Default My mild steel manifold

This time the manifold build is just about done. In the pics its only tacked togother for fitment testing but i dropped it off today at my Dads house and hes going to weld it up this week so next weekend i should be putting it all togother. Hoping to get dyno tuned just after the new year..... Yes the manifold is made of mild steel and we cut the flange out of 1/2 mild steel (drill pressed holes).

Nothing wrong with mild steel manis. You will want to clean up the runner to mani connections on the inside so they have a smoother transition, and make sure the flange is still flat after he gets done welding.

yeah we will have to clean up those holes and clean up inside the large log when we cut it open for the collector flange. Should work nice those its just a small engine.

Alright all my test fitment has begun! I have a little bit of grinding left to do on the manifold inlet pipes and at the collector but all in all its almost done. I got my wastegate modified (extended arm, modified bracket) and have my oil line ready to go (oil inlet). Everything fits pretty nice with the exception of the wastegate bumping the crank position sensor but its no big deal. Heres a few pics im going to try to get the rest of the grinding done tonight/tommorow night and have it started this weekend (hopefully).

Looks good for a budget built HMT! But I'd be very weary of this, the crank position sensor is the only sensor on the engine that will cause the engine not to run/start if it's defective, and you don't want to be left stranded. Any other sensor you can deal with, limp mode is tuned in for that reason, but not the CPS. Otherwise, good luck!

Yeah awhile back i had to replace the cps it just kills the car. Its the actuators housing thats hitting the harness plugged into it and I've got it wrapped in tape. The previouus setup i ran the turbo sat sooo close it i thought it would be a problem. The only problem i had was after a year or so i had to replace it lol Now I got a spare...

Not as much as i wanted to but the wastegate gave me more issues so i had to do some more fabricatin on it and i had to pull the radiator back out and mount the fan towards the other side to make room for the intake piping. I had another big project this weekend and that was installing some lights in the damn garage! I installed two 8ft double strip lights and used what used to be an outlet to install a double switch and ran all the wiring then patched the hole from it all. When i bought this house somebody had conveted the garage two a "two bedroom" with a bathroom ghetto style. I had to rip it all out so the garage has been in the works for awhile but its coming along. As soon as i can find my HMT stickers theirs one making its way under my hood =-)
