      Well. Started is a bit subjective. The car is in place for the swap with all the parts needed there. Fluids drained. I made some arrangements so I can do it this weekend with someone that actually knows how to do a swap on these. I'll post pics of the finished intake tomorrow

      Its pretty! Haven't taken it home get to give it a wire brushing and a quick sanding, and install the injector cups, but here she is:




      You already saw the inside!





      And I'll post another mounted to the head later this evening.

      I plan on polishing it and the rail once I get sometime. It should match the valve cover once that's done as well.

      Yeah so. Turns out the fuel rail mount doesn't clear the cylinder head by *THAT* much, also have to bend it back in place to mount it the right way. Time get out the hammer. Tomorrow. Right now I'm tired and need sleep.

      F*** I lost my injector cups. Doesnt matter anyway. That damn engine was the worst thing to get out ever. But engine out. No time to install new one today.

      I personally wouldn't want to pull it twice.So much easier to pull the engine trans as a unit than separately

      Well I shouldn't need to pull it twice. Dropping the trans should be fairly easy without pulling the engine. Or so I hope. Going from the bottom, rather than the top.

      16v is in. Just sitting in place. It and the trans are mated. So now its just buy me some new injector cups and exhaust studs (can't believe I forgot those), bolt her down to the mounts and connect the accessories and manifolds, and wire her up. Now I just need time and a car. Being car-less sucks.

      The plenum is designed for each runner to maintain equal, and maximum velocity. Each curve is aimed to flow into a runner to maintain velocity, while each piston intake cycle does not disrupt the flow the for the next piston maintaining even flow. I spent several weeks running some fluid dynamic simulations in Maya and refining the design. That is what I came up with

      The flow math works out the way I want it. It is a lot better that just a round tube, or a square one. The end result should be no loss in low end torque (no gains though), but still maintain the higher top end SRIs are known for.

      The 16v is in. Just not wired up, or intake installed. Time has become a limiting factor again. I work on it a bit every weekend when I can though. Also. Stop blowing engines

      Dang its been a while. Update is the 16v is in and ready for wiring, except the intake. I angled it up too high and doesn't clear the hood. It is back in the shop to be modified. I may need to replace the rear motor mount (should be done anyway really), but we will see very soon. Right now I am looking for a place to put it in case it gets cold and snowy.

      Well. I think its time for an update.

      The car ran for a short while with no exhaust. Started awesome and got a small tune on it. Ran and pulled great with a hella high power band. That was only for about a day. I am now waiting for tax return time and buying a new turbo (story shortly) and am going to finish it completely. Hopefully I'll have enough left over to change the pistons and never touch the engine again (most likely a lie). I need some long ish term shop space and the engine and trans are being pulled again, and the bay actually cleaned out the way I planned. After engine, front end work, bumper, smoked e codes and grille and rims.

      I'll take a pic of the installed engine before I pull her out again.

      THEN next winter/spring I have something F***ing AWESOME planned and is in design stages. Heres a preview:

      OK OK....the center console controls will be replaced with a touch screen interface. Heat, a/c, defrost, blower fans ,hopefully radio, and maybe a nav system if I can figure out how to code in a map to the GPS module. It will be controlled by an arduino unit.

      Car is currently burried under 2 feet of snow :/ And its been cold. Don't worry I haven't pulled the engine again yet

      I just ordered my exhaust, WG, turbo, injectors, and IC core. Darn bills. Still dont have the LSD. Job searching at the moment so things will get better soon

      Well I found a new job with a giant pay increase. Now I am questioning everything I am doing with the engine. Should I bite the bullet and do pistons and rods right away? The engine should be capable to 400 hp in its current form without exploding, but there is always that lingering feeling.....

      I say put it together as is, and find another block and gradually dump $$$ into it. That way, if the current one does go... you have a solution. If it doesn't... well. Well I don't know. lol

      How is the progress on this one coming? Any info on what you did with the MS3? Asking because I'm been reading and studying a lot into it and the more I learn the merrier.
