During a garage clean-up last week I found my 30-yr old Datsun 1200 fuel injection intake manifold. I had big plans to make my own EFI engine computer – from scratch – but after realizing how big a job it was, twin side-draft Dellortos were used instead.

The air-cleaner assembly is now complete, at least the portion under the engine cover. It’s mounted parallel to the cover and a foam gasket will keep it from sucking in hot air from the engine compartment. A reverse-pointing scoop will pick up air from atop the engine cover, and is needed to keep rain from getting into the inlet.>

Finished up the exhaust. Couldn’t help but spend some time on the trim ring due to how visible it is. Came out really nice 🙂
