You know, just this morning I was lamenting the lack of smack-talking hand model motivation in my thread...Welcome!

  Then, just run a rotary muffler to keep it a bit quieter.

Hahahahah that's great! I have to remember that line.

I just realized what the exhaust is doing. Can you flip the manifolds like that simply by installing them on opposite sides? Or was there more modification involved?

I just realized how awesome this will sound with all 8 exiting together!

I know on a 302 you can (had to do it). But to me those just look flipped, not swapped side to side since the collector points 'up' a bit.

In reply to Robbie & maschinenbau :

The exhaust ports and bolt pattern on these heads are symmetrical so yeah these are only flipped, and not swapped side for side

Buried back in the thread you can find that there were clearance issues on both sides with the manifolds in this orientation. Nothing is insurmountable with proper tools.

Dear pro drivers, wear pants.

I'm interested in how much difference the helmholtz resonator makes!

There are maths involved with this type of resonator. I didn't do any maths; it's shiny, so we kept it.

Well know fact: shiny helps the Helmholtzs resonate.

The math is trivial once you realize it's basically just a 4-d turbo encabulator, but with a reversible Tremie pipe and, obviously in this case, a fixed dingle arm.

Watch out for the spurving bearings though. If the pre-famulated amulite base starts side-fumbling, you're really hosed.

Making notes for this.... apparently the presentation has been delegated to me.

May happens to be my favorite, and also this is a pretty good concour theme of you don't yet have one.

Today actually felt like progress. We used the F word, honestly, for a couple systems; finished.

Fuel pump driver module - done

Most of the wiring harness is loomed and tucked

Coolant hoses - done

Trans cooler and lines - done

Exhaust hangers - done


And got the shifter mounted enough to fit and adjust the cable

Needs more intercooler. 
Also, if bob is gonna be James, I'll volunteer to send out a wig. For authenticity. And a floral shirt if I can find one.

Port and Starboard components?

(not really, good documentation like that will reduce confusion)

Green means go. Red means stop. Remember, our drivers aren' the brighest bulbs in the pack
