After throwing the engine together: AC Compressor, Alternator, Injectors, Oil sandwich plate, Engine Mounts, Oil Pan and other itemsÖ Iíve decided Iíll be converting my Coolant feed lines to AN as well. I picked up a 1/8th NPT to -6AN and then ran the -6 line to the neck coming off the pump.
The next task was to route my new inlet pipe properly. No half assed stuff going on here. Coming off my turbo is a 4 inch inlet so I ran a couple of elbows and then a reducer to bring the setup down to 3 inch. Then Iím routing it through the opening in the front of the fender well.
This is the hole Iíll need to cut.
So I armed my girl with an air sawÖ. Secret is out of the bag guys, she does all my fabrication work!
So after I took the air saw back from her, I cut the hole, and then I lined it with RTV and rubber tubing.
The fitment came out quite nice. Perfect actually.
Next step was to continue modifying my Catch can. As stated before Iíll be running two -8 AN lines into my catch can and Iíll be mounting a traditional breather out the top of it.
I didnít get very good pictures of the brake line re-route yesterday so here you areÖ I have the bias block thing mounted behind the cowl now, along with the clutch and brake lines. You can see in the pic above- it really cleans things up on the fire wall.
They go in here:
Come out here:
Oh yeah, I mocked up my vacuum distribution block too.. Pretty lil sum bish huh?
The engine is about ready to drop in - I'll likely have it put bolted in tonight.
