the replacement:

Play time is over.

 

radiator positioning, ignore the ghetto mounts, i just wanted to see how it fit up.

IMG00111-20090923-2241.jpg

 

and lastly, a before and after of my engine bay to this point:

before...

IMG00069-20090917-2329.jpg

 

after...

IMG00134-20090926-0010.jpg

 

cut out the battery tray (all rust is just surface rust so it will all be grinded down when the bay gets painted.

IMG00135-20090926-0041.jpg

 

alright well manifolds are done (tackin wise) w/ collectors and vbands.

IMG00176-20091002-1550.jpg

 

and got my fuel fittings/fpr

IMG00178-20091002-1634.jpg

IMG00179-20091002-1659.jpg

 

 

Heres some pics of the manifolds in the car, I can remove either one with no trouble with the motor in :mrgreen:

IMG00183-20091002-2017.jpg

 

IMG00184-20091002-2018.jpg

 

IMG00185-20091002-2018.jpg

 

I ended up shortening the passengerside about a inch to clear the turbo better, but this is where the turbo is going to be sitting in the bay.

 

IMG00191-20091002-2304.jpg

 

IMG00192-20091002-2309.jpg

 

and the intercooler (which is going under the nose panal)

 

IMG00181-20091002-1840.jpg

 

Thats all for right now, should have the cross over done by the end of this weekend hopefully, then time to start on the intake manifold :flamedevi

car went a best of [email protected] on boost. Car is a th400 btw, never got a clean pass on the bottle. This setup i'm going for single digits on a bone stock long block, we'll see what happens lol. I'm just trying to get the setup done. After that, i'm going to be building a block/heads on the side while i mess around w the stock motor and when it pops or i get eveything together it will be getting a bigger single and i'llbe going for 8's but thats a long ways away.

I am going to redo the drive side vband and move it back a couple inches so it's not so close to the cold pipe.

Also got a new lip for the car and I have had these turn signalsfog light ducts sitting around forever so this will be the new front end when i go to get it painted

 

IMG00590-20091129-0145.jpg

 

The intake manifold has gone through a couple revisions But this is the final one,

IMG00557-20091121-1856.jpg

 

It's not finished yet, brining the valve covers/lower plenum to get cleaned monday. I cut the roof of the plenum off so thatI can weld the inside around the ports and smooth them out. Also drilled the lower plenum for the injectors, they are going to sit alot lower, just havnt cut the bungs yet.

IMG00615-20091203-0146.jpg

 

Thats all for now, was hoping to get alot done this week but I caught a cold and have been in bed/playing xbox for the last 2 days lol. But I should have the intake mani finished by the end of this week and the valve covers flattened as well. The goal to finish it by is the first week of jan so ima have a good xmas break working on it.

havn't updated this thread in a while but heres what i've been working on...

 

Got the fuel rails done,

IMG00841-20100108-2255.jpg

IMG00831-20100107-2239.jpg

 

Intake manifold some what together and also cut the tops off the valve covers:

IMG00880-20100118-2258.jpg

 

Also picked up my aem

IMG00859-20100113-1406.jpg

 

 

My origional plan was to run twin walbro intank pumps, but the more I think about it i'm leaning towards going with a single external. I have looked at aeromotive eliminators but have read that even witht he voltage controller they still run hot on street cars. I've seen a couple people run a magnafuel pump and i'm really leaning towards going that route. Anyone have any experience with these pumps?

Nice setup. Kinda similar to my equal length front mount turbo headers:mrgreen:

 

Those headers look awsome! nice setup. Do you have the turbo braced at all? Are they 16g?

 

ok forgive my ignorance, but this started out as a TT or Na?

 

The car started its life as a na 300zx, swapped in a tt motor in 2005 and the madness began :icon54:

Yes it braced on each side of the Y-pipe to the engine and I'm running solid mounts as well.

 

Can wait till you finish your awesome project.....your Z32 will be a beast.:mrgreen:
