    Yes, the plenum is purposely tapered some. Just a couple degrees.

    Good bit of progress tonight:

    -welded around the outside of each runner inlet flare for strenght and so they looked a little nicer

    -started porting the runner inlets, one is completely done, two roughed in

    -welded two more runners fully to the head flange

    -welded around the INSIDE of the three finished runners so they can be ported nicely

    -ported one runner at the head flange

    Looks awesome. I guess I can just see why it is an improved design, haha.

    Getting closer.

    - runners fully welded inside and out

    - runner rough ported at head flange

    - runner inlets completely ported and smoothed out

    - plenum welded on

    Basicaly I just need to add the tb flange, and end cap, and some ports for vac lines (likely I will just weld a piece of 1/4″ plate to the backside that I can drill in tap.)














    - mounted the crank trigger wheel and sensor for the “final” time





    - and made a block off plate for the huge hole left by remvoving the heater box, a/c evaporator etc. I am going to relocate the coolant line for the new mini heater box to this plate as well as the two connectors for the engine harness (and probably for the wiper motor)

    Looks great. Are you leaving it the raw finish?

    Probably for now, until I know its good. Im thinking about having it ceramic coated eventually.

    If not, just silver powder.

    Im going to basically attach the blower motor , by using part of the normal housing, basically directly to the heater core. I will only have defrost, but whatever.

    Cabby is just sitting baically, since I have been so busy with the cavy lately.

    Drilled and tapped a plate for vacuum lines and the IAT sensor and welded it to the back of the plenum. Its basically right below the wiper motor, so the lines should be pretty well hidden.





    Almost finished wiring the coils. I need to add some red heatshrink to the +12V wires, then finish shrinking the pieces that finish the ends of the mesh. Instead of the coil harness being tied into the main engine harness it, along with the injector harness, will have their own firewall plugs. I like to run separate plugs for each anyway, to make service easier, but this eliminates an extra connection and keeps things neater.

    - got alot of the new engine harness done the other nite. Still waiting for a few new connectors for the IAC and the injectors etc. And also some more mesh loom. Pretty much the entire engine harness is cut to length and ready to be terminated. If the parts come in by wed I may have it finished wed night.



    - finished the heat shrink on the coil assembly. The wires all all cut to length and ready to be terminated.




    - mounted the FPR to the firewall (it used to mount to the strutbar). Looks like just the one line between the fuel rail and the FPR needs to be shortened.



    - drilled and tapped the fuel rail for the pressure gauge



    - fab'd up a mount for the MAP sensor on the intake manifold, as the FRP now mounts where the MAP sensor used to be

    I know we haven't been chatting much online anymore, but I've been following the build. Looks awesome buddy. I'm gonna need to come out and see it again when I'm back on the mainland.
