Here is what you want the 3 bar MAP to look like after you file down that 3rd ridge. I used hand files and patience. I’m sure it can be done differently but I’m not trying to buy parts twice.

Yep had to do just that for the Maggie. They include the identical 2 bar MAP from the P/T turbos. I just used a razor blade and shaved it down with that. Excited to see this thing run, I'm getting my internals ready and will be running the same pistons as you

Nice at least one person has benefited from this build. Keep me posted on your progress.

Pay close attention to the details in the last 10%. Be sure to test the fuel system for leaks before connecting the ignition and cranking it over. Great work.

Yes indeed. I’m not even going to hook the fuel pumps up to power while cranking/Priming the motor. After it’s primed well I plan to check everything for leaks. Have to agree that’s very sound advice for anyone doing something like this on their own. This one isn’t my first, but it’s my most expensive by far.

Might have been able to use a Dremel and a light touch too. I like that you are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

A little change of subject here and might be a little strange but that's a Nice looking floor you have there too. I like the color and tone of it. Is that bamboo?

Thank you Freddy. Not Bamboo that’s Cherry wood. I don’t think my hobbies allow for me to afford Bamboo

I also waisted no time installing them into the hat. Now we will be running -10An feed and -8An return line (Most if you probably already do it this way but I’m stubborn). Once my adapter for the rail gets here I’ll be ready to run fuel line again for the second time. I took the PTFE line out as the inner diameter isn’t enough for the power I intend to make. That said in the future I may consider going back to it. But I’m really not interested in running E85. Just wanted to be capable of doing if needed. Since we have very few E stations around here it’s not worth the extra effort IMO. But like I said before I’m stubborn.

Here it is in its natural habitat connected to a Fore Innovations fuel rail. It now can spend the rest of its life providing Deatchwerks 1500cc injectors all of the 116 fuel they will even need in life. Things just got real for me today guys. Those of you along for this ride still I can’t thank you enough. Those of you who drop in from time to time. Hopefully I’ve entertained you all a little.

Damn it you’re right on that first pick but the second one should fix that. The best part about this one is the Inner diameter is perfect. It’s all -10An inner diameter with a -8ORB side to connect to my rails. It’s a really nice piece surprisingly.

I love the look of custom car parts. Like PC parts, there is just something about well made components! You have some good looking stuff there ;)

Thank you sir. I put in a lot of for thought. Not that it always pans out. But no one can say I took short cuts on this one.
