But thank you for this and pushing some of us to think outside the box and giving us some excellent ideas. Amazing work!!!
Looks like you have plenty of room in that engine bay for a massive turbo!

If you're so worried about the brake fluid overheating, why not wrap the proportioning valve too? You're wasting heat-wrap btw.

I have my spreadsheet at work so this is a guess. Maybe 18 mani/downpipe combos and 6 manifold only's since I got my Tig 6 years ago. Of those 18 combos, maybe 10 were vband stuff?

Well the turbo is back-ordered! So will be here soon I hope. The transmission is the 2nd generation turbo (TII) and clutch will be a fidanza 7 1/4" with tilton dual disc.

The car is a road race car though. You can see the adapter plate in the picture.

Hope I am not high-jacking the thread!!!

Long time, no update.

Still making progress, slowly but surely. Spring is here and I need to get this thing done!

Finished the wastegate dump tube:






Custom lower coolant reroute and blockoff plate:








Coolant distribution manifold:






New Rims!



And lets see if anyone can guess what this might be for...

Finished up the coolant lines:







Intercooler piping is done as well, just needs some polishing...





And started working on my cold air box. I have a bunch of 1mm titanium sheet that i scored at work, so I decided to use it for the airbox. This was my first time working with Ti and al I can say is "what a pain in the ***".

Not a flare fitting. Just a 3/8-16 threaded hole.
