    gave that a try this morning, it won't crush that much and wants to move around- it's on the same flat surface as the gasket, no recessed groove to sit in. weird that one port has the recess and the other doesn't!

      From memory, a 20c coin can be used to blank it, if you're a dodgey fucker.

        I wonder if it could be blanked with a thick rubber disk and a small smear of sealant. The manifold looks like it would support the rubber well, you would just have to get the thickness correct.

          We run 20mm Welsh pugs to block the holes

          Cooler intake manifold will make more power

            cheers, have slapped it back together sealed up like it was prior to the leak.
            will revisit this later when engine gets refreshed/if it leaks again!

              What are your plans for the year? Will it be seeing gravel rallies?

                      No official lap timing but mate timing from the side showed an improvement of 2 seconds from last time on the short track, really getting to grips with it now. Going to do one or two more then enter one of the test and tune segments of the next rally event (woodenbong I think?)

                        Good work. Just remember the aim of your first few events is to get to the end!!

                            Unfortunately time to move this on. Iíve bought a house and my old man is working full time again so weíll no longer have the time to campaign this properly.
                            Iíll keep doing dirt track days for fun but I donít need a car at this level (it won rally qld) for that.

                                Lol! Owning a turbo rotary rally car is on the list of things not to do....
