    I’m glad Pat is on it. Hes cleaning up the wiring.ย  Next on my list is to figure out all the supplies I’m going to need to modify the coolant connections, build a intake manifold, air filter, and exhaust. Its going to be fun. Bunch of fab.

    Just ordered $650 worth of tubing, bends, boots, clamps, and a muffler. I made some technical drawings for flanges to accommodate our custom manifold. Feels good to be making progress.

    This manifold we’re replacing with a simple pipe. Boxeer’s standalone is a simplified system without EGR or PDF. It has two electrically operated throttles that are no longer functioning with the removal of the emissions stuff.
