So spent another 2 days and got nearly nothing done.

Got a base tune on my pcm ready so hopefully it will run.

This is what will be a radiator surround.
Resized Image

Mounted my oilcooler but was short by 18inches on lines so ordering some more.
Resized Image

Found an air filter that fit. Hoping it isnt to bad of a restriction.
Resized Image

Found out I need another 8inches of 3 in aluminum to finish my charge pipe.
Resized Image

And started on my rear coilover swap. Cut off the mount and new ones are almost done.
Resized Image

Havent heard back from summerbrothers yet about my stub axles, havent heard from Mcleod on my flywheel, I was charged for my DS and Halfshafts but they cant go in until my other parts get back so I am at a standstill until parts start arriving.

Where to start. Happiness and sorrow.
Flywheel came in. Fit the crank and floater but not the pressure plate. Sent it back to be inspected by McLeod. Hope to have it back soon. THis held up the trans and driveshaft install. Still no stub axles so no halfshafts which is holding up final measurement for rear top coil mount location.

Now onto the good.

Dennys Driveshaft and Halfshafts came in. Nitrous ready. Solid 1350 spicer ujoints.
Resized Image
Resized Image

Wilwood 6pot front came in.
Resized Image
Resized Image

Went from this.
Resized Image

to this.
Resized Image

After test fit for shims I started the final install. Found out I hated doing safety wire.
Resized Image

But got the hang of it at the end.
Resized Image

And installed. Also finished installing the passenger side plastics in the wheel well. Meth tank and pump tuck in very nicely behind it all. Center piece took minor trimming to fit over coilover mount.
Resized Image
Resized Image
Resized Image

Also got my C beam back from coating.
Resized Image

And 4 more boxes.
Resized Image

Forgestar F14. 18x10 front deep concave. 18x11 rear super deep concave.
Resized Image
Resized Image

Black lugs and valve stem.
Resized Image

Testing fitment with charge pipe.
Resized Image

Tires are ordered. 285 Hankook fronts and 305 R888 rears.

Worse case scenario I keep the 31 spline spindle and have MW do a set of stubs.

My stubs have no reluctor wheel type setup. Just spline and ujoint mount. May make it easier to weld. Will see. They get a call Thursday if I still havent heard anything.

If it were me, I'd want the biggest spline outer stub shafts I could put under it.... despite my well known success with stock parts, LOL... It's scary as hell when they let go.

Same. Unless someone knows a bigger spindle that will bolt up the stock can only go out to 31 spline. Or at least so I am told.

Would much rather go 33 but it is what it is.

Little more progress. Had around 6 hrs to figure some crap out and get stuff installed.

Got the clutch in finally. Trans, cbeam, and driveshaft are in but didnt grab any pics. Will next go around.
Resized Image

Then my tires were in so I took them by a trusted friend to get them mounted and balanced. They look perfect.
Resized Image

305 is a great size but I am already looking for the bigger 315/335 for the drag setup.
Resized Image

Test fit the front 285 and will have over .625 in between the tire and charge pipe so I can proceed with my plan.
Resized Image

Catch can came in so I figured out mounting with the radiator/fan setup. Also figured out coil locations since my new filter setup made my last plan a no go.

Yessir. I have mine all lined out. I live in Texas so no emmisions. You can see my 6an bung that will go to the air filter side. The passenger side has a 10AN bung to the can and the pcv back to the TB.

As for filter there are 3 choices:
1. Shorty filter.
2. Like show for a larger filter.
3. Remote mount the battery to the rear and run the ducting to the battery area.

3 seems to be the best option but I recall someone doing this and not having much different IATs. With my current setup it will breath more fresh air with the SS scoop in the new hood.

Short weekend but got all we could get done, done.
Biggest thing was finishing gutting the old useless wiring. Will see what I screwed up soon enough. Removed 15lbs of wires and relays and the stock cpu/alarm/theft crap that never worked.

All charge piping is mocked and BOV flange fitted to pipe and off to coating.

New harness is ready to go in next trip.

Coil mounts are made and off to powdercoat. This was the best option given the space constraints.
Resized Image

Got pictures of the driveshaft/t56adapter/cbeam/12bolt setup. My battery on my cell was nearly dead so no flash.

Resized Image
Resized Image

Also a pic of my oilcooler mount location.

Resized Image

And my new radiator shroud also off to coating.
Resized Image


Even better is my spindles and stub axes are shipped on monday.

Next go round is finish the wiring for the pcm and meth tank, flush all the fuel lines, get the car back on the tires and maybe see if it cranks/starts.

My old man called me today and said the welder stopped by and my coilovers are done, radiator is in, and wiring is nearly done. 1 more weekend and I should have it make a test fireup or extremely close.

So a lot has been finished with very little pictures.
Wiring is done besides some custom switches. Hobbs switch is wired up and my fuel pump is pretty loud. Moving some serious fuel.

The car cranks, has fuel, and spark. I can keep it running by spraying fuel in the intake. This tells me things are working well and I just need a better tune since the car WILL run once in closed loop. Initial start up in open loop is just to lean.

Gauges are in. All work except the fuel sensor but I think my lever got bent on install.
Resized Image

Resized Image

Then I got the tires out after putting on the rear bumper and wheel wells.

Resized Image

Resized Image

And the car stood on its own for the first time in 20 months

Car runs pretty damn good.
Got the car exhaust hacked up as I still had cats and my mufflers shot.

Vid: Car made 700rwhp/600rwtq spinning to 6500rpm. Made around 17lbs of boost.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2XTdgEUUEw

It is a very fun car and the rpm wraps out very quickly in 1st-3rd.
Plans are already in the works for more power...

Made it to the Texas Mile where I learned I cannot shift worth a crap from 3rd to 4th. Pulling straight back was making the car go to 2nd so I was having a big delay in that shift as I had to pull to the right but not so far as to go into 6th.

First run: 97mph @1/4, 14Xmph@1/2, 151mph@mile. This was a proving run that needed to be between 140-165. Did not shift out of 4th.

Second run: 105mph@1/4, 144mph@1/2, 188.9mph@mile.
FWIW most cars hitting 14X in the half were doing 160's. My tuner thinks at the current power I could do mid-high 190s.

At the end of the run I had an issue. The cause could be a c clip holding a spindle in busting, brakes dragging, or the fact that my fuel pump died and killed the engine. All that I know is it was a wild ride and I can't wait until next year.

revamped the setup. New intake, new pcm, flex fuel, new fuel pump and lines, and higher redline. Should be tuned here soon.

As I like to say, Photobucket killed the internet. I still haven't found a comparable photo hosting site and I've tried a few. I'm willing to pay a reasonable fee, just can't find the right one.
