It's in there!
Factory core support is gone.
Next two weeks or so are going to be spent connecting everything and routing hoses/wires where they need to go.
Might be able to drive it soon or it will sit till August..
Really nice welding and fabrication. I wish I could do that. Thanks for update. I was amazed with your last setup.
Yeah, I stumbled across a guy who owns a shop in the Phoenix area. He fabricates everything you can imagine for cars. Took him my turbo and told him what I wanted. Done. So far, I am pretty happy with the job.
Just bought all the fluids today, wires, fittings, and placed the battery on the charger.
Took it for a few short drives, makes turbo noises, and gets hot.
Burped radiator a little bit ago and got some air out.
Pro Charger Big Red Race blow off valve turns heads!!! Saw people stopping what they were doing along the road, at the gas pumps, and in front of houses to look and see where that street sweeper noise was coming from.
Exhaust is way too loud. It is louder inside the car than outside. Also scraped my stainless exhaust on the driveway first time out...GD.
Now, the fun part of tweaking everything to get it sorted and running correctly.
Where Is A Video!?!?!
Did everything fit under the hood? Street sweeper that is funny. I'm looking forward to the video also.
No. The top of the compressor housing will peek through the hood. I anticipated this and think it will look alright.
I had the trans rebuilt, as well as switching to a new cooling system, different rear gear, center section, torque converter, and cam shaft.
Where did you get the turbo from?
Just noticed the angle of the turbo.Someone recently on one of the boards was asking what the max recommended is for one of those turbos. If its yours, im pretty sure you're well within the range which is obviously good. Nice build. Have fun getting it dialed in. Itll be a beast i am sure.
Turbo is from Forced Inductions.
I posted a couple of threads on various boards asking what the maximum mounting angle is. Found 30 degrees was the max. Mine is about 20.
