Beetwenty's B10 2 door

I'm really liking the sound.
The best way I could describe the exhaust note is that it sounds like I've done an engine conversion.
Sounds deeper than the old exhaust system.
Thanks for the video D.
That one was new to me.

Time for an.uodate on.my build.
I have upgraded my fuel line to 10mm feed and added a 10mm return.

I decided to run my lines below the gearbox up front as it was a much easier path to route with the engine and gearbox in the car.

I also opened up the fuel pickup on my fuel tank to allow an easier draw from tank to pump.


I added a return to the top of my tank with a bulk head fitting.

The return placement is beside a baffle plate in the tank, and the return feeds into a 90 deg fitting pointing parallel to the baffle, allowing fuel to sheet against the baffle, reducing noise and aeration.
Up front I went with a Mallory fuel pressure regulator and a claysmith cams fuel.pressure gauge.

I have also fitted my TOMEI inlet manifold, which required a 16mm spacer to allow it to clear my GX Exhaust manifold.

The pic is a little misleading, as I needed to add long studs for the lower inlet/exhaust shared manifold studs.
This was to allow for some plates to pull the inlet manifold tight to the spacers.
Because the inlet was mounted on long studs, I thought I should add an additional support.
I joined the manifold to the block with a 10mm stainless rod.

This required some tapered spacers to create a square face for the mounting nuts to tighten against.

After fitting my 38DCOE carbs I cut and welded my aluminium airbox to match the carb spacing.
Then painted it red and fitted it up.

I'm booked in for a tune at the local carburetor wizard  in approx 2 weeks time.

After having success with welding my airbox I decided to make an overflow bottle from.aluminium also.

Might have to get some gas for my TIG one day
Looking good
Ive got no right to wield a TIG torch, as I have no clue how to use one.
But with some YouTube, and if you take care you can figure enough to glue things together.
Me being new and slow on the TIG doesn't help, but I find it super hungry for gas compared to the MIG.
That being said, once you accept it, The process is very satisfying.
I am very glad I gave it a go as It has opened up some additional ways to play cars.
I did make myself a miniature welding table from some 250mmx10mm flat bar.

This helps tremendously with set up, and I found just placing it on a folding table gives good access and very little garage footprint when not in use.
Not the best pic, but this sort of shows my table and chair working well for me.

I found that an old comptuer chair is a comfortable setup with easy access from all sides.

infact, alot of my garage can be pulled out for use and packed away when not in use.

For making good use of my space, this works well for  me.
