This build was completed in July of 2009 by Bishnu. May he sleep in peace.
Well, I been busy and didn’t have time to drop this motor back in the car until. I have been working on it for the past month or so. Most of the work was done solo but I did need some help on a few things and some friends helped out, like mating the tranny and motor. (shout out to Mike, lol)
Painted pipes before wrapping
NWP TQ Link
Did the whole front end in ES bushings…..pain in the ***
Half size radiator installed
Best FMU location ever
Closer look, open dump
Filter installed. I will endup running this filter into the fender and putting the maf before the turbo inlet because the way I fabbed up the charge pipes there is no room for the MAF on the charged side because of taking up some space for three 1/8npt taps……
BC for this year
Meth kit behind the bumper, going to run a dual nozzle setup. I will also tune for meth and need to be 100% positive it is spraying. That LED light just doesn’t cut it for me so I bought a cheap electric fuel pressure gauge that I will use to monitor my meth pressure……
FMIC, not too visible behind the 5.5gen bumper but should get lots of air.
You can see the charge pipe from the turbo to the intercooler here, very short!!!
After completed I will have very short charge pipes.
So, thats where I am at presently. All I need are a few couplings that are on order and I need to weld the downpipe in one spot because I had to cut it.
I also need to do some things like a 3in catback, fab up some support brackets for the turbo, wrap the rest of pipes, etc, etc
Here’s a lil rendering of the pipes once finished.
