Keith
great work
why is there pictures with no holes in between ports and in between ports on others????
I was also trying to figure out valve configuration " intake ,spark plug and heather "they match
for number one and then  1/4 of the manifold is missing ???
is it camera angle ???

Lots of question marks there. I thought 2 centre holes would look ok, but they didn't, so I banged 2 more in, between pics.
Not sure what spark plug and heather means?
The intake pipes were just plonked on the top to see what the colour looked like, ie. could I leave them as polished. I decided not, so they will get shot peened shortly.
I couldn't get them any more rearwards because of the big boss on the end.
The pipes are seperated as much as I dare. The inlet manifold will then distribute further out to the valves.
My inlet pipes would have looked ridiculous if they'd stretched out to line up with all 5 intakes.


Thanks everyone for comments. Cheers.

The holes in at the moment are 8mm diameter and go in about 15mm. The through holes will be 5mm diameter, but they're not in yet. I need to make another jig first so I'm waiting till I get the other side done first.
I'll try and get a drawing up tomorrow to show the holes. The first thing I drew was the through holes, and then the rest was based around these.
Cheers.

This is how I'll get through. I'll need to open them up a bit with a small ball ended burr. Not sure how much air this engine will actually need.

Still plodding along.I've been cutting corners a bit lately as I want to get the thing running.
So stuff like variable cam timing and superchargers will have to be added later, as will odd looking
bolts and other bits and bobs.
For now I just want to see it running on a single injector, which is inside the top plenum chamber.
I'll post a pic of this later, I don't seem to have one of the plenum internals at the moment.

I've got the throttle position sensor working, and the injector wired up.
The Megasquirt has been programmed to fire the injector, so I just need to plumb the fuel in and it should fire up.

Keith - I'm sure that we are many here who are looking forward to see a video of it running - so good luck or should I say ; break a leg ?

Beautiful as usual from you.

What sensor did you use for your TPS?
I could really use one that small for another unrelated project.
