i figured you guys had done something like that since its a critical potential bottle neck for your 1000hp project. Or are you simply getting rid of it and making a custom tubular?
Sounds like that is something i need to seriously consider in the future some time. not right this instant.

I am going to see what we can do with the manifold once we get it off. Maybe I can throw it on the mill and really open it up to flow better.

I still am trying to do a pull on meth. The meth tank was empty so I got a gallon of meth today. I need to figure out how to purge it, looks easy in video however Tom is missing the jumper harness that HPF supplies so that you can purge it. I need a schematic to figure out how to do that without the harness. HPF is getting back to me tomorrow on that.

That would be a great option for those of us that want to step it up and keep the manifold, well if it works. Hopefully HPF gets back to you quickly so we can get some runs with meth.

You don't need the jumper harness. A simple wire or paper clip and you can jump out the harness to purge the pump.

I think you are underestimating the Steed Speed manifold. It looks like a log manifold but inside it is a true tubular header. The runner diameter is the same as 1.5" sch 10 piping. It has performed on par with the best tubular headers for the E36. That said, it would be nice to see where it corks up the system! I was going to run it on my car with the 80mm but I wanted to incorporate a twin scroll housing for better response.

Manufacturer claims 1400HP, but you know how that goes sometimes. I thought it was supposed to be pretty decent, but it WOULD be great to see some flow figures just to know for sure. I am hoping I am at a level where its going to give us more than adequate flow for our purposes. If had a 76mm and was looking at 1000+ HP i would be more concerned. We'll just have to see.
Note: Look into using their recommended SS sealing rings. They/he sent us a set for free. Nice guy BTW. Him and his wife.

Small updates...

Ordered a set of CCW lm20's... 18x9.5 fronts and 18x12 rears wrapped in 275/35/18 r888 fronts and 335/30/18 rears

Also some new wide body plans/matte white wrap in the works after SP is done with the car

Also the DSS axles will be ordered and still thinking of replacing my PSS9s with something better but the car is taking to much out of my house fund!

What's wrong with PSS9s? I thought they were pretty good but you are taking the car to extremes so you might want something even better.

Looking great Larry. I can't wait to see the final numbers. We got some great numbers out of Tonys HPF stage 3 with proefi today. 640rwhp on 92 octane. I'll post up E85 results tomorrow.

Thanks Chris! That M3 motor was fun to get the Vanos apart!! First time for anything is always fun! Supras are much easier to work on! LOL

We threw in some new viton seals and orings from Beisan Systems while it was apart. Very cheap upgrade and super convenient time to do it when the Vanos is apart. Buna N is what is in there now. They do fine until the day you wish you had put in a set of inexpensive Vitons when you had the chance.
Just sayin...

Hey Bdave that's actually something I was thinking of renewing is the vanos system, do you have a link to a kit I could buy? Thanks!

Looks like an awesome project!

Tom, I see you're from Toronto, where do you plan on getting your E85? Closest fillup to the GTA is Guelph...

I am actually from Waterloo, only 20 min from that e85 station but the problem is they won't sell to me as my car does not have a VIN with e85 compatible is what I'm being told, I went out and bought one of those flex fuel e85 badges you see on newer trucks and I'm going to put it on my trunk, hopefully they will fall for it and sell to me! If not I have a source for it in Ottawa and I can buy drums at a time which will last me a long time since I usually only drive my car on weekend.. But obviously pumping it from a station is a lot better than a drum although I found a sweet pump that hooks up to drums at princess auto for 400 with the nozzle and pump that plugs into the wall or u can get a 12v one for your car...

Found this. The price seems good for e98. Haven't checked if they ship. You should try contacting them.
