Payment has been made on the custom fogturbo manifold. In addition to the bumper exit bellmouth exhaust, there will be a "downpipe" fabbed up to allow for a stock style rear exit exhaust to be attached to meet certain track regulations/draw less attention when needed. A quick swap via the VBand and either the business or the party setup of the mullet manifold can be had.

I've also decided to stop asking the internet for advice and am going to continue my build as I want. I won't be touching the case halves with exception of machining to the pistons and I'll run it until I blows. I don't see that happening with my power goals and E85, but I'll go 2.5 closed deck when it fails.

Don't expect progress to fly along here as I've recently been picked up to spend my summer collecting sand in the Middle East. Goal for completion is end of the year 2017 so I can make dragon runs with the Atlanta guys in early 2018.

Not because I don't appreciate the insight, but because I get so much conflicting information and responses from people who don't read the whole post that it makes my head spin and I end up with nothing in the end. I'm going to build it how I wanted to build it and the internet fame junkies can take it or leave it.

The point of this build is for me to have something to do with my hands on the weekends, and end up with something that maxes out the smiles per gallon.
