Battled with this oil feed/return for a while.
i couldnt get the return to pass through without hitting or touching off the downpipe,
but got it in the end.

Engine should be in the car next week!

My first time trying to weld steel... aluminium welding seems easier lol
cracks kept appearing around the places i welded so i kept following them around.

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG
im saving up for this downpipe since the welded one wont hold out much longer.

Also got the engine in today, gonna wire everything up and have it running before i start with the painting
