Had a little time between my trig and CAM class to finally get my intake manifold off today. It is so damn nice out, 55* and sunny feels soooooooo good out in my driveway, just wish I could skip class and take more apart but CAM is a cool class so...

This thing looks like some sort of sci-fi monster:

Dual throttle bodies:

And how the engine is now. (I have since covered up the fuel stacks since I took the picture to avoid getting foreign objects in there)

I'll get the fuel stacks off another time, I have no room for parts at the moment so... Once I get those off, I will be using that gasket as a stencil to machine up some phenolic spacers in an attempt to bring intake temps down as far as possible. (Yes, I have some CNC and G-code experience , hooray for ME major)

I will be cleaning up and painting the intake manifold wrinkle red if I can find some sort of commercial oven to bake it in. Pottery place down the road might be able to help me out... Among other things will be painted and cured as well. The bare metal attracts so much dirt and crap it is ridiculous, so I plan on painting as much as possible because that dirt gets on the bare metal and it is a PITA to clean out.

I can port out the intake manifold to match the throttle body because there is a like 1mm overhang from the intake manifold to the throttle body. I have to look more into porting out the entire manifold, we'll see what happens with that.

A lot of what ifs at this point, but still making progress...

Oh yeah, un-taped a lot of the harness, took a good 2.5 hours just to get all the tape and loom off...
