That's one long legged intake....No! You stay goofy, you sonofabitch!
So I’m about 3 hours behind where I planned on being. First, I forgot a couple bolt holes in the head got jacked up when I pulled it from the junkyard, so I had to run and get a tap and tap every single manifold bolt hole, just to be safe. Then, apparently I missed the part in the description that said this is a ‘trim to fit’ intake manifold.
I had to file and grind every single flange to get it to fit!
And the underside of the #5 runner. In some spots, I took off almost 1/8” of material. And I still ended up having to drill out the mounting hole on each end 1/16”. Two hours of fitting, removing, filing, over and over. I’m gonna write AussieSpeed and let them know. I didn’t pay $500 for an intake to do that much work to make it fit.
It sure does look good though!
This is where I’m at. Need to finish wiring the EFI, install the radiator, attach the fan, and finish the exhaust.
