I have merged the topics, so we have one nice engine building topic. You should edit the first post and change the subject to something generic describing the machine

Sorry, Normand. I still think it is better like this.

No problem with me, just wanted to edit my reply to avoid confusion.

Did you manufacture them the rods yourself, or is this a reproduction?

I notice that the FCStd model is in one part, while the real-life rods are in two parts. I suppose that the lost thickness due to the cutting process does not matter? (I know nothing about engines)
The first four where made ourselfes, later version where CNC produced by a friend (I am an aluminium welder so we "exchange" skills ;-)
This drawing isn't finished due to production process steps, the 2 parts are screwed together at 60Nm after that the hole is milled else due to internal material tensions it isn't round.

I love the intake plenum after the intercooler. How thick is the aluminum you used there?

All my sheet metal works are 2mm don't draw stuff like that, use cardboard for the base shape and copy those to sheet metal, some hammering, bending and the old English wheel and off you go... ;-)

You mean the bellmouth?
On the lathe but not how you think; a piece of tube, brute force, grease, some heat from a torch and a screaming fire alarm :D
