All the stickers are probably going to be removed. I am not a huge sticker fan. And I dont have a full race mani... the previous owner did.

Alright... so the first real "snag" came up when i changed manifolds. Bottom line is the one i got was a custom piece built by someone who had some mods done that I didnt have. Unfortunately I didnt know this, so i figured it would work just fine on my motor... WRONG! lol

Took some time and a lot longer than any manifold install should, but she is finally on. I had to make some custom hardware because a standard M10 nut did not work. Also I had to source a step down stud because the hillbillies that did the head must have stripped a bolt and then just tapped it out to M12. So I bought a stud from an off road racing shop which has a stud that steps a M12 down to an M10 like the rest of my manifold studs. finally the guy who had this before me had a solid motor mount. I did not, so I had to grind a little bit of the aluminum off of the motor mount bracket to get it to clear.

I hope that the rest of the build moves a lot smoother than this, because it was frustrating that every day i went to work on the car, something else didn't work. And unfortunately the car is about 1 hr away from where I live currently, so it was extra frustrating because of this. Anyway, the pics of the goods:


My $20 stud :( (min order from SOR offroad M12->M10 stepdown stud)


Custom nuts that I drilled and tapped to clear the manifold:


Water neck was ground down to clear the T6 compressor cover and repainted. I replaced the top stock hardware with an appropriate cap screw. You can also see the BALLIN $20 stud.. (closest to the water neck on the bottom row):



Prepped and ready to go on:



Final result... the manifold is on for the last time!

I want to thank "Will's Supra" for this top. It has been the BEST packaged item I have gotten thus far! Also he got it to me within a couple days!



Got the fuel rail inside so the o-rings would soften up and i could fit them in the titan fuel rail. -10 dual feed with a -8 return
