that is hardly backyard standard, GTFO
Nice job on the pedals, for a back yardie they almost look bought.
I have a backyard. Come make me some parts
Thanks for the comments guys
I'm using a UNITIG machine, It'll need a bit of duco before it goes in any magazines I think. Duratec is the Ford marketing name but yes its the same engine, the motor is full of Ford and Mazda bits, it was pulled from an 04 Mazda 3 FWD. The turbo is an s200sx. If anyone needs anything just shoot me a message. I might have some more pics later on.
you outsource the folding or do you have a big pan brake in the shed?
you 3D model stuff before fab (e.g. ex manifold)?
when making the sump did you need the top and front faces milled?
you got any progress fab pics of the inlet mani?
Adam (noizy323) is the only fabricator getting his hands on my car.
Some work Adam (noizy323) has done for me…please excuse my shitter…lol
Really nice work, how long have you been doing it for?
Nice work! Love the work gear

Man very impressed, backyard or not the finished product is nothing short of professional.
How are runners paired on a split pulse 4cyl manifold?
What did you use to bend those hardlines to shape in the first pic? about to make some lines up for my car, and unsure of how to go about bending them up...
awesome work man well done!!!!!! Are you self taught or do you have a background in welding cause those welds are faultless!!!! One of my mates is a boilermaker by trade, been in the game for fkn years and he cant tig like that!!!!
Got to remember to wear sunscreen on shoulders and arms when you weld with a singlet or you end up with nice tan lines. Big red ones if you weld using over 100amps!

I've been welding for almost a couple of years now, some people pick it up quick and others really struggle with it.
