I know its not an SC, god forbid... but for those who love the 1uz, here are some of the pics of my manifolds I am building. Since its going in a MK3 Supra, space is SUPER limited... I really wanted to do a 1/3 cyl and 2/4 cyl collector scenrio, but I have to do 1/2 and 3/4 on each bank together. No worries, all of this pumping into a single HX52 should make it scream regardless.
More room in the SC... but not much. I just didnt see a way to keep all the accessories... so I opt'd for an electric PS pump and a small alternator on the opposite side of the downpipe.
On the SC, you can get away with AC and PS on the SC and relocating the alternator to the front.. and still manage to run a decent downpipe... if you keep the alternator in the normal spot.. you still can, just need a bit of creativity. On the MK3, the frame rails are a little narrower and the engine sits lower so the frame rail is in the spot where it makes it hard to do the manifolds... if the engine sat up an inch or so more, it would be fine... but lower center of gravity the better IMO.
Haha, 240mph alternator... it just happens to be an inch smaller or more.. and a single wire.. makes this a bit easier to deal with. Yeah I got a way to go still, but the manifolds are the hardest part, once its done it will be a walk in the park lol.
I am VERY inactive on these forums as of these days. Please respect that I don't reply to PMs very fast here.
