So I ended up chopping of the flange and getting another one cut, I picked up a $400 Harbor Fright TIG for this project. It's been a while since I TIG welded, so nothing to write home about. I used a separate Nitrogen tank to purge the manifold on the inside(China skipped this step and that's why they are prone to crack).



I also angled down the manifold 10* to offset the engine tilt. This gave me better clearance to fuel lines(see green clips).

Word of caution, tilting manifold down 10* brought my compressor housing too close to the engine block and water pump coolant intake. I won't be rewelding the manifold, I will just move the turbo forward by fabing up an up pipe.

Slow progress is better than no progress, up and down pipes are done.

For some reason I had hell of a time making pilot holes in stainless tube, ended up going through about 4 drill bits. Last one was cobalt bit, it dulled before making the first hole, I re sharpened it on a bench grinder(the best I could on 1/8" size), I must of put some special angle on it because it cut my 4 pilot holes like it was a mild steel.

Nice progress.
The only thing I'm thinking... It'll be tough to replace that valve cover gasket once it's all done

The whole engine will be rebuilt once I finish fabricating everything. With this layout, it won't take much to pull the engine forward for major maintenance.

Got a boat, it's 1988 Bayliner with ford 2.3( looks like I will be adding turbo set up from 80's turbo coupe this upcoming winter). Weather been really nice past few days, so looks like there won't be much weekend progress on RX-8.

Damn that is excellent work?

Judging by your welding and fab work, I'm guessing you're an engineer? Or a certified tech at least?

Either way, I'm liking your designs for the exhaust and intake manifolds!

Yeah I'm an engineer, grinder and paint makes me welder I ain't. welding stainless is more like welding Titanium, If I knew that I will be getting TIG for this project(I was planning to get by with my MIG) I would of went with Aluminum on the intake manifold.

Looks like the server went down last night and lost my update. Long story short, I extended steering shaft 1-3/4" to compensate for the rack relocation. I used 7/8" .120 wall DOM tubing.

V groves increase the surface area for the weld.

I got the sway bar mounted, I used coupling nuts to extend the studs.



This is a crappy picture, but you can see the coupling nut on it. Later I will size a spacer for the stud that way my square tube won't buckle when I tighten the nuts.

Got FMIC mounted today.



I also test fitted the radiator



Lower outlet is too close to the steering rack, so I will have to extend lower rad brackets about 5/8".
