Well the head ports are larger than the new manifold (aussiespeed) so it looks like the manifold is off to get machined!!

Engine back together finally.
Did a bit of research on the aussiespeeds..they are "meant" to be smaller on the manifold side apparently..
I was going to say that but did not want to cut across what you were doing. When I dealt with Aussiespeed their recommendation is don't touch the size as it messes with the flow speed and they have specifically designed their manifolds and tested them with this in mind. I have left mine as it came from Aussiespeed, and it delivers a much more even fuel spread across the cylinders than any of the other manifolds I have used.
Yeah thats what i read but for some reason i thought that it needed to be port matched..glad i called aussiespeed first..phew..
New rear parcel tray..
So progress has been slow and I've replaced/sorted a few things that i hadn't planned to do but these rebuilds have a tendency to blow out..I hope to have it all finished by september (birthday), just need to wire in the dash/finish interior and get it on the Dyno..10891953_10153610859092366_475822834606346806_n.jpg1779972_10153610942652366_3879151482248567431_n.jpg10410578_10153626240312366_2470402658559738693_n.jpg
That bay looks really neat man. Very nice
OK so project TE (part 1) has wrapped up.
So the result is that I had a few teething problems with the car after finishing mainly timing,clutch,hurst shifter, linkages (was an auto c4) etc etc but overall its come together nicely.
Its still missing a little when the secondaries dump fuel in so i do need to get it dyno'd and sorted but when its on power band its
perfect. its awesome..it just screams now when the throttle is wide open and keeps going to about 6000rpm.
I may have to change that cam tho as it kicks it at about 3200-3500rpm, it was an auto with a stall converter but now a manual so power does seem to come on a bit later than i would like. (crow 14650)
Whilst i am happy with the power i am getting together a block etc to Turbo.
I have attached a few pics for reference but for now am happy to cruise around Brisbane and our car club meets etc whilst I'm
building the turbo motor.

Looking good! And definitely go back to the silver wheels!!!
What are the differences between a 4cyl and 6cyl body, i want to get a rolling shell and swap panels onto my 4cyl te.
