Hmmm, cant delete a reply post? Or am I missing something?
Got the engine done finally. Some stout pieces of metal right there.
Driveside subframe connector thru the floor. The only way to FLY !
10sec, can you explain your choice on the motor so far? What's the cam being used for the turbo choice?
For wieght (road racing) wanted to keep it small. Thought about a big 351. Power would be easier. But with "only" wanting somewhere over 800, a 363 will definitely do the job. A stock hood is also much easier. And it's just a tiny engine bay with or without towers, so that played a role also.
Cam, went hyd from Cammotion. Have to check to see exactly, but a pretty small cam considering what's asked of it. Was 542 I think, 224 @.050. It's a split pattern with the exh side being a little less in lift and duration.
The end result should be fairly stupid. Intercooler should be the only sign of boost. The exhaust will be dead quite until the turbo starts cuttin some air.
Too much idle time with a hobby knife and some black epoxy glue. Takes two 302 and one 460 emblem...
Got the turbo the other day. Got the rims back from widening. The big turbo is next to a 61mm
who did your rim widening? are those a forged or cast alum rim?
Vaugh Machine did it in LA. Kinda pricey. Weldcraft was 20 a rim, this was 300. But This company doesn't do a band like weldcraft. Never heard of a band failing, but aluminum is so weak when it's welded, we figured with the HP safer to have only one bead. Not sure on the material, but if I had to guess, it's cast or billet. But I would lean towards billet. Where he machined, it doesn't look cast. I also looked at the weights, and one of the them ONLY has two small weights. Very little needed. Never seen anything only need that amount.
Nice clean work and not a lot of weights on the inside for that big a rim/tire:
Looks nice on there! Ride height not set yet though.
Some shots of the fender rolling.
Our attempt at a steam roller.
Some shots of the engine placement. Got her down and a good bit back. Got the two first legs made and tacked to the K-member.
wats with the censoring?
What censoring ?
mmk never mind one of the flash advertisements at the bottom was blacking out over one of the pics. goofy lol
Yeah, they're getting pretty damn annoying. You can't even close them
If you use Firefox you should install Add Block Plus to kill all those pesky flash ads.
Intake needed a little work before it went on.
Wheel housing patch
Yes, the turbo is hanging from the cherry picker.
Nicea nd low. No problems with the stock hood.
Sewer pipe is mocked up. Just trimming moving the rad a little more to get the warm and fuzzy on the distance to the fan.
