Those are some nice tools to help make manifolds. Good to see things are coming along and doing things correctly.

I’m quite excited to have it as part of my tool collection from now on. Slow and steady like a big fat turtle lol.

While I have no idea why anyone would want to put in the effort to stuff a 2jz in this chassis, mad respect for the fabrication skills and fit and finish.

You should make the manifold grossly unequal length to replicate the inefficient but famous boxer rumble. Gives you just that little extra surprise factor.

TSSFAB has started on my subframe! Exciting.  Should be completed next week he said.

That is wicked, although I am surprised you didn't fab your own.

I originally was going to but the time required to properly design a subframe like this and keep angles in check is enormous for a one-off.  I simple don’t have the time this winter to make it since I already have to make everything else from scratch.  I decided I would rather spend my fab time in the visible front end as opposed to the hidden rear end.

My Icengineworks kit arrived this week.  This kit is crazy handy. I finally found some alone time last night to sit down and brainstorm various runner ideas.  After a few reiterations I think I’m satisfied with my design.  I tried to keep it as equal length as possible while retaining decent symmetry for aesthetics. 

Now I’ll tack a runner together, bolt it to the engine and double check fitment before going forth with the metal work.  Should fit mint though.  Also need to figure out how I want to do the wastegates.

You know, as soon as you start to give people equal rights, you'll lose grip on your power.

That is a super neat and clever piece of kit. I could see that paying for itself quickly in a custom fab shop between the time and materials lost experimenting and tinkering. Not to mention how satisfying it looks to have it perfectly modeled in advance.

I had no idea something like this existed. Again, nothing to really contribute other than I enjoy seeing these updates.

Ya this modeling system pays off big time in hours/materials saved when designing something like this.  Now to see if the metal version looks the same lol.

that kit is awesome! but man do they look expensive. I remember back in the day Spectre performance had a kit similar to that to allow you to build custom cold air intakes. It was super handy for piecing together intakes for random cars that didn't have aftermarket support or cars that were running aftermarket carb hats.

Loving the work so far, cant wait to see what else is in store for your build.

^^^ Thank you!


I now have 5/6 runners tacked up and should have the 6th done Sunday.  I’m super happy with how it’s coming out.   Going to be wild looking with the 6th runner in place.  Then it’s time to figure out my wastegate locations.


What a long process though! Wow.

JFC some of those welds are going to be tough to reach

There’s a little trick to that. Tack it all in place, weld a bunch of the joints, cut tacks at collector and head flange, full weld all runners , then weld each runner back in place to the collecter and flange strategically to allow most room to weld.

This build is crazy.  Don't mind me, just admiring the thread.  I hope to god this works so I can say I witnessed it.
