Hopefully...

I know them feels

Yea exactly. After the water pump is off the thermal affects will continue to pull coolant through the turbo if your supply port is lower than your return port.

Do you know if your lines are rated for vacuum? A lot of braided lines aren't, might not be a bad idea to check with a mitty vac.
Hmmmm, that does sound like a good idea. I'll check on that to see if it has that capability. I've also thought about getting a turbo speed sensor.

I've thought about redoing the manifold, maybe in Schedule 40 next time and more evenly like yours and to fix the slant (the current mani has a 5 degree slant down towards the front of the car), but with the way this turbo is made I'm not sure I'd have much luck. If I do though, I'm going to see if I can get enough room to use either hard lines or AN.

OK I think my turbo has good thermal siphoning then.

I have no idea if they're rated for vacuum, I didn't even think to check.

Where did you find the reducing Tee fittings btw if you don't mind me asking?

T-fittings from anplumbing.com. They were not cheap.

If I may step back a bit, could you explain the benefit of using the RX8 eccentric shaft? Sorry if I pull this off track a little, it's just that I am new to these cars and getting ideas for a project under my hood.
As well, does every FD owner on here have their own shop/lift/welding gear? I keep viewing these build posts where everyone has these capabilities. I wish that I did myself.

The reason(s) people tend to go with them is that A) they are cheaper to buy new from Mazda than the FD ones, and B) they are slightly lighter than the FD ones.

Not much of an update, but I finally went back and fixed all the picture links

Life and a lack of motivation has gotten in the way of this build, but I have made some progress. At least I'm staying true to the title right I'll post an update tonight.

Teaser for now.

Here is how the engine sits currently. Finished the hardlines a while ago, and did some powder coating.

You actually have been getting something done.

It is looking really nice. Almost too good to hide under the hood. ... almost.
