The regal's latest project

Well, I've been keeping busy this past week, taking full advantage of the spring like weather



Teaser..



Hey, I wonder why I needed better flowing + modified fuel rails??




Hey is that a new front mount radiator?
Is it a trans cooler?? hmmmm





Hey where do those hoses go?





Oh they're supposed to go there!

** don't have the latest updated pictures, but those were taken yesterday... got the shorty headers on, and the better crossover pipe today, that was a PITA... the blower is bolted back down, the hoses are routed, just need to be secured... intake has to go back on... and I have to reconnect everything I disconnected.... then its good to go, should be ~2 more hours of work tops...

Re: The regal's latest project

youre upping the boost or going with a bit of nitrous, thus you need better injectors and a better heat exchanger?

Re: The regal's latest project

updated pics, no bumper were taken about 30 minutes ago, with bumper about 10

Waiting on just a throttle body gasket (was leaking on me, car wanted to stall every time I bumped the gas, and idle was a bit crazy... scanned it, it was running lean, car was adding in 17% more fuel... sprayed around the engine with some throttle body cleaner, as soon as I hit the area around the TB it started pulling fuel from the trims, so that was my problem... at least its just 3 bolts, but I have to wait til 4 for the gasket to get in )

its clear tube for now, it's supposed to resist kinking, and its not 'everywhere's haha the only visible part is what goes to the core, with the bumper on that is..

it was either run it the way I did, or run it between the SC and accessory belt, that was way too close for my comfort, and the motor moves when you drive it....

I don't drive around with the hood open anyhow so it doesn't bug me

You like it because it reminds you of the water cooling on your computers.
