I spoke to early.. it failed.. sections started peeling and now I dont feel confident or want to risk running it..

So I am going to try again with the better tank thats is in the car currently.. but I will try electrolysis first, then go thru the por15kit.. I watched Aaroncakes video and after I realized it failed cause I rushed it...

Ahh yeah. POR15 is very specific about how it needs to be done for it to work properly aye. Fingers crossed this next attempt works out :D

Tank attempt 2.. changed the pot design... I made a test box to test the magnifier I got as my eyes suck short distance now being mid 40...

It worked.. I could see the puddle.. so I purged the tank and welded.. let it sit for 4plus hrs.. not one weep or drip...

Also patched the holes on my exhaust manifold as I am moving the wastegate outlets more inline with the exhaust outlets...

trying to get done for my first car show on June 14th... currently working on the exhaust manifold modifications - cut the existing wastegate pipes off and am repositioning them in a more direct flow with the exhaust ports to try to eliminate some boost creep we were getting on the last motor..

PIA.. hahaha

Water-Meth setup should arrive today so then I have to install that as well...
