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...

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

I have a decent idea with the piping - did a rough mockup last weekend. Waiting on couplers to finalize it though. The cold side feed to the intercooler is going to feed through the triangular support bracket behind where the washer fluid tank used to be (I removed it years ago during my first attem...

Installed the Neon rear disk setup but realized I didn’t have the lever the parking brake cable attaches t...

Re: Clunking around passenger side when making right turn

Sounds like the control arm bushings have failed. Check those as they were known to pop out of the control arm.
