What are the 2 rubber hoses coming out the bottom? Are both the vents? Or just 1? If only one is the vent, what is the other one?

Yup, coolant lines for the AOS. Keeps the AOS warm so the oil doesn't separate.

This all takes ~1:50 with 185hp. We had to do a custom sensor calibration like any fuel cell sending unit.
We used the same unit here on a couple of our cars. Works perfect.

Oh man that rad/IC ducting looks great. I did some basic ducting on mine, but I'm not sure I would want to lose the cross member on my road car in order to make it as good as that. I do wonder if it's possible to curve a sheet of aluminium under it though.

I'd certainly be interested in some of the splitter brackets that bolt up to the chassis rails, along with a few other parts from TSE if you post to the UK Savington?

I wish I'd seen those ducting pictures before I struggled through it without cutting the support. So much cleaner and easier than what I put together trying to form around that stuff. Definitely got to remember that for whenever I redo it.

On the ground for the last time. Really onto details at this point. Test day scheduled for October to do shakedown and setup.



Also had the car detailed. Not 100% perfect, but for a race car, it looks damn good. Before above, after below.



Dyno tomorrow for motor break-in and CA91 tune. It will come back in a few months for E85 and hi-power tunes.

Awesome work, as usual.

Still thinking of bringing it to display at [email protected]?

This one is just about done. Tony @ TC did a fresh Racetech 4119 and Schroth belts, as well as an ESS AFFF-AR fire system. New CCP hardtop and 1/8" lexan rear window installed, alignment and ride heights are set. The owner picked it up this evening and we're off to Thunderhill next week for initial shakedown and orientation.

Final(ish) engine bay with heat shield. I am going to have a few NA cold air boxes laser-cut since I need one for this car, Rover, and two future builds, but aside from that detail, this is the final product.



Final front end with mesh grilles.



So long.

I know you don't have the car anymore but at static ride height how far off the ground was the splitter?

Thanks

I just measured it on the rack, and itís 3.5Ē.
Itís low enough that I have to use Race Ramps extensions to get it in my tilt bed trailer that supposedly has a ~7 degree ramp angle.
Still easier than pulling off the front end.

(Iím the customer, and figured I would keep this thread up to date, if nobody minds. Like the Vegas build thread, but a less awesome car )

Sorry to keep bugging you about the fuel line/fitting setup but I'm still in the process of piecing mine together using this setup as a guideline...

I'm using a Hawley Performance Fuelab mounting bracket so space is a little tight with the FPR and IM. I know you're using Earl's Vapor Guard stuff but, as you well know, they don't really offer a tight radius 90* bend (see: 90* fitting off FF sensor) so I'm trying to mimic what you've got going on off the FPR here. I was going to just do a 90* -6 directly from the FPR to a E's VG 5/16" nipple like so:



But I'm curious as to the -6 AN adapter plug you've got in the FPR in the image above. Is it to space the 90* out from the unit or am I reading way too much into it?

It's not a 90deg male-male adapter. On the FPR side, the fitting is straight JIC male threads with a nut. Without the straight threads and nut, you can't clock the 90deg fitting, which makes installation impossible.

Something like AT949006ERL would work.

Clocking/orientation was my next concern, thanks so much!
