Well....I'm no Chad but I think I did ok.....

Until I put the water neck on...lol....Gonna have to do something with the water neck...not sure what yet....but overall happy with the progress on the magna...I havn't put it on yet but did the modding myself.





lol...can you see my problem....


I figured since I'm already having so many problems...I might as well.......

Still have to redo the ports and might have do do something with the throttle cable bracket....not sure if its even close to what it should be....

Did you not get the black plastic fuel rail spacers?  you'll need them...

grind down the factory regulator boss flush and drill/tap it for a 1/8" NPT pipe plug .  Then drill/tap the capped end for a return line.  

Use a metric-to-AN banjo fitting, or drill/tap for a 90* AN fitting.

I made my own gaskets for the upper plenum and TB, you can find DIY gasket material at some auto parts stores.

Definately move the water neck to clear the intake, mine is about 1/4" or so away from the radiator hose, and I think some heat is absorbed from that when idling at least.

My injector bosses on my OG magna fuel rail leaked so bad and finding a replacement was next to impossible I found one of these on ebay.  The ends are 6AN on both sides and no regulator hole to plug.

I think i recall reading in a past thread about finding these spacers on an eclipse, 2.0L or 1.8L engine.

Is there any special reason that the vacum source for the  brake booster is setup for #4 cyl? Can I just put it on the plenum?

We take the vacuum from the back side of the manifold to the booster.

Yup where the threaded hole is.  I re-tap it and put a brass 90* fitting with and then a barb fitting in that.

I put mine on the #4 runner because that is where the stock hose went, that way you don't need to buy a new hose.  

Functionaly speaking, you can put it anywhere after the throttle body adn before any injector (like the plenum).

Thanks....This aluminum sux....My taps are coming out pretty messy....I'll be able to get them to seal but damn....Its odd to me...real coarse or something...I finished it today...Now I've got to get the fuel setup and finish the wiring.....I'm still not sure what to do on the intake gasket also. I bought one for the tbi manifold and that rear water port is too tall for the magna...Does any one have a link to some info I could look at?

You need to fill that port in and re-sise it to US spec.  Either that or make an adapter plate that can sndwich between the head and intake, but that will then require both US and aussie gaskets.

Are you using lube on your taps when you cut the threads?
