Finally got a chance to get something worth sharing done. I decided to go ahead and make a whole new intake manifold. I think this one, like the updated chassis will suite the entire build better. Hope it meets your high standards :D Let me know what you all think. Thanks for looking... Nick

A few progress pictures for everyone. This is the new chassis finally getting there. Put the rear body on and the intake and block so you can see where I'm going with this. I want to get the headers in place soon and start plumbing the hot and cold side piping. Then this car will finally be looking like something special. ;) Let me know how its coming. Hope everyone likes. Thanks for looking... Nick

This intake looks much better - good decision to do it again.
I like the jack stands. Did you make them?

Thank you for the awesome comments!!! EVERYONE! I appreciate them all, keeps me working. :D Yeah made the jack stands to get the whole thing up in the air a little bit for pictures. Before I get the suspension on it. Also when I'm building the suspension it will be easier to show the process. Just some old tubing and a little styrene, I'm glade you like them.

First,

QUESTION?? I've been wondering. I know a few people I know running true 1:1 twin / single turbo "outlaw" style cars are implementing 16 injectors. So the question is this: eight fuel injectors, or sixteen? I'm leaning towards two fuel rails on each side, each rail supplying 4 injectors to make a total of sixteen injectors. Sound good? or just stick with 8? Probably not a big deal just more of a what would you do? Thanks for you input.

Second,

I really do appreciate all of your time following this build. It means more than all of you know. This build and all of your great support are helping me get through a few less than perfect personal issues. Don't mean to sound lame, I just want everyone to know how much You All are helping. Inspiration comes in many ways around here. Thanks again.. And promise no more rambling.... :D Nick

Dude build is looking killer and that intake is outstanding. 8 or 16 it's up to what you want, me I would go 16 if my hands weren't shaking that day lol.

I have to agree with Robert, the build looks killer and I think that second try at your chassis you knocked it out of the PARK! Great execution. I have to totally agree, build the car how you would build it if you had the money available now and it was a 1:1. If you are running up against these guys and seeing it done, and it would be something you would run... Why that Heck not!?

Nick, you have taken a giant leap forward with the new chassis and motor inlet. B) Great work mate.

As for the dilemma regarding injectors.... ^_^
I'd stick to 8. Now, I say this only as an "ease of installation" point of view. Being 1/24-25 scale, it's going to get awfully crowded in there with 16.
Totally up to you though. Just remember, sometimes just enough detail is all you need. ;)
Build on mate.

Thank you all for the comments! Seeing the work you guys accomplish is truly an inspiring art. Thank you all for following this build. When the master builders say that something I built is looking great, I strive to continue creating something that matters. Something I will be proud to share. I thank you all again, I will continue to keep the quality up and learn something every time I look at your builds. I'm having a blast with this project. It is fun and rewarding to push past what you "think" you can do to make something you never imagined you could. What a long way a little plastic, glue and of coarse time can go. More coming today, thank you all..... Nick

Nick - you didn't say whether you were going with 8 or 16 injectors. I'm for being realistic, so my 2-cents says go with what it would be in real life. If you're following a 1:1 car, do what it has.

Usually cars on alky have 16 injectors and cars on gas with intercooler have 8, but on our 10.5 car we have 16 small injectors on gas because our intake was drilled for 16 in case we wanted to go alky.

Sorry I didn't answer. I am definitely going to try and fit 16 injectors in on the intake. I don't think it will be to hard. I say that now while its all still ideas in my head. lol I will get them in there nice and neat some how. Thanks for all the input everyone... NICK
