We need to start looking for extra intake manifolds that can be worked by you so the few of us interested in having the manifolds worked on dont have to have the jeep completely taken apart for weeks until the rework manifolds come back from you I'm sure they are around, probably a little more difficult to find, but I would think you would only need 2 or 3 extra sets on hand and charge a core return. I know I would be interested in having all the stuff taken off and any mild porting you are doing.

Doesn't sound like an easy task to take the top end off, but in the end it would be worth it!





Pulled out the intake manifolds to clean them up and do full EGR system delete. No more cooler, no more valve, its all going in the garbage. Made some plates to cover everything up. Sorry on CAD pics as I just made them last night and forgot to take pictures. No more swirl motor and valves they are going in the garage as well. I will port match the intake manifolds.
Intakes

No Intakes, what a pain to get these out. The EGR stuff is so much in the way.

Left Intake with EGR Cooler

Right intake

How dirty the intake is. I have been EGR and CCV deleted since about 40K miles so this is how much you get in that time. Also I ran methanol injection for two years and didn't seem like it cleaned it up much or it was worse and this is better.

EGR Cooler Gone

EGR Plates

TNAdanzig you are a machine...unreal fabrication! You are really talented, I can see why you wish you had a 36 hour day to do all your projects. Great job.

Thanks, I would really enjoy having a few extra manifolds. I have been looking for some used ones, but only found new ones. I picked up a used right manifold cheap, but that was it. I would only need about two extra sets. The hardest part is getting them clean, the machine work and welding doesn't take that long. To clean my set out I had them hot tanked then soaked in my parts cleaner for several days.

Thanks, never enough time in the day. I haven't quite figured out how to go without sleep yet.

Thanks, I to keep them coming. Still lots more to do.

Not much to update as I haven't had a ton of time with the holiday and seeing family.
Finally got my new rear shocks in. Sway Away 2.5" coilovers. Now I can start mock up and get all my brackets and cantilevers cut out. Thinking of acutally removing the stock rear craddle and fabbing a more bolt in option. Should look better and loose some weight. Will get matching coilovers for the front when the time comes for the extended control arms. Can't use that much shock in the front with so many stock components.

Also got all the heims, misalignment spacers and bolts for my steering upgrade. Now I just need to turn some aluminum extensions to join the heims. Everything seems to fit pretty well so far.

Some updates, not much as I took some time off this weekend.

Got most of the cantilever suspension parts cut out. Still have a few left to go. Hopefully the rest done today.



Finishing up the new steering setup. Heim joints and machined aluminum extension. Using some good aluminum. I really like 7075 aluminum, just wish it wasn't so expensive. Small taper on the extension as the heims are two different sizes.

Is that 7075 DOM tubing or solid rod?

Doesn't look like extruded tube to me, looks like the same solid bar we get at work from Alcoa in 2024 T351 and 6061 T6.

I am working on finalizing them and hopefully have some updates in the next couple of weeks. Too much going on.

It's solid bar. You can't really get tubing in 7075 that would work, usually to thin of wall stock.

A few updates to add.
I had to make some other parts last night so didn't get much done.

Got the rest of my cantilever parts cut out. Just need to weld them up and make new cradle to hold everything.


Also, played with cycling the rear suspension to see how well the tire stuffs into the rear fender. This is with the stock rear control arms. My new control arms are adjustable and I was going to extend them around .5"-.75", but after cycling the rear tire I am going to push it closer to 1" as that should give me more room around the door. The were designed to extend the length 0.25" minimum so 1" should be no problem. As it is I am going to have to cut quite a bit out of the rear fender. I don't really want to have to cut much out of the door. I want to improve the bump travel as I can to achieve as much suspension travel as possible. Trying to keep the front and rear pretty well matched.
