Sorry Bruno, you lost me at JB weld.

Downing Atlanta kit would have been a great idea, and probably cost the same.

Ok fine, he'll use devcon...

And isn't the Downing/Atlanta kit close to $4k new?
I'd imagine you might be able to find a used one for $1500-$2000k but they don't pop up for sale very often.

Im actually using QuikAluminum its the stick where you cut off what you need and knead then apply. Ive read a lot of great reviews and applications similar to my needs.

I was just kidding around. I don't really care what you use. If it works... it works!

Aren't you in engineering?

Bruno, mock it up, get someone to weld it. There's plenty of shops that will do it for you.

Im not too familiar with aluminum welding.. Would the weld warp or distort some of the tb housing? Does aluminum welding generate more or less heat as steel welds?

Well, they don't look like they are that lined up anyways. So it wouldn't affect performance even if they did. But no, it shouldn't. Aluminums general melting point is 660 degrees celcius, Steel is around 1400-1500 celcius depending on the type.

I would get a piece of tube welded onto the intake mani side. Or, get a flange fabbed up to fit the itb's properly.

Oh about that... Im getting a friend of mine who works at a machine shop to machine the upper intake adapter to match the O.D. Of the tb and make it level. I have to do it this way to bolt the upper intake to the lower intake... The itbs interfere with the nuts to tighten. I had the same issue in V1.0

The quick aluminum is to fill the holes exposed by the injectors removed from the itbs and then add nipples for the catch can vac lines

I'm going to ignore this because it seems as though you were under the impression that Bruno was going to use JB Weld to join the TB to the upper manifold. As he just mentioned, he's using the epoxy to do something like this...

No lol, I pulled it from the link I posted on pg1.
I'm going to be using the motor I pull when I swap in my stroker to do the ITB build.

I stand by my statement. I would get a manifold fab'd up. Might see a bit better gain.
