exhaust port. I will most likely make a new t3 flange in the same fashion. 1C62D313-EFCA-4A3B-957F-E001FF30FAFC.jpeg 2CCF01BD-64F7-42ED-9D3A-23CB11A59BC5.jpeg FE6B4C43-7F24-4EB7-A18B-0E58C5D548AF.jpeg

    Got working on the manifold the last couple days! Constructive criticism welcome. Being such a tight space makes it quite difficult but i think im getting it. Ill possible have to move the upper control arm if/when i need to remove the manifold. 7F3E6C2B-6E89-4358-A726-6BB691165F53.jpeg 85B77976-A171-4845-A0C7-74BC2C2DB43E.jpeg 85D030CB-6E29-410A-B285-C1E07BF12ED1.jpeg 6E6F87D9-EC90-4B72-959E-B619255B3AFE.jpeg

    I can't wait to see the finished product. Quick question though, are you getting it chromed or polished? How will you finish it?

    I havent decided yet. I might go with some kind of ceramic coating. Depends on funds! My budget is getting quite thin and i have some more high dollar things to buy yet!

    You could do a spray can job, that silver works very very well and actually lasts
