  12. Got bored and wanted to do something different that i haven't seen done before
  13. the step on the manifold is going to be hand ground away due to the shape of the manifold i cant jig it on a machine to cnc or even manualy machine it .

  21. Flow is better than the plastic manifold due to being a more open fluid design like the zetecs with the cast inlet I'm hoping to get a little more throttle response not really power .. Mainly just a talking point on the car Manfold drilled and tapped to accept the adapter plate http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/DFCCEE87-9131-40E9-BFBA-D8E8BFC66E57_zps9jwghocl.jpg These are the two new holes (red arrows) http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/8BAEE0B9-E9CF-462D-91A7-3553764F8966_zps2aj4ku6n.jpg These two now line up with two of the original holes in the throttle body (green arrows) the bottom one is an original hole on the manifold http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/42397571-813F-43B6-BD48-E510F92D4AF2_zpsld9rmzgs.jpg The new hole centre right is for a cap head bolt to hold the right half of the plate down http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/13755E6F-B58E-44B8-A767-E59DA372200C_zpsw3kdfga5.jpg http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/A78BBEFB-41C9-4390-B517-E84AF22E9A7B_zpsq3frdusz.jpg http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/18E9937C-6A7C-4EC5-A972-AEDDA666830C_zpsefla1bm0.jpg Throttle body in place two bolts passing through the plate to the manifold the right hand side held down by the cap head and right hand throttle body will be held with bolts and nylon nuts http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/35F0D53D-691F-4740-BF52-5A9D99C5F43D_zpsj0w7nc13.jpg
  22. Designed and had made an adapter plate to fit my zetec throttle body to the i4 manifold http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/0AB20329-0AF2-49BE-93F6-AFAAE78A573F_zpslyl1t0iv.jpg Bottom left hole lines up with an existing threaded hole top right hole I will drill and tap the manifold and the Middle right recess will hold the right hand side to the manifold which il drill and tap there .. The two left holes the bolts will go through the throttle body and into the manifold the upper and lower right hand holes il fit nylon nuts to the tray to hold the throttle to the already fixed plate http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/C46214D9-5920-4CFB-8419-0637825480B9_zpsv5i5bpwp.jpg http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/786F9236-4CA4-48E1-94D4-4D493B3017C7_zpskbnhx9hh.jpg
  23. Metal inlet plate arrived today that I'm going to mount the i4 inlet to http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/4EA5C4F8-A545-4143-8C1E-DFAE25013F5E_zpsd90l7fw8.jpg Just have to machine the plate in a couple of places so the fuel rail mounts don't foul it and it can sit flush and machine the top so the fuel rail can actually fit in http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/9FCAF5F5-2BA1-4793-BD47-47C6B8901573_zpsnyi3rbyq.jpg Then machine the ports on the plastic manifold to match as they run up at an angle but there's a lot of meat around that area so it's not a problem http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/EE88C997-BF9E-4441-B989-4BED09146563_zps3eseolsx.jpg http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/F6378D1E-2C57-4E30-BC08-BA6F60A6C805_zpstymurkgz.jpg
