Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

The aren’t pointing down but I would have done it a little different. I’ll move them in phase 2 (forged build). For phase 1, them sticking straight out will be ok. The wrap is DEI titanium; you don’t need to get it wet to wrap it or spray it like their other wraps. I used it on my Forester with good...

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

Got the car back from the fabricator today after work, he did an awesome job. Some tight tolerances around the transmission housing and the rear axle, but he got it all to work. I didn’t get any pictures of the rear axle area tonight, I will tomorrow. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180623/324080...

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

It’s not helpless for me. It’s time spent working on something I don’t NEED to drive the car. I have other things that NEED to be done to drive it. Hence why I’m not focusing on getting those done (I had to wait for parts and find the levers).

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

Definitely be an interesting convoy to Bfest! :) I won’t have time to pick it up until Wednesday night. Lots to do between wh...

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

The FPR is an adjustable one from Casper’s that I’ve had since like 2001 lol.

The dump tube on this setup will be going down in front of the trans; on the next setup I will have the space to replumb it back into the downpipe.

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

Your Engine bay looks WAYYYYY emptier than my turbo! HAHA ...I was thinking just about the same thing... :wink: Very clean install thusfar, somehow your bay makes it look simple. Yep, I like the look of that intercooler... I can't tell where your waste-gate's dump-pipe is (or will be) going though....

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

Bought this bead roller from Eastwood, works pretty well. Gotta keep a hand on the pipe though to keep it rolling straight so your start bead and end bead line up (oops). https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180611/368b3f2aedb13729a1d91576282719b8.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180611/59c7ba4b...
