    decided to have a go fitting my new plenum



    as you can see the boss for the temp sensors is to close to the thermostat housing and will need to be plugged and i will fit the sensors into 'WATER TEMP SENDER PORT SLEEVE' from GAUGEPLACE


    modding the fuse box to give me more room



    i have cut it flat and will mount it closer to the wing on a flat plate, had to do this as it fouled the throttle

    the ivc needs a simple mod, the fuel rail needs cutting so the fuel feeds from the left hand side
    if your good with your hands YOU CAN DO IT

    very nice indeed. That manifold looks well made, what are your thoughts after fitting?

    its not all done yet, i need to make a new cold pipe, and a few other things, it does seem well made the only big problem is the temp sensors fowling the thermostat housing

    That manifold looks like it takes top feed injectors rather than side feed.

    takes the standard fuel rail found you just need to bend the metal feed pipe a little as it hits the manifold
