More HUGE progress today.

I fought with the oil relocation for a bit and finally got that done. So now the hot side is on.. I still gotta clock the turbo where I want it but I've got everything else on and good to go... Click image for larger version

I'll get the cold side ran, and get the BOV and wastegate assembled and put on. Then it's a matter of clocking the turbo, triple check bolts and nuts to be tight, make sure nothing is close to the hotside that will melt.

Coming along quicker then expected.

The on3 piping and stuff really fits well and quality is better then I expected

I may have to take a ride to your part of the Country to see this thing in person. Plus, I may need to buy the TR3650 trans from you if you have converted the car and still have manual gear box.

You are reaching that engine's potential to be faster very quickly.

I know haha once I get the boost up to 16-20psi and get rid of any bugs, I'll go auto but I'm in no rush especially since I dropped 900$ on a clutch lol

That's a pricey clutch. I would want to get the life out of it for that price.

The intercooler was not fun to mount simply because my core support was all wadded up from the original owner.

But I straightened it out and got it to fit great afterwards

All that's left now is to plumb everything. Run the drain & feed lines, all the vacuum lines, install the wideband, clutch (which will be last).

I am going to have to go ahead and delete the power steering/hydroboost.

The way I have everything mounted I just don't have room to get the pump back in there. Which doesn't bother me a bit. I've been debating it anyway just haven't done it because of the cost to switch to the manual set up.

But it's definitely coming along!!
I've really only got about 14 hours messing with it. And for not having any instructions or routing diagrams I have to see it's going pretty good!

More pics come soon!!

Wanted to give a small update.

I've had ALOT going on with work and just life..

Still have to order my flaming river manual rack, going with an strange manual brake master cylinder kit. That alone is gonna be about 800-900$

I ordered my vacuum log/manifold from UPR for 45$ shipped. So once that gets here I can get the vacuum lines plumbed.

Also, with my car being salvaged title it had some front end damage like I showed before, I'm thinking then "core support" sits in closer to the engine then normal so my stock cooling fan doesn't fit. I sold it for 80$ and that gives me an excuse to upgrade to the Mishimoto electric fan with the shiny little metal shroud.

So just have a few little parts to order and I should be well on the way.. I know it's a process but I am happy because I can go out and see that the kit is on and not much needs to get done.

Here's some pics it almost looks drift car ready since the old rack is out so I can crank the wheels way crazy lol

I've got time this weekend to mess with it since it's not my weekend to have my daughter so hopefully I can make a little progress.

Really just wanna get my vacuum lines someone organized and ran, and get some wires and stuff tied away and loomed.

Stay tuned everyone!!

Looking good Logan!! Im still tuned in man. I wish I had my mustang still. I'm thinking of buying an old fox and dropping ****gasp****a 496 Chevy motor in it. Forge the motor and put aluminum heads on it and a cam. See what that makes. That'll be down the road when I get my second house with a shop.

Now that I have this I can finally get my vacuum lines ran.

So what's left is small in my eyes.

1. Get the vac lines done.
2. Get the new cooling fan installed.
3. Double and triple check clamps and make sure everything is away from the piping.

After that it will be ready to run.

Still need to figure out how I'm going to do the manual brakes and steering change.

Need to order some parts for that so it will be a little longer before it drives but it will run in the garage lol

I haven't checked this thread in a while. Glad I decided to look again. Many similarities in interior choices, so I'm sure I'll bug you from time to time.

This car is glorious. I probably would've gone SN95 had I not seen it a while back.

I need to win some money on a lottery ticket.


I haven't really spent a night in the shop in weeks, just an hour or 2 here and there.

The damn car has cobwebs...

Have no concern that it won't get done. Just gotta buy the brake and steering parts, some small things and it'll be time to roll..

But I was thinking it's probably not a terrible thing it's sat this summer.. that allowed me not to break anything and not rush the install.. I've had time to triple check things, and do it the clean OCD way I like to do things.

Plus if I finish it before snow it'll be good boost weather lol

So have no fear everyone, I haven't disappeared..

I just signed on my first home so I've got that going on along with life in general.
