(I was following this thread V10 Intake manifold flap delete v. lock and Cleaning before it jumped into the actual cleaning. I just want to bring it back to the IM mod)
Apparently, my mechanic has spare time during this c19 lockdown, so he’s willing to work with me on getting this mod done while he replaces the leaking front crank seal. So I’m gonna try to get some sheet metal and epoxy and lock my gutted IM with the runners in long position. (see: )
I just wanted to confirm a few points:
- Is this a rough template for the SS cutout (i.e. open to the long runners)?
- I can find 304 Stainless sheet metal locally in thicknesses from 0.2mm to 2mm. What do I want?
- Is this what I need for epoxy? JB Weld HighHeat` or will any 2 part epoxy work (I have gorilla epoxy in the toolbox)?
