Hate to be the one to ask it, but where does that part fit in the scheme of what looks like a killer project...

Looks like a collector and turbo flange for the exhaust manifold.

Are you still going LPG? That's a very nice collector mate. And what is the deck height of the MAN O WAR block? Is it equivalent to 351 clevo, 351 windsor or 302 windsor deck height?

File comment: the start of the wastegate merge, it is divided all the way up until 10mm from the actual w/g valve, I may not use this one.

File comment: you can see here its not as small as a T4 more a T5 flange if they exist, the housing has been ported to match, as much as I could before the entry area was increased, should flow more but retain the original A/R.

some more progress, slowly but surely, collector was fun, ended up building it then cutting it in half to weld up the spire, worked out very well but extremely time consuming.
