Now that I think of it...I specifically asked for the shiny silver and neo chrome qr from Touge factory and ordered it over the phone to ensure that. They sent the non shiny silver and neo one instead. Not the hugest deal but a waste of time and effort to get something I like for only half of the like...and none the less effort, hah.

^ the filter I picked up from autozone. It's cheap...and it probly sucks..but it'll work till I order a nice little K&N. Going to breath from the oil filler neck and the back passenger side Iron. 2 an-6's should be enough to prevent that god aweful choo choo chain smoke puffs I used to get all the time
Bj put 2 mounting tabs on it and then found a nice little spot for it on the drivers side wheel well.

I think I might make 2 sheet metal covers for the wheel wells just to keep the dirty out of the bay.

Also started making ducting for the Intercooler. Used cardboard... worked like a charm.


decided to cut the bumper support.. it just screwed everything up and was all in the way.. so it had to go. I'll make something else to mount the front bumper... or maybe i'll go quick release.




Also got the Turbo Manifold Supports cut and mocked up. This will take all the load off the tubing and prevent cracking from the weight of the turbo.

So I was finally able to get over to the shop yesterday morning to get some stuff done. But firstly I wanted to clear some things up. Some people have mis-interpreted what i said about Bj's shop in a post earlier. I paid in full for the turbo manifold, IC and RAD set up. I in no way got them for free.

anyways.. onto the Updates!!:
Steering set up


side view

corsica 330 =-) love this wheel


Bj did an excellent job on the Catch can.. don't know where i'd be without this guy. Made it from scratch

nice little drain, it'll have 2 AN-6 lines vented from the oil filler neck and the passenger side rear iron to breath from. Help prevent those crappy choo choo train puffs on decel and in-between shifts.

autozone filter

final restinc location on drivers side wheel well


also got the EGT bungs welded on the turbo manifold..


More updates soon!

I'm surprised the fabricator has gotten so far on your car. BJ usually quits halfway through. Great work, just have to wait 1+ years for him to finish. Looks good though.

Little Update:

So I started more ducting work. You know I realize that I shouldnt make the ducting work too customized...if that makes any sense. For instance what if I decide to run a different front bumper? I don't want to have to re work my ducting in order to change bumpers etc. With that said.. I decided to make the ducting in 2 sections. The first section part of my IC/rad set up, and the second section part of my bumper/Aero. But anyways...onto Pics:

first off..got these bad ass gloves...



Duct work on lower radiator



an finally 95% done. Don't have very sturdy bumper mounts yet so everything looks tweaked as the IC wasn't in there straight but Everything will be nice level and symetrical:icon_tup: I also need to pull the lower duct up about 3 inches as it's a little too close to the ground for my liking. But this is what the duct set up will look like for the most part. All that's left is a back side shroud for the IC...possibly Radiator if there is room. The areas to the left and right have been left for brake ducts and a CAI for my Urbo :nod:



I also had to order another jet kit from AEM for my Water Methanol Injection kit. I accidently sold my elbow with the jet in it to a member here about a year and a half ago:blush:..score for him(gean) shit for me haha because it was 60 damn dollars for something I could've machined. but it did come with a nice new filter so I guess it's worth it. Anyways... I'm slightly limited to where I could put the bung just because the charge piping is so short. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing but it took some thinking. Then it popped into my head.. my TB had a nice little vac port on it. So I pulled it off and tapped it for my bung.

Mindblown at the attention to detail during this. Everything is just super dialed. My favorite things so far are that water neck and turbo manifold. Nice to see you running aux injection as well.

hey thanks!

The water neck was just kind of a spur of the moment thing.. we made it kind of quick but it came out good Aux inj is a "NEED!" for reliability! I'm all about it for rotaries!!

Little Update:
Got the Down Pipe done....jk jk jk

I'm not going to run it like this...for now I wont. I'm going to dump it right under the car midway past the drive shaft. It would really just be so damn loud I wouldn't even be able to start it in the garage without it resonating the whole house. Anyone ever heard a 13b un-corked? sooooooo loud. My exhaust won't be much quieter but i'll eventually get the exhaust figured out.

Anyways.. I worked on the Throttle body fulcrum some.. and decided to just cut off the plate, drill and press out the insert and use the OEM fulcrum. This saved me a baunch-load of money...and seriously only took about 5 min. I'll clean it up a little but It lines up nice and will work just fine =-)
cut the bottom section off and cleaned it up

and done

Also got the down pipe tacked up with the mid pipe v-band as well. Mid pipe is straight through..no resonator

drilled some holes for my O2 Bungholios




going back into the shop today to get some more work done... hopefully we can get her wrapped up so I can get the car back to my garage and start pulling the carpet, and get some paint and wiring done. Yay fun stuff....NOT haha. Looking forward to my first start!

But yesterday we got the down pipe mocked up and tacked, v-bands attatched, TB fulcrum complete, O2 bungs tacked, throttle cable routed...and.. I think thats all I got done.

ALSO big one.. I need to know where would be a safe place to tap my front cover for my Oil Catch Can.. I have one from the oil filler neck but i need another one on the passenger side of the motor.. Any suggestions or past experience?

Well long story short... decided to bring the car home to get some extra work done on it since all thats really left to fabricate is the bash bar and blending on the turbo flange manifold to turbo side. Other than that.... a bash bar is in the works...but won't take much time at all. So me and johnny got his trailer and picked up the car from the shop and parked her back into my garage.

So I got a little work done on her inthe past couple days...but not as much as i'd like.
Anyways..

I got the Radiator Drain bung welded in the radiator

then put the actual drain in there. I spent the extra 3 bucks to get a name brand one from summit racing.. just don't want any crappy leaks haha.

THen I drilled out the 8 holes I had already had for my Rad/IC mounts and ground down some Nuts so we could weld them into the frame of the car. This didn't take but about 35 min... a good drill and a belt sander worked flawlessly here =-)

I think I might have forgotten to take pics of them welded in....but once they were I ground them down just a tad so they sat flush with the frame.

And to add to my pile of parts... these came in =-)
S13 PBM's with built in spacers!! up next their modded angle knuckles!

my car sitting at home after all these months!!

Then I started working on blending the turbo manifold. The welds on the inside needed a lot of smoothing out.... so I got to work accordingly.
Before

during

After


porting table madness

I really took my time on these..and I think it showed. Came out well... or at least i'm happy with it haha.And thats just about where I left off...
well I ordered some -10oil line for one of my coolers because the line wasn't long enough in it's newer location to fit.
Also, gave up on trying to fit the OEM fans onto my 23x12" Radiator... I must've spent 3 hours carefully trimming them until I realized that it just wasn't going to work. They're just too wide depth wise.. they after trimming they were still just too bulky...they were crushing my radiator lines... so I said screw it i'll order slim fans
