This is just for the runners. Its way more than I need. Discount steel up here has a drop section that you can dig through to get material so its a little more discounted than off the shelf. It was $250 for that but I am going to saw probably 2 inches off the length and chop it in half the long way.

So your going to build an intake that will cost the same as a Magnus or similar and not have any R&D behind it?

I wont have $700 in material in it and I am machining this myself so free and anything is going to be better than the cyclone gutted that I have on there now.

I know most people won't understand but there is a lot of satisfaction that comes from being able to create some from a raw piece of material into something that I consider to be a work of art and I am saying that for everyone that works in my field. I enjoy what I do and I will do this more as a learning experience and as a challenge. I am not selling these, and if it doesn't perform the best it won't bother me. Its more of a; "I designed that and built it". Not many people can say that.

You freaked me out. I was at home when I read that. No, its good I think you are looking at it upside down. Most of the intake flanges that are made are not flat across the top. I did that to make it easier on myself for machining.

Not sure if sarcasm? Sorry I was vague on that. I meant to say, the head side flange is flat across the top side.

Sunday Funday. Got my radiator mounts made. My measurements are a little off but nothing that I can't cut the pegs off and re-weld them won't take care of. Also got some mounting brackets done for the intercooler.

not sarcasm, i have a problem where things i say and type always sounds like im being an asshole. its the new jersey in me. what you said made total sense and i immediately understood you. im also crazy jealous of the CNC machine you get to use and make parts with. i want to make a bunch of 1 of a kind shit for my car. loving the intercooler setup.

Thanks guys. I will be making a lot of billet parts, I don't want to take it to far. I will be powder coating the VC. As beautiful as the FF VCs are, its a little to much for me.

Making some more progress on 909

Had a guy at work fab me up a bracket to relocated the power steering.



I was also able to work on finishing up the intake manifold. Still have a little bit to go. I am hoping by this weekend I can finish it up.
