So, how's she looking? Please don't tell me that paying the bills and working is getting in the way of the build.

Hey, I'll have you know that I'm a live and let live kind a guy. If Noobz wants to share his boy toy pics w/ the rest of us, more power to him. Now while not for me personally, what he and his man does w/ that horn is his business.

As far as that intake inflating at 18 psi, It'd be some weak ass steel if it did. Now,..if I was forcing double that into it,...then I might be worried.

As for the buzzing,..i could totally see how that could happen. There would be enough flexibility in the sheetmetal to move in/out enough have some harmonic effect at idle.

Well,...there was enough flexibility.

but then I welded these tubes between the top and bottom.

I call this pic "Bender's Colonoscopy"
It will be interesting to see how the internal aerodynamics of this work out. Swirls and eddies you don't need, but a smooth even flow to each runner is what you are looking for.

Mike, your project, your money. But it would be cool if you could have it flowed before installing it.

They make new pistons every day, so why worry?

Plenum design is far less critical with a boosted application. So long as the runners have equal port dimensions and lengths I would expect it to work well.

I never like Eddies anyway.

It's a flow or no go from this point Joe,...If the motor is way down on power, and takes a buttload of boost to make any power, I'd consider it. But for now that bitch is going on there.

Completion pics when I get Nicks fuel rail by Friday,..( Now sporting RD's fins)

One of the first things I did to the car after I got it in the garage. That manifold (Medusa) has been complete for months now. Matter of fact, the entire hot/cold side has been complete for months now.:confused:
