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

First Start 5.3L Powered 1955 Chevy 210 Two Door
First official start up of my 55' Chevy now that the motor is mostly

a MAF sensor hooked up so when I first started it, the idle was jumping
around a bit. Last clip is after I added dual tailpipes out under the rear
