	Cool.  Thats impressive.  I really want to find a k24 one of these
days but the TUrbo Conversion has to come first.

	I'll be looking for your report on the 2-piece Manifold.  If you
could, could you send it directly to me so I can ealilly forward to some
other people. (I'm on Digest)    Also, I'd love to hear your reactions on
the IC when you get it done.   WHat type of EM bolts are you using.  Stock
or something better and less prone to breaking?

	I'm a little far away.  Sorry.  Is it a Sport Int.  How much are
you getting it for???
	THanks for the details
OH, Oops, I almost forgot.  Will the Support bracket mount up to the 1
piece manifold?  WHere does it mount, if it mounts to the Engine Mount
Bracket then it wouldn't work for me since my bracket will be a 4kq
bracket.  But that sounds like a good idea.  
	ANyhow, good luck.
