And now for something completely different

So, my bridge port is "f*cked":



And all I have left are some scrody 6 port stuff and a seriously hacked-up Pro-Jay (JW? Non-RB) 6-port manifold that I acquired a while back.

You've always done so interesting and far-out things for as long as I've been here. So I look forward to what you're doing with this. I think I was able to follow all the photos so far, but I do have one question. In the first photo of Post #2, are those hole for you to make some kind of anchor for the epoxy or are they there for something else?

Exactly. I had epoxy come loose in an intake manifold once, so I anchor it whenever I can. I drilled a couple holes through with a counterbore for extra overkill, then pushed the epoxy (Quiksteel) through and then mooshed it over like a rivet. Then more on top for good measure.

The one that came loose, was that the 6-port manifold that you had converted to your T2 block? If so, I guess I missed that somehow. Did the broken piece get ingested?

No, it was a 6 port FC lower that I added epoxy to the primary port roofs to match up to a GSL-SE, since the -SE ports are lower. Maybe 2-3mm difference. The engine was pulled to install the 4 port engine I'd been building all summer, when I got around to disassembling it, besides a broken apex seal (still ran and had compression, it didn't FOD itself, just had one seal broken and looked like it was like that for a while) I noted that the epoxy in one of the ports was loose. Not fully fallen off yet, but touching it with my finger made it break away.

SO much bad could have happened but didn't!
