    Maybe a really dumb question, but where will you be putting oil in this thing?

    Super clean.

    Finished up the cam cover. Was able to weld up all of the larger pin holes. There are a handful of smaller ones but they should fill easy with primer.


    Trimmed the timing gear guard about 3/8". I dont plan on running a timing cover and it just stuck up too far for my liking. And also trimmed off all the extra tabs around theedge and smoothed out any mold lines.














    Then I created a jig for the manifold. A piece of 1x5 aluminum serves as the base (with port holes for back purging), and then some scrap 1" tube was used to position the turbine flange in the correct spot.








    Unfortunately I still dont have the head flange, so in order to move forward with getting the runners at least tacked together, I machined this little disc. It will bolt thru the purge holes (which are centered on each runner) and keep the first weld el in the right x,y and z positions. Ill simply move it from runner to runner as I fit them.

    Got the first two runners tacked up on saturday. The disc worked perfectly to position them. Should have the other two tacked up tomorrow night. Then its wait time until the flange arrives

    Lots of progress last night.


    Finished tacking the last two runners together. The spacer worked great.











    Then I made up a temporary steel flange so I can move forward with the downpipe and charge pipes since the head flange is 3 weeks out.





    And bolted it up along with the turbo. Fits just like I had planned. It looks close to the firewall but there is probably 1.5"








    With that done I was able to finish up the downpipe.








    Plenty of brace clearance.

    Late last week I finally addressed the issues with the shifter relay bracket that mounts to the rack. Just like other people my Meyle rack wasnt made exactly right so the bracket was clocked wrong. Since the rack is already refinished I decided to modify the bracket. Adding a couple small pieces of 3/16" steel to the two mounting locations took care of the issue.








    With that now fixed, it shifted the relay lever upwards and into the header. I figured this might be an issue, but I didnt want the header design to be constrained by the shifter figuring I could fix it easy enough.


    Before





    Sectioned





    Bent the two pieces to match, welded a plate of 1/8" over the joint and smoothed it all out.








    After up:
