Here you go:

That's all the drive photos I have. Can get more if you want but not today because the machine is tucked away in a corner and not accessible.

I wish I had enough power to run my mill. So far my 20 solar panels won't do it. I can run every thing else.

What it would take is a couple more inverters at about 7 grad each or one big 24v DC motor. Or maybe a new engine on my 8KW generator.

Back to the topic.

I finshed my TB adaptor.
Here are a few pics.

Pretty part. How are you generating the radius cuts on your lathe?

When I don't CNC a part, I use a radius cutter and put it in the tool post holder. Works pretty good. He probably is doing the same.

Believe it or not, I use a router table (as in wood router) or a hand held router.
I've been using routers for years, LOL
Things you think of when you dont have a CNC mill or lathe or paying someone to do it for you.

Just make sure they are carbide tipped cutters & use cutting oil.
Plus a speed control is handy.
Also, make small cuts.

Thanks,

parts going over to a friend of a friends house to weld & make little more progress.

I have been looking @ a website that states the velosity stacks should not sit flush w/the bottom of the plenum because of air turbulence.
http://horsepowercalculators.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Intake-Manifold-Design3.jpg
http://driveninnovations.com/index.php?o...tid=6&Itemid=22
http://driveninnovations.com/index.php?o...tid=6&Itemid=22
http://horsepowercalculators.net/intake-manifold-design/intake-manifold-design
http://horsepowercalculators.net/the-horsepower-calculator
http://driveninnovations.com/index.php?o...tid=6&Itemid=22

I would have liked to have the velosity stacks raised up from the bottom of the plenum, but I thought the Ross machine Co was a simple & effective way to make the job easier to make a intake plenum.

I had given Douglas some tips on how he should make his plenum & to install the injectors directly over the center of the velosity stacks, (makes a good amount of more power that way) something just got lost in the communication dept. & they were located a bit too far away from the velosity stack, it still seemed to work though?

Well, I am still going through w/this intake manifold & see how it works out anyways.

Continued:
12 point nut for valve cover

Stainless washer w/built in green urethane gasket

Velosity stacks welded, intake runners welded


I am really impressed w/this guy doing the welding, he does this in his garage.

The extra welding material buil-up on the plenum is so I can grind/contour better radius' in the angles.

He took his time & did it all in about an hour.

The tapered pieces worked out well. Keep that friend! Nice welds. It'll be good to see it all together.

A bit more work done.

Sorry a little blurry.

This is the first intake manifold I ever made.

That looks pretty good man! Is that one of Craig's flanges that he machined or did someone else do that? Did you weld that? So when is it going to run

Thanks Mighty6,

it's my first attempt,who knows how well it will work.

I got the flange from Mike, so I think Craig made it.

I had a guy weld it for me in his garage, he's a gear head & absolutely loves to weld.
I wish I could weld like that.

No set time when I will have the 12 port headed engine even together, a long time though, low on $$$$.

My Camaro needs a lot of work & I need new front end parts,rear end parts etc.
Not just stock parts either, aftermarket Global West or Detroit Speed upper & lower control arms. Quadralink from Detroit Speed.

I like very pricey parts, well pricey for my income anyways.

And of course,house repairs. Kids private school costs etc, it never ends, so car stuff is on the back burner for the most part.

I do what I can, to get some sort of progress torwards my Camaro to satisfy my inline 6 urge.LOL.

Ca, cut after school day care programs so my kids need to go to private school/daycare. Ca is broke.

Need to sell some stuff to buy some parts.

I always enter my car on car TV shows in hopes they can restore it.
No luck so far.

No set time when it will be running. I know not for a long time though,, money is tight. \:\(

The more of it you stick together the better it looks. It takes time for those of us on regular/not so regular incomes to meet our family's needs and then to attempt to as you put it "satisfy my inline 6 urge". Your priorities are correct and your progress is steady, quality work. Are you listing the things you want to sell here? Wasn't that your Paxton supercharged set up a few years ago yours? Good stuff.

Thanks Beater,

I have some inline 6 stuff to sell,& SBC stuff,just used stuff for the most part.
I will list them,when I get a chance. Here, C.L., Ebay

The Paxton set up was mine, I sold it to a guy in Australia,have not heard from him since he got it.

That looks pretty good all together. What mm air valve is that? I'm guessing that is the air horn for the turbo? Did you buy that or make it?
