      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.

                    So I have no clue how to embed videos nor do I know how to work any social media.

                    But I wanted to share this video of Blake showing how the manifold he built for me works properly. Meaning as exhaust goes in one port is scavenges the remaining exhaust out of the other ports. Thus building a good collector. I’m assuming the theory behind it is that with the suction the turbine will constantly have some force coming down on it. I could be completely wrong. But all in all cool video.

                    https://youtu.be/9jmVyDqiOpc

                    If a mod knows how to embed it that would be awesome and much appreciated.

                      I always enjoy getting parts for my build from my wife. This Christmas she got me a valve adjustment tool, turbo to mani gasket, and 38mm wastegate gaskets. Nothing exciting but all necessary parts to get the turbo motor all put together. Hopefully Blake got all the piping needed this week to start and finish the downpipe and wastegate dump.

                        That's some seriously clean tig welding. I can't wait until I get my welder.

                        Nice job.

                          Blake does a great job for sure!

                          So I decided to start tackling my rust issue, not sure how it came about, so I need to figure that out, so this issue doesn't come back.

                          This is what I started with:


                          Started removing the sound dampner stuff to see if the rust is hiding underneath it, but luckly it wasn't:



                          After grinding down as much rust with a wire wheel and sander:


                          I plan on using POR-15, so I washed down the area with the degreaser they provide, and then did the whole process of keeping the metal wet with the metal prep solution they provide. They say to let it dry overnight: so here is where I stopped, tomorrow i will paint the POR-15. I know this isn't the proper way to treat rust, but I will eventually get a welder and teach myself to weld and fix it properly.

                            I had a turbo blanket and heat wrap on everything and it was a mess to work on, I eventually had everything ceramic coated and it is great! When I say everything coated, I mean all of it, from manifold to the down pipe past the oil pan, dump tube and intercooler piping. It still looks great 13 years later. I had melted a cooling fan with the blanket, replaced the fan after ceramic coating and no more issues.

                              What company did you go with? Jet hot is extremely pricey.

                                Whew, close call on the rust. When I removed rust above my gas tank (/replaced brake lines) I used POR15. Great stuff. Some disagree with it as it is very hard like a turtle shell. But turned out great for me, 5+ years later now.
