Default Re: My little turbo project...

Here's better and updated pics...

Parachute air cylinder


The parachute is a custom peice that's real thick so the cylinder tab was just welded right to it... Also a handle stop was welded in so the cylinder doesn't send the handle through the windshield... Or in the event of a failure if I were to slam on the handle I don't send my hand through the windshield either...



The fiberglass dash mounted and held in by dzus fasteners...


The top side of the dash where the pillar bars come down had plates welded around the bar so if I wanted to fill in the dash area and paint it I have some backing...


Here's better pictures of the dual parachute mount completely finished...


And the wheelie bars completed and mounted to the car...



Next on the list is to get the cowl cut out and make it a removeable one peice or I might just have it smoothed over... Also to get the engine bay ready to go under the knife...

I gotta clean up the areas I cut out and do some more work on the engine bay....

Time to fire this project back up and get it moving...


Was bored one day so I quickly went over the engine bay and sanded down a few areas to fill in...



Nothing too crazy... Just figured I do something and kill some time...



So then I tried putting the Danny Bee belt drive cover on... For some reason my 4 lower mounting holes were 3/8's and the rest were 7/16's... Why? Don't have a clue...

So we had to drill out the 4 lower holes... (Thanks Pb)... Time to fire up the bridge port...



Then attached the cover to the block and layed it in the engine bay... And put the limiters back on...



Tomorrow night is to drill the intake out and weld in the injector bungs... Stay tuned... :help:

Lookin very nice, use the bridgeport to mill the injector bungs so they are a precision fit and angle. makes welding them a piece of cake

Exactly what we're going to do... He's done a few intake manifolds... So I have 110% faith in him...

More progress...

First and foremost thanks to P.B. for everything he's helping me with...


Last night took the intake and hooked it up to the bridgeport...



Now finding the center of each intake runner...


While finding the center of each intake runner measurements where also taken so it would be easier to find the dead center for drilling out the injector bungs...

All done...


Now to take a final bore head to make it the exact size we need...


Injector bungs fit like a glove...


Injector bungs will be machined for the proper angle
