well finished welding up the first turbo manifold and ported it out. Then went ahead and fabbed up the 3" stainless charge pipe. All came together nicely.

Its only 3/8" thick at the small point, i know the load is applied at a different angle on that, but I still don't have any concerns with my spacer. I saw the thread about the breaking part, I actually bought some similar for my rx7, they are cast and very brittle. More than likely that car that was pictured, was autocross and hit a hole or slid off the track, then you would expect damage like that.
Good stuff man!!! I can't wait to see this beast move!

Also played with my clutch master cylinder... Gonna try the stock one first. Did a few mods to it, for 10 bucks, hell I'll try it. Welded up the stock line hole, redrilled on the side and welded a -4 An female bung to it. But I did this to gain the clearance i needed on the head, It had some contact , so it was either mod the master cylinder or the firewall. Heres what i came up with.







Also the part on the bottom, I tried to turn it again, after welding on it and it unscrewed off. Guess the heat let it come apart, Looks to just be a plug. So going to find out the thread pitch and see if i can just make life easy and screw in an adaptor, and just have a line off the bottom and cut the bung off the side. Why is it you always notice obvious stuff after the point... haha

Also the oil pan depth is also going to be shortened up when the engine comes out to get built. But still where its at now it has more clearance than my ls1 rx7.

the plug on the bottom of the clutch master cylinder is a m16x1.5, i couldn't find a m16x1.5 to -4 an fitting.
Already swapped the adapter to the bottom and cleaned it back up, be easier to route the line and a hidden look.

how are you going to route the exhaust header from the far side of the engine?

also, why steel charge pipes? why not Al?

right under the front of the oil pan by the steering rack. I built the driver side manifold last night but didn't take any pics yet.
V-bands on both manifolds, connected with 16ga 2.5" 304 stainless with a stainless flex coupler in the center.

I just like 304 stainless, shinny aluminum just looks cheap in my opinion... I don't mind paying a little extra for the 304 stainless.
The charge pipes along with the manifolds will be ceramic coated.

well actually i cut it off and put the bung on the bottom, welded up fine, right now my welder is only on 120V, not 240, so i only have 125 amps to work with so takes a little bit to get heat up to lay a bead. When its on 180amps, it gets down to business fast. haven't done much aluminum though. only on my 3rd bottom of argon in my welder (newbie at tig believe it or not)
