ITB’s continue

A bit more progress today in preparation so the manifold can be completed. I couldn’t quite run the pipes at the same angle as the holes in the head due to using the stock manifold. I’ve opted for a shallower angle that will result in a relatively smooth transition between the pipes, manifold and head. I could always completely custom make a manifold at some point in the future.

The other big step was to get the throttle bodies properly spaced. I cut 10 spacers on the lathe exactly 11mm wide. There still a lot to including the minor issue of welding the pipes on – not sure how this will work but I suspect it will involve doing a lot of grinding to clean it up!
