Many thanks! It's been quite an experience, for sure. Bodywork is definitely not my thing.

Been working on my house, so not much done on the X1/9. Today I made time to start on the 72mm TB revision. Using the 80mm TB, I've had a tip-in drivability issues that came back again.

Chopped the flange off an Accord intake for the TB side, another flange off an RSX intake for the intake side. I don't want to weld the extension to the plenum, as it may interfere with the plenum removal .

flanges welded after I determined the correct orientation to ensure bobbin & TPS clearance

MAP will go on the adaptor - have to weld a bung

Hopefully finish this tomorrow
