Here is some more porn for you:

First runner welded up:


All welded up, minus the wastegate and turbo flange:






So next step is for Blake to decide where he wants the wastegate. He was thinking possibly putting it coming out under the #3 & #4 runners.

Once he has that all done, he will move on to fabbing up the downpipe and WG dumptube.

Blake today kicked ass and finished up the manifold and I am super excited to see this in person soon. He was going to start on the Downpipe and Dump tube but realized that he needs to order more piping. So that will be on hold probably until next week.

I also was planning on purchasing a turbo blanket to keep temps down in the bay especially with the turbo sitting right by the oil pan. However seeing the surface rust on the turbine housing made me look for ways to clean it and prevent it from happening, which ultimately led me to Jet-Hot ceramic coating.

After doing some research I believe I am going to go this route, with the ceramic coating, not only does it treat and help prevent corrosion, it does an excellent job keeping the temps down, and its pretty much permanent. So unlike the blanket which only keeps temps down, if I need to remove the turbo for any reason I don't have to worry about breaking apart the blanket, as the housing will be sealed.

The coating costs pretty much the same as the blanket but with more benefits. I'm curious if anyone out there has experimented with this. I am also thinking of doing it to the manifold as well.

Anyways enough of me rambling here are some updated pics of the finished manifold:

Manifold all welded up and turbo mounted(surface rust ), now just have to cut and weld in wastegate flange:


Wastegate flange tacked into place:


Finished product:



For the turbine housing I plan to go satin black and on the manifold, if I get it coated will be the classic polish in case ya'll were wondering.

The block is pretty clean already, So I may just do a wipe down on it. I do want to do something with the valve cover. Im either going to powder coat it or hydrodip it. I am not sure if I powdercoatrd it what color I would want and if I hydrodip what pattern Id want.

Not as sexy as the new manifold but received my AEM X-Series Oil pressure gauge today in the mail:



I was going to go cheap on the oil pressure gauge, but after reading reviews of sensors going out with the cheap gauge I decided that I haven't gone cheap with this built and I shouldn't start now. Especially since this gauge could possibly indicate something going wrong and give me the time I need to shut it down.
