Nice Work!The manifold is the stock, low mount, flipped.
The power steering / hydro-boost will come off of the hydraulic pump that is coupled to the air compressor.
The hydraulic pump is off one of the big over the road diesels (they can be had for $50-$100 at truck wrecking places).
Oh yes......I used stainless, and warping was a big problem.Very cool. I am going to TIG up a similar intake manifold for mine. Did you have any trouble with the base plate warping when you welded the plenum to it? What thickness did you use for the base and the plenum? Thanks.
I plan to as well, I just wanted the extra volume for a hyd. winch.i have the same air pump. what is the gpm/pressure of the hydro pump on it? i want to run standard powersteering and hydro-assist.
JonI fixed the pictures in the first post.
We ended up changing to a Vickers V10 hyd. pump, we had it built for 1400
PSI @ 3 GPM
Here is a picture of it installed (with the coil-over off so you can see it).
Here is the link to the build.....
