Part 25: Turbo Manifold Fabrication - My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration
Episode 25 of my '76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo restoration is another long one, covering in its entirety the fabrication of the turbocharger manifold. Suddenly the engine bay started to look a little cramped when I began to position the GT3076R, so it took some plumbing to build the required manifold. Constructed out of 1.5" SCH40 304 stainless steel pipe, it was fully TIG welded with an argon back purge. Yes, this is another long episode because I wanted to show the manifold fabrication process in glorious detail so that this video would be a useful resource for anyone wanting to build a custom turbo manifold. So as I say, grab your favourite adult beverage, sit back, and enjoy. Included in this episode: fabricating a 13B Exhaust flange, fabbing a merge collector, positioning a turbo in the engine bay, measuring, cutting and fitting stainless pipe and els, tacking in position, setting up a back purge, final welding, port matching, custom heat shields. A huge thank you to ATP turbo ( http://www.atpturbo.com ) for helping out with some of the parts used in this episode.

Part 31: Vintage Air Gen II Compac HVAC Install, Part 3 - My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration
Vintage Air Install Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bK2-A-ou0RM Vintage Air Install Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9veZ92j8I8E It's time for the conclusion of the Vintage Air installation on my '76 Mazda Cosmo. Yep, it's episode 31! Part 1 and part 2 covered the mechanical components and plumbing. Part 3 concentrates on wiring up the system, installing the ducting after adapting the stock Cosmo dash vents, and then powering up the system for electrical testing. I also explain a bit about how the MegaSquirt MS3-Pro handles the A/C system. It sure feels good to have it all done and I'm happy with how well I was able to integrate it into the car. Of course the final testing will have to wait until the system is charged and the car is running. Included in this episode: wiring the Vintage Air system, modifying Vintage Air harness to work with EFI/MegaSquirt, WeatherPack connectors, modifying Cosmo dash vents using Vintage Air adapters, cutting/bending/forming aluminium, electrical checks and testing.
