Now it sits like it should.

 

and just loosly fitted the intake piping to have a look at it.

there is so many tight spots along the Way, due to the turbos beeing so large, that i can see that i need to redo alot of the brackets for AC Lines, wiring etc.

 

but seeing some piping on gives me a boost of much needed inspiration to go on with it....

Oil and water done. Except for the Oil return, which i cant do before the boost pipes are fitted.

 

and fitted the engine Mount spacers to raise the engine 6mm to make clearence for the piping.

 

so just started putting on some pipework. Carefully making sure that nothing rubs or hits anything.

Some more boost pipe fitting.

and also alot of small brackets and water pipes. 

This is a slow ass build, i know. But it's fun trying to come up with your own solutions.

and everything is getting unnesesery attention, but worth it when it's done.

 

i'we also done some horrible "welding", dooing aluminium with my mig welder.. with aluminium wire and argon. not the Best work, but it's possible, and this weld will be ground down and painted, so no harm done.

 

dooing my engine breathing Lines in AN10 with all Black Lines and fittings.

Had a few hours today to spend in the garage.

so started taking apart the washer assembly for the parts i need.

 

I need to do new hoses and a new tank or two aswell as filler pipe and wireing, as nothing will sit in place due to boost pipes coolers etc.

 

for some this might not be needed, but beeing a streetcar i want to keep the window and headlight washers.

 

also the powersteering reservoire will have to be moved, and i had to redo the inlet in the powersteering pump as the boost pipe is in the Way.

Test fitting the last few pieces of boost pipe.....

had some serious space issues with the lhs boost pipe.

but it's in now... and all scratched up, so I'll have to throw it in the pile that needs repainting.

 

but i'm pretty happy so far...

One side on.

i Think I'll have to remove it again as i thought i could fit the lambda probe when the down pipe was fitted.... but it looks like a redo....

 

i'm closing in on the exhaust...

i don't know what to do yet. But i'm thinking a 3"- 4" Y pipe and a single 4" mid pipe to a 2x3" rear piece and Dual back boxes.

I Think i Got the top lambda probe fitted to the lhs downpipe.

And then i fitted the probe to the right side prior to fitting it! There is NO room what so ever with theese HUGE pipes...

 

And with that, it's almost the last thing on the todo list before moving on to ecu, AFR gauge and fuelpump... slowly running out of parts to put on. getting there
