Default Terbo regal update

I posted a little while ago about making a front turbo log mani for this regal.
I actually had the design in autocad before the powerlog came out..
Anyways it'* been a while because my friends mig got messed up in a flood.
I finished the second mani and did my best to tack it up with the tig he had. (no filler)
Heres the pics:



The first one wasn't completely straight but the rear is.
Were probably going to take it this performance shop to have welded up nice. The fanges are in the mail and we still have to tack on some elbows before that happens.
Aside from this all we really got done was drilling and tapping the injector holes on a f body lim and installing it.
The battery has to be reloacated to the trun kand the fuse box is going to go in the battery location.
Were both pretty lazy and have alot goin on so this still have some time before it gets finished.

Damn, Mike. I really wish you'd been able to make those runners angled more before they hit the collectors. More like the S1 Manifolds.

But it DOES look like a fun project. Vids are required on startup!

Well, I didn't want to go to drastic so the sparg plug wires weren't an issue. Still better then the get what you paid for powerlog though.

Ummmm......I didn't buy the powerlog. Wouldn't work for my car, and I wouldn't want one anyway.

I wasn't trying to say that you did/would. I'm just saying the angles and overall design is better than something that is already out there. And that part of the reason is these are much more expensive to make.

Gimme a break. I'm 36.6663% towards a good drunk.

Keep us updated. Try that DIY header coating I found after welding/cleanup!
