    Still re-doing stuff that didn't work.

    The -10 AN turbo drain line ended up getting sandwiched between the oil pan and the steering rack. More specifically, the fitting right off the scavenge pump...causing the scavenge pump to be pulled into an odd position on it's rubber mounts. The solution is to convert the scavenge pump inlet to a 1/2" barb fitting, and to clamp the line onto that. But...the line wouldn't reach....so I had to cut another 2+ foot section of -10 AN line. Now just waiting on the barb fitting to arrive...and I'll be done. One $120 oil drain line + fitting goes into the spare parts bin...

    I also found that pretty much all of the rubber vacuum lines in the car are starting to crumble...or are at least flaking to varying degrees. Rather than bolt stuff back together hoping it holds, I replaced it all. I've also added clamps or zip-ties to every line or plug that will see pressure from the intake manifold. (Including many OEM connections)

    On the up side, I have made some really good progress in other areas, but I need to take some pictures...

    Strut bar is done:

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    What are you looking at? It was a Racing Dynamics aluminum strut bar. Then we added mounting plates for the nitrous solenoids, meth valve, and FPR. Then this week I sections of 1/2" wide aluminum bar welded to the back, drilled a 1/4" hole through them, then cut them down. These will be the zip-tie points for slew of wiring and lines going between the left and right sides of the engine bay. Because of where they are placed, a person standing at the front of the engine bay won't easily see any of it.

    The final step was to prep all the aluminum surfaces for paint, prime 2 layers with self etching primer, then add 3 layers of low-gloss black paint. The finished result to me looks like OEM...hopefully it stays that way through assembly.

    Intake manifold with a few extra lines:

    Got the starter installed...what a PITA that turned out to be with the engine installed in the car:

    And the fun begins:

    Yes...I cut centre out of the radiator support brace. The oil cooler mounting point will be added into the middle, then the entire support brace will be removed for finish welding and trimming of the side-plates. Then it's off to paint...

    The transmission oil cooler + fan, and engine oil filter are proving to be much more difficult to fit. I've already cut a big notch out of the aluminum bumper bar, and the plastic bumper cover has had a fair amount of work done to it with a cut-off wheel.

    More next week...I'm spending the weekend with family.

    Nice update. I feel like you are re-doing the entire car at times. I don't even want to know how much time/money has been invested.

    Adam,
    this seems top notch.

    Is that cooler engine oil cooler or trans oil cooler?

    Nah...I've set limits on what I can touch. The next car will be much more radical...

    The one pictured above is the engine oil cooler.

    The Trans cooler will be mounted under the bumper.

    I've determined you just like to incorporate Nitrous into everything. Click here to enlarge

    Looks pretty awesome. When do you anticipate it being back together?

    Thanks.

    Yes, I like nitrous.

    I'm trying really hard to have the engine started within 2 weeks. After that, it's just a few things to get it officially on the road.

    Amazing update Adam, I might have to buy a new keyboard and thicker glasses if I keep staring at the screen and drooling hahah. Hopefully this summer I'll be making a trip out east, and as far as I'm concerned your shop is #1 to visit! I can't think of anything else over there right now haha!

    See post #46.

    Thks Adam, so its 8.5:1 ratio.

    actually i have read all 30 pgs of this excellent tread and pages 10/11 in 2011 had made me think that it was a different engine than the one in pg 29 (11mm raceware studs) coz it had 10mm raceware studs on.

    anyways, how does the vanos operate with the turbo as it was to be capable of swinging 50 crank deg or so under normal NA operation.

    cheers

    I can understand how that would be confusing, the build plan has changed a lot since post #46.

    The other thing is that this head has been decked twice, so CR will be marginally higher. Maybe someday I'll measure it....when I tear down this engine for it's next rebuild.

    Vanos has not be modified physically. It should have 40 degrees of range on the intake, and 25 degrees on the exhaust. Whatever Nick G has set for the OEM cams is what I'm running for the tune; I'm not too worried about it.
