You forgot one major thing! A ROLLCAGE. Not fun when you get kicked out for no rollcage and you gotta tear the car back apart.
Also did you have the cosworth manifold machined out to match your throttle body, as cosworth is setup for stock body. There will be a huge ristriction there if not machined. Build is looking great and keep it up.

Roll cage was the first thing I thought of when I began the drag build 3 years ago. I bought 60ft of moly last January in preparation for the cage. It’s going to be run pretty local strip, Toronto dragway and at a ton of events in the north east. Most of which are NHRA. So cage is a must for sure.

Austin spoke to Skunk, it looks like their TB is a direct drop in for the cosy manifold. Time will tell if there is any truth to that or not. Don’t know many people running DBW TBs on a drag car. Kinda stupid if you ask me. But it does make my life easier wiring/custom fabrication-wise. So we’ll just have to see if im going to regret going dbw.
Hoping to have this thing finished for march next year for opening day.

Its funny, I just got done grinding and smoothing my water manifold and then just saw yours. Nice. I also did the AN-20 route and now think I need the black powder coat. My turbo is low front and centered so we are close there too. But my engine is in the back Jack...

Good build so far. I would love to see vids from every possible angle (in car, out of car, from the stands, fly byes, security cam) because this will be awesome

what are you using to strip the under coat with? Just heat and a scrapper or a chemical? Looks great.

Scraper, wire brush and solvent. Coated with self-etching primer and flat black overtop.
Should be light enough.
