Looks like the outlet of your collector is already bigger than the 2.25" v-band? And you're going to put it into a smaller one? New collector time! Hope you have thought of a way to jig up the angles so you don't have to redo the rest. Why are you making the manifold two pieces?

Good thing i made more than 2 collectors haha. Thanks for your interest. Things are coming right along and I should have more progress soon.


Commanderwiggin, I haven't decided on what I am going to run for engine management yet. There are a couple options but I'm going to wait till she's ready.

It's late, I'm beat but here are some pics of some progress of the rear manifold. I should have the front manifold done this week, then I can start on bringing the manifolds up to the turbo.
