Intake Manifold Collector

Step 01

Fit the Right Connection to the Intake Manifold Collector, aligning the screw holes.

This is technically the left side of the engine, so the names of these parts are backwards. Also, the two Connection parts look very similar but are not marked. The locating pin on the Intake Manifold Collector will only match to the alignment hole of the correct Collector here, as shown:

Secure the Right Connection to the Intake Manifold Collector with two (2) HP screws:

NOTE: On my model, as I was completing Engine Pack 27 to connect the Throttle Bodies to these Connection parts, I found that my Throttle Bodies would not fit as they were hitting the red/silver Engine Cover assembly. I had to return to this pack, take this entire Intake Manifold assembly apart, and angle these Connections down by only using one loose HP screw. Keep this in mind if you run into the same issue:

Step 02

In the same way, fit the Left Connection to the Intake Manifold Collector, align the screw holes, and secure it into place with two (2) HP screws:

Step 03

Fit the two pins of Intake Manifold Collector C into the matching holes on the left side of the Intake Manifold Collector, aligning the screw holes as shown.

This step will capture the Right Connection part in place:

Secure Intake Manifold Collector C to the Intake Manifold Collector with two (2) HP screws:

Step 04

In the same way, fit the two pins of Intake Manifold Collector B into the matching holes on the right side of the Intake Manifold Collector, aligning the screw holes as shown.

This step will capture the Left Connection part in place:

Secure Intake Manifold Collector B to the Intake Manifold Collector with two (2) HP screws:

Step 05

Retrieve your engine from the previous pack. Fit this Intake Manifold Collector assembly down into the top of the engine, aligning the screw holes as shown:

Secure the Intake Manifold Collector assembly to the Intake Manifold A with eight (8) MP screws:

Step 06

Fit the Closed Tube to the rear of the Intake Manifold Collector, as shown:

Secure the Closed Tube into place with four (4) MP screws.

As I have been doing, I painted these screw heads with my Metallic Silver Sharpie to help them blend in better:

Step 07

Press the Closed Tube Cap onto the pin at this end of the Closed Tube:

NOTE: This is the point in my build where I removed all of my Spark Plug Covers and matched their numbers to the correct cylinder numbers:

Step 08

Retrieve your Engine Cover assembly from Engine Pack 1 and fit it on top of the Intake Manifold Collector assembly, as shown:

Secure the Engine Cover down with four (4) HP screws:

Thoughts


This model is truly looking like the real VR38DETT engine now that the cover is in place!
