    Haha...yes, yes it would...It's been a big pain in the ass...I am still glad I chose this route, Its alot easier to work on which was one of the main goals.

    The intake manifold is complete. That was a ton of welding...Pressure tested and ready to jam! I am very tired. enjoy!











    Drove around a bunch tuning, first impression, feels good, sounds different, throatier, no loss of drive ability which is nice, top end rips. I am very pleased =) its almost turbo time

    I'm making 620 wheel jam powers with 590 wheel peanut butters. It's quite snappy. I did just kill my driveshaft after 35k abusive miles though.

    OooOOoOoo that would be plenty for me...shame about the driveshaft, its allways something though isnt it!




    OK little update..

    Making Chinese/Ebay garbage less "garbagey"




    Weight Reduction, this thing was HEAVY



    Viton O-ring Added



    Added French Bearings and shaft seals Ooh La La

    '




    So I've got her pretty much dialed in as far as tune, and WHAT A DIFFERENCE...the only change was the intake manifold...well and the billet flange that reposition the injectors much closer to the port....but Holy crap, plenty of torque down low, no power loss and she screams above 4.5k. This is definitely the coolest thing I have ever made haha...

    Next up, TURBO MANIFOLD!
