zach - wtf? that is all
this has been a long time coming because i was working and going to school full time for almost 2 years, but now im not doing either :P
we got a new steering rack, greased and plugged up. no p/s
removed hvac completely.
new stereo! 6x9 components up front behind dash and tweeter in pillar. 6.5 infinitys in rear, alpine type x ported 12 in the rear. yes, she gets down
had to repaint a section to fit in euro tails
painted this bbs rims gold. still want to get some nice 16s and put my mazda 6 brakes on
new 2g struts and springs up front
so with my harbor freight 100$ welder and tools, this is a brief summary of how the swap went. most of you are familiar with what this swap needs
cut part of stock block out to fit vulcan 3.0 tranny, needs clearance for the slave
custom y pipe
custom pass side axle mount
chop 1/2" out of front motor mount, cut out reinforcements on underside of hood. otherwise, it wont close
custom pass side top mount. had to cut some of unibody pass side out to fit pulleys in, rewelded some other steel for reinforcement. no in depth pics, but i do have one
the only thing saving my oil pan right now is the y pipe just barely dangling out in front of it, me thinks i need to make a skid plate??
stock radiator fits if you want it to, otherwise get a smaller one. the fans will need to go on other side
this is how shes gonna look for emissions. looks stock right? lol
i still dont know how im going to fit this blower (or a turbo?) in, but i have to do something towards the firewall side. i can do quite a bit of tucking on the lines and a little bit on the wiring......i might get crazy and cut some of the firewall back to put a fat boy turbo back in there? i kinda want to take this stock 3.0 block to the max to see how much power it can hold on e85. the blower i have can only make 3-400whp depending on boost/application. where as i could bolt up a gt35r and make 450-500whp?
