    Thanks Luke, is handy to have an insight into what goes on in getting a build like this to work. Although my build won't cover as much as yours, it's good to know what needs to be done to make some of the parts I want to buy fit/work properly.

    I run Labree's with stock mani's, certainly appears to be more room in there - although that could be an optical illusion coming from stockies with the associated heat shielding etc...

    Impressive build.
    I'm always impressed when things are done right from the beginning. No expense spared here, good luck & I hope the dyno is kinder second time around.

    TB's and Linkages

    Here are a couple more photos, first is of an assembled Throttle body,
    We had an issue with the linkage that sits between the TB's, the centre bar that connects the TB's to each other was a fraction to long on 1 side and had to be shaved down to fit, not a big drama.

    Second photo is with the Plenum, TB's and Linkage properly installed, along with a few other items, like the new TPS, IACV etc etc....

    I found that if the engine mounts are centered in the slots correctly you can get the required clearance.

    What exactly do you consider the required clearance Mike?

    I have maybe 2mm or less clearance on mine, would that be enough or will I need more?

    Update

    So, several weeks ago, we had her running, seemingly ready to be dyno tuned.

    Unfortunately we discovered oil in the water, so after once again pulling the engine and stripping her down we found an internal crack on 1 of the heads.

    The engine builder (Engine Action) apparently missed this crack when he did his initial inspection of the heads.

    He supplied a new head and machined it to match our good head and we reassembled it.

    Engine is back in and we got her started again.

    Booked in next Tuesday for a Dyno tune.

    Great, have you got an expected number with the 2560 turbos?

    I looked at this car when i was buying mine, shame about it's shape when you got it however looks like a very nice build and great work.
