It will not be complete for some time yet. Just don't get much time these days. Going down the Ford 347 rod path with custom Diamond pistons. Fastest95PGT, when you say adaptor flange, are you talking gearbox?? With the gearbox I had to change the location of where the clutch fork exited the bellhousing, and modify the shifter position so I wasn't changing gears from the back seat. I've had to modify the crossmember so I can fit an oil pan in!! All this will fit under the hood (we call it a bonnet in Australia). This is why there is no intercooler, I may have to go down the path of water injection if I chase high boost.
I will pull it apart and get some pictures for you during the week. It is just a 25mm plate of aluminum gutted in the middle topped off with a stainless steel 'lid' that the M90 is bolted to. The valve covers will also have some bosses welded to them for extra mounts for the M90. It is not an ideal performance oriented manifold, but as I have not much room, I have no choice. The AE86 is a light car so it should be a fun little car to drive. As for the oil pick up, yes have thought about what I am going to do but havn't started yet. Needs full custom pan and pick up. I will be running after market engine management with coil on plugs to eliminate distrinbutor.
I remember you posted up a while ago asking some questions regarding this project. So you weren't kidding . Nice work man, would love to see how it goes. Should make for a fun drive in the little corolla.
The fuel rails are also custom. I may have to modify them yet, I'm not sure if the pipe I have used is big enough. It's 3/8. I'm using Seimens stubby injectors, can't remember the rating of them but they where heaps big enough for the application. They will be run in sequential mode. I just have to mill a groove in the bottom of the plenum for the fuel rails to fit under.
Turk, yes I remember asking what power levels you could get out of standard exhaust manifolds. No far from kidding, got the bug again to get some more done on the beast.
