Some updates for everyone....

Yesterday I got two runner extensions tacked onto the manifold. As you can see I've done a bit of work to the manifold hogging out material. That's so that the end of the runner matches the ID of the extension.




I'll be going back once things have been fully welded to blend any remaining ridges...




If you have a keen eye you'll also notice that I knife edged the extensions. That's so that inside the silicone coupler there won't be a step for the air to run into...




Tacking on those two extensions allowed me to do this





First thing I noticed was that the dip stick tube was barely clearing the throttle bodies and would probably be an issue once the v-stacks were put on...




Yeah, that's not going to work....




Solution: Use the box end of a big wrench to make a number of small bends at a few points along the dip stick tube...




End result: I should be able to make it clear in the car...
