I Know I have posted other pictures of the prodrive Group A Legacy and the engine bay but here it is again, this is what I wanted my intake to look like, I did decide I wanted a little less of a polished look and this is my manifold which still has the air control passage as the McRae legacy in Rothmans colors did

Great build! Keep up the good work. Can't believe I haven't seen this before.

I am mocking up all the parts to check fit and routing of the hoses etc. I will need to change some things to make it all work.

I spent the evening on the mill making a frame to protect my cooler that's mounted in front of the radiator, it cools the water in the intercooler, and it's vulnerable to damage and very expensive so it's worth the effort to make this frame to mount a meshscreen to protect it.

Nice work. No wonder your car is looking so good, seeing the level of quality at your shop.

Thanks, I have worked at several different places over time, This shop belongs to my Dad, I am doing these projects while working for him!
I spent several years running a shop taking care of and restoring vintage race cars and spent nine seasons in Indycar so this build I guess is somewhat normal work for me but the Legacy is undoubtedly the most intense effort on me both financially and by the amount of effort it's taken to find parts for it from around the world. The engine build is also yet to be done, It will require some help from my dad who is extremely good at building race engines, and known throughout the world for his building of race engines

Hi Silas, yes it's been a very busy year for me and I am trying to get a lot done before Christmas day. I have a goal of getting all the parts I have cleaned up and ready before then and also I want to have the car painted soon so I am working on it as well.
It will be great to get it painted, then I can work on fitting parts back on the car which will be the turning point of the project, things going back into the car at that point

A forum friend here suggested I read this thread. I love seeing the attention to detail that's covered in this thread. Right form the moment you received the car and even pulled the trim to see the truth about it. (Shows experience b/c those are the spots most places don't even know about.)

I'll be watching the rest of this build and welcome the chance to see it either on completion or beforehand.

Keep up the hard work. There's too many people these days that forget the skill-set that goes into this sort of work.

Thanks for taking a look at this build, I often see people make comments that they just now came across the build, I don't know what I could do to increase the exposure of my build, It is a Big project for sure and I appreciate the enthusiasm of the people that read it and enjoy watching the build. I will definately have it out once I get it built so you will have a chance to see it sometime I'm sure!

My god...... I feel honored to even be seeing this level of quality. Builds/work like this is an inspiration. Hands down one of the best threads if not THE best thread on this site.
