    Thanks! I do abit of CAD sketchs for a couple firms occasionally so I get a bit of practice. Noticed I forgot to toss up a picture of the catch can mod a couple posts ago. Doesn't look to great but does the job.

    Ya was thinking of swapping out the bolt, measured it out and its an M8 x 1.25. Assuming it has a bit of lock tight on it. heres a rough idea of the height differences in the gasket.

    Thanks, thats good to know, I'll need to verify the part number for the thermostat I used. Hopefully that's what the problem is.

    I'll be sure to take you up on that offer, any specific file type it should be converted too?

    is your printer able to handle ABS material? I would be interested in seeing how an ABS performs in the field. Been jumping between the idea of getting a 3d printer just havent found the one yet.

    I figured this was the weekend I'd start up the Z but had a bit of a hiccup when filling my fluids. The issue right now is the water neck outlet is leaking where it mates to the waterpump? When I took the water neck outlet off of the engine there wasn't any gaskets so I didn't add any when I put it back together the first time. I filled it up with rad fluid and saw nothing dripping, so I bolted the manifold back up. I went for a quick bite to eat and when I got back I noticed there was a slow drip so I drained the system and unbolted everything, I took the water neck outlet off and put some gasket marker on it thinking it would fix the issue. It cured overnight and I filled everything back up once again...no leaks. I then bolted the manifold on and noticed another slow leak after about a half hour. Having almost no patience left I jacked the car up and the only thing I'm seeing that might be an issue is the manifold touching a bolt. Does anything think when the manifold is tightened its pushing against the bolt causing the water neck outlet to not sit flush with the mating surface? Not sure if this might cause an issue but I also switched the stock thermostat for a mishimoto thermostat. The mishimoto thermostat seems to sit low inside of the aluminum housing, will post a rough sketch to better explain myself.

    great job on the hand brake. Did you end up out sourcing the 3d printing? What type of plastic was used? I'll be honest I'm a bit jealous of the no snow on the ground...

    I typically only have time to work on the car after work on weekends so progress is extremely slow. I managed to weld in some -10an bungs onto the valve covers, modified the catch can and switched out the stock oil level sender for an aem oil pressure sensor. For anyone looking to do that the thread is 1/8" bspt, and the aem sensor comes as a 1/8" npt. A part number for an adapter is "EAR-968698ERL" and thats off of summit racing. Managed to finish my headlights, extremely happy with how they came out, I'll be able to see at night!

    thanks for confirming.

    @seattlejester just tried a 1/8"NPT, it started to strip the thread, will take a picture and post it. Called a BW dealer to see what the thread pitch is just waiting on a call back. I put a 1/8" npt fitting incase I needed to widen the hole. I ended up putting a 1" dia. tube inside the catch can to help draw air from the inside, also put course stainless steel wool inside. The plug at the bottom will be replaced with a hose so I can drain it easily from under the car. Thanks @Greeko I'm still a rookie though, I see it as worst case scenario I have scrap aluminum and wasted some cash. The best thing is I practice tig welding.

    appreciate all the info guys, ended up just getting an air filter this weekend and tossed something together to get it on. Also finished my intercooler piping and catch can. Can't wait to get this on the road. Been reading up trying to find out what size fitting going on the front on the turbo, had read it was 1/8"npt, some say M10x1.0, anyone happen to know?
  12. Exposed's 1jz Build

    some great info above, thanks Geno I haven't seen anything like that before. It's definitely something worth looking into.
  13. Exposed's 1jz Build

    Thanks for the info guys. Saw a couple of the pictures above but was planning on running a turbo guard filter. I might just drill the existing hole in the turbo housing and use that for the catch can, waste gate and boost controller. Will read up on it a bit more.
  14. Exposed's 1jz Build

    silly question but would either of these work? I've normally see it run to where the air filter would go but I was thinking of running a turbo-guard filter.
  15. Exposed's 1jz Build

    @seattlejester I was thinking about leaving it like that but I think I'm going to do a custom oil catch can and just run some -8an lines. Was thinking of fabbing up a catch can in the space between the battery and the passenger strut tower. I'll put that filter on the catch after. Already made my cardboard template. Whats your opinion on leaving just the filter? @Greeko lol 10 months of winter, sadly its true. and yes the TTT strut does clear the engine.
