I've done a thing.
Pushed the motor back 2.5", tube the front end, adding a pedal box.

I know my welds suck, these are progress pictures done at the end of every night of work. most of my welds where grounded down and re-done.







the c3 was covered before sparks flew.





more ideas laid out.





finishing the foot box and supporting the upper bars.





yea the welds suck but you get the point. they where ground down and re welded also a gusset will be added.





lots of cutting got me here.





the new fire wall.





the motor goes in-out-in-out





it's a mess but nodes are nodes.





drum roll, the dry sump tank has a home. i'm planning on building the firewall out so i can't access the tank from the inside. this should give me time to get out if there is a fire.





atlas bar.





fire wall was tacked in, it was so humid out it began to rust.





we don't need no stinking fenders.

took a few days off to Work a PCA event, cleaned up the garage. and busted out the plasma. made enough room for 2.5" side pipes. they will be covered by the factory side skirts, until the melt. after that i'll figure out something else. maybe make something from bent aluminum.

Cool progress! I may be stopping by with questions every now and then, currently collecting LS1 parts!

Sort of trivial, did you keep the radiator with the lower tube on the driver side? How did you route that to the water pump?

I used a spec miata rad and just used a aluminum pipe as a cross over. I'll post pictures when I'm done.

i've Been getting down on myself as the dry sup pan has been a nightmare. i don't have the ability to weld aluminum, so I've been relying on others and favors. well after taking too two different shops Vengeance Road Racing pulled threw last night.







so it's going to have two scavenge lines. one front left, one rear right. with a baffle that directs the flow to the front or the rear.
We are doing what is called a Stage 1 dry sump. what that is we are using the internal pump for pressure and relying on a external scavenge pump to fill the dry sump tank.this is the same process used by the PWC camaros and the Trans am 3 camaro teams. so it's tried and true to work. you really shouldn't need any more than this unless your looking to run more than 6500rpm. Anything over that and the stock pump spins too fast and isn't very happy. over that rpm an external under-driven pump is recommended.

how do you fix the hose to the pump
if the pan is mounted
or you can rotate the pan with the hose fitted

The main line goes threw a soft line and a bulkhead. Those are swivle ends, and can move slighly. The bulkhead has a hole threw the pan and secures with a nut and a alumanum/rubber washer. The idea is that ill tighten all the important joints first. Then wheezle the bulkhead threw the hole in the pan and tightnen the nut. In my mind it will be easy :P.

So the forward facing mc where a bit too close. They pushed my knees up and into the wheel. So i fired up the credit card and bought the rear facing mc unit. Now my knees aren't in my chest.

sterted off with an idea of where i wanted to run it.

i just started cutting and tacking.

ran out of header piper really quick so i had to make a summit run, and get some more 1.75" tube.

end of sat, this is how it looked.

next day i was feeling a down on progress. so thought about going to a demo Derby.

but got back to work and kept cutting.

i think overall the header runners are a good 3' long.

up swept headers.mmmmmm i had to ditch my holley valve covers and go back to stock. i'll also need ASA plug wires to run around the headers.

finished up the Side pipes on both sides Monday night. it was a ton of work. good 3 day project.

This is likely a dumb question, but are the images of the pedals upside down?

Nope, they are mounted to the floor pan. That is why he has to make a false floor to protect the pistons.

Interesting, this is something I am completely stupid with, no shame. However to me it seems odd that the pivot point for the pedals is on the floor, vs them being above the pedals.
