I have been busy and have not had much time to work on the project. Here are a few pictures of the new air intake: https://i.imgur.com/RwTGZuS.jpg https://i.imgur.com/PnZTWpR.jpg https://i.imgur.com/sHcoUiA.jpg https://i.imgur.com/gCqGxHw.jpg https://i.imgur.com/EZX27EP.jpg https://i.imgur.com/iBmvO...

Re: Why are Mk.2 and Mk.3 GTi Engine Wiring Harnesses Different?

It would be nice to have these electrical diagrams specific to MK.3 GT(i) vs having to use the base Swift MK3 diagrams. For alot of stuff I have to use the way more complete diagrams from a 94 Geo Metro FSM. I have a 92 supplement and the 92 FSM for the Swift and they just have the large fold out in...

I have a lot more clearance than before, with enough oil drain slop. The front crossmember should not get to hot anymore. The 3" downpipe clears the radiator by a smidge. You have to buy a tight radius 3" CLR tight radius for that 90 degree bend. The 2nd 90 degree bend you want the opposite. I'm goi...

I have the new manifold tack welded together.

I got runner #2 done today. Slowly picking away at it. The angles on this thing is quite challenging. One more left then I can get it welded up. I still have to piece the rest of the down pipe together, but that will feel like eating pie compared to the cutting of the turbo manifold.

I got only runner # 3 done yesterday. I took a quick look at the other side and the possibility of running the wategate in instead of out. If I don't have to modify the front bumper support that would be great. Runner #1 & #2 have no obstacles to plan around. However, I'm trying to get the connectio...

I only got 1 hour in over the work week. Runner number #3 is almost done. I'm off to the shop in a few minutes to finish up as many of the runners as possible. I got my 2 45 degree fittings in for #2 and #3 yesterday evening. Now I can finish this up. I ordered up a 1 1/2" for the other manifold and...

I'm half way through the new 1 1/4" ram horn manifold with adjustments for the GTX2860R. The 3" downpipe fits, and I'm trying to get rid of the 90 degree elbow for 45 degree elbow on the air inlet. External wastegate is mostly situated. I will have to modify the hood latch support bracket to fit. I'...

Of course the turbo does not fit as is. I cut apart the turbo manifold to change the angle of the T3 flange so it is 5 to 15 degrees out instead of in. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough 1 1/2" on hand so I started the build of the Ram horn manifold 2.1 version using the 1 1/4" schedule 10. I'm hop...

Took apart the old setup today. I'm a little bit of time away from checking the fit of the new turbo, 3" to 2 1/2" down pipe, Tial external wastegate, and 3" inlet piping. The outlet piping should not be too much of a change going from 1 3/4" to 2". I was calling it close before I stopped driving he...
