    Maybe I missed it, but what are you doing about the exhaust pipes? I think it'd be cool if you could run it back to the stock location, 2 tips rear exit. But then again, if this will be a drag car you could do the typical side exit?

    this can go one of the two ways ive pondered about it. I could make a complete 3” exhaust out the rear of the vehicle. It would run between the passenger side of the trans and frame. Or what i will 90% most likely be doing is just going with a sode exit out of the factory fuel fill doormon the passenger side. I actually was just thinking about this yesterday as i had the turbine housing mounted on the manifold. Turbo outlet to exhaust tip would probably put me somewhere around 18-24” exhaust length.

    Since last time theres been some mall but significant progress! I got the swing out door bars done and the last two bars to connect the four link brackets to the frame. I picked up some 1 1/4” schedule 10 exhaust pipe from Mr Peepers so i could start building my manifold. Id love to have one of their pieces on the car but the amount of money for a one off manifold is just way out of my budget at the moment. I figured out a way to mount my alternator as well! 7373C14C-D635-4D3E-9445-AE7F59016B3D.jpeg 4143529B-3C45-4BC2-A84E-CD60D77865E7.jpeg 66E087BE-7A74-4BC2-98F4-0812AB7B0293.jpeg B251E112-FD94-4217-8520-1D160D42C9C6.jpeg 81DD5A7D-3209-4093-9F40-A29221B06632.jpeg 69A33AF5-AA2A-4EBA-B1FF-4677DC362E06.jpeg 010C8B38-C7E2-405C-8FF2-C601047AEF8E.jpeg

    Manifold is all welded up. Still need to make some wastegate provisions, need some gates first. Got the four link braces done and started buttoning up the sheet metal!

    Finally got around to ordering some wastegates and finished the manifold! Also got some gauges. 6F06B6D6-1C62-4824-90F7-CFFBC38038A5.jpeg E15A7940-C289-48B4-A529-1B38E472CE37.jpeg 88F33C30-0A97-4463-83CD-CB2CDB303890.jpeg 9BF52AF2-5A6B-436E-9A7D-B4F3A2368BEF.jpeg 65B8844E-7A27-4CD8-86B2-0D5C9B3E5A48.jpeg

    Yes everything was done by me in my garage except my rear end housing, i sent that out to be shortened. Thank you. Self taught mostly. A lot of trial And error.

    Few thing done lately. Ive been digging into the wiring harness. I de-pinned a few things from the engine harness and the chassis harness. I ended up buying a hotrod fuse box for the chassis side to keep things simple. I modified the thermostat and upper radiator hose ports to face towards the intake side and fabbed up some cooling lines. I also modified my stock 2g intake manifold. I Mocked up the intercooler charge piping. Still have to weld that up and buy a bov and ecu. Also kind of tried a couple sets of wheels with the rear fenders. 509C21F3-A581-4ECC-AE11-043A80B95F14.jpeg 93873BD1-425B-4F37-AF42-5342787BC155.jpeg FCEBCA18-156C-4B03-B646-8F29911C5916.jpeg 3BFF8E7B-BFB1-49BD-AD3E-D74BF8AD2901.jpeg

    Any reason youre not welding an outlet onto the front of the head and the water pump outlet to shorten your cooling hose lines? It'd save space and prolly be more efficient in the long run, just an option.

    id looked into it a few times and turned away every time. I didnt really want to modify the block or head to redirect coolant flow like you have to do, id still have to run an inline thermostat housing. I really just wanted everything to function as close to stock as possible so i knew that it was going to work. Perhaps down the road ill change the setup to something like that but for now this is how its going to work! Not to mention those outlets sold cost money and im on a budget. I spent a total of like 15$ on this cooling setup and that was for the one radiator hose i cut four or five times to use as various couplers!

    So a bit of an update here. I did some body work to the front fender and got all four clear coated, ordered some rear wheels and tires, and Wired the car. As it sits right now im waiting for my map sensor to come in and i can adjust the fuel pressure and fire it up. Hopefully everything works as it should through the ecu. I incorporated an aftermarket fuse box for lights and such like that, this isnt finished yet.

    i still need to get front tires, Bleed the brakes and clutch and Make sure all the suspension is tight. I also need to have a driveshaft made then i should be able to get her out!! Were close!
