Awesome build! Don't know how I missed it back when you started the thread. That flange adapter is exactly what I was looking for...you could go to market with that, but probably not out of inconel. Great job (y)

Wish I had the time, money, shop, equipment, etc. to do something like this. Beautiful work!
Thank you

The shop,equipment, etc= no problem

The time and $$ = problems (rarely have both at the same time) that's why I've been working on this for 10 years, though this year I'm making a lot of progress

Thank you Wyo

I hope it works as good as planned, its real tight and i'm gonna need to put a tight 90 for the waste gate or it will hit the frame, not the optimum flow, hope not to get turbo chatter. It's about the best we can do with stock manifolds. I just ordered the mandrel bends for the waste gate and down pipe

Dual Racetronix 255 pumps
EFI connections billet timing cover with crank and cam sensor to run coil packs with the Holley Terminator X
The billet timing cover would not accept any aftermarket timing pointer so I had to make my own.
Pointer not 100% necessary, but nice to have.

djsy934,
Did you modify the Y-block/install that fitting or is that how they come now? Nice build you got going there.

Didn't have to modify the Y-block but did have to modify the fitting. In pic 009 you'll see 2 fittings that Racetronix wanted me to attach together which made it too long and ended up in the bend of the pickup tube, in pic 008 you can see that I machined the OD taper off and machined an ID taper to match the other fitting.

Mine didn't work either when it was sent and I didn't get the option to use the fittings. Next time I talk to Jack I am going to chew his ARSSSSS out. Just kidding they are nice guys over/up there. Nice correction on the problem. Does E85 effect the no anodized alum?

E85 is non-corrosive and does not affect aluminum fuel system components
Ya, Jack is a nice guy, I showed him what I had to do, got no response back though.

They should make it the way you did. I would buy one and change mine back out. LoL!!!!!!!!!
Send me a fitting and I'll modify it for you, it's no big deal.

Another issue I found with Jacks setup was adapting to the stock fuel rail, he sold me a modified fitting with a rubber seal washer and another flat washer which is needed because of thread depth. The seal washer is to seal on a non machined surface on the fuel rail and there is nothing sealing the washer to the fitting. I'm not comfortable with this, fuel leak = fire. So I will be making billet fuel rails.
I am not bashing Jack, he's a great guy, just things I'm not comfortable with and if others are doing it, they may want to take a closer look.
See pics to see what I'm talking about.

I used an Earls fitting I believe for that connection because I already had installed steel braided lines on my truck. The other that needs to be looked at is their fittings on an Accufab pressure regulator. The depth is not deep enough for his fittings so I corrected that issue with an old Kirban's unit from a Buick GN. Bottom line is for the audience (IS TO CHECK EVERYTHING).

Got my fuel rails made, designed them so it could cross over in front of the T-Stat.
They are 1 piece solid aluminum, the mount tabs are NOT bolted on aluminum angle.
Sending mine and another set out for hard black anodize then I'll engrave through the anodize to expose the aluminum.
I also have 2 other sets not anodized.
I'll post more pics once there done and installed.
