Looking great man! i like your thorough approach.

Did you repaint the manifold? which paint did you use?
No its original but with all the test fitting with the billet rails / injectors / checking clearance with the turbo inlet hose / and braided hoses running underneath, it did start the dreaded flake in places.

i guess down the line im considering trying an aftermarket one (tomei/cosworth) but for now it seems like an unwarranted expense as next on my list is the ppg gearbox.

So the original EJ20K decided to put a rod through the block just before it hit 98,000kms , so ive edited the 1st post in the thread with the new engines details n specs, let me know what you guys think as im quite happy with it, theres a few niggly things i want to sort but all cosmetics really, performance wise its pretty much where it needs to be.

and if anyone needs assistance/advice on installing or doing something similar, im pretty much sure ive encountered any headache possible while putting this together over the past few months.
