There is this thing called time, which only some people have, especially when they are fully booked with other work, so can't drop things at a moment's notice wink It's coming along, so don't worry, i'll do an update after the new year smile

Is this still moving on Begbie, I've just noticed a worrying number of significant parts for sale in that section of the forum?

Still going, engine was put back in on Friday. The collection of parts that are up for sale are items i've just had hoarded away with the car, so being up there over the weekend gave me a chance to pick them up and be able to sell them off to pay off some debts laugh

Good to see it coming along. How long do you think the manifold will take to make?

Nice manifold. I like the fact its not squished up against the rocker cover like most others are due to them also being designed to fit the Integrale.

BTW I know the nuts in the pictures are just temporary but in case you didn't know (and for everyone really); the name for the correct type of lock-nuts are M10 x 1.5 K-nuts. Spread the word and let there be an end to the tyranny of manifold nuts undoing themselves once and for all!

This is probably down to the turbo being moved to a more central position and that i have a slim line fan that is on the front of the radiator giving more room smile

Hello, been following your build progress a little.

I have come all the way from the integrale world over on delphi, im interested to know what size ID the scara manifold was and was the restriction that was mentioned in Guys report, a combination of undersized tube and tight bends, or was there more like a physical body preventing ample flow ? What size ID in comparison is the new manifold ?

thanks
