    Thread: SL-C Monocoque project.

    1. 06-16-2010 06:25 PM #1
      I thought this would be a great thread for the car lounge as you don't see these cars worked on in forums very often. I'll be doing a ton of turbo related fabrication and upgrades to the 4.0L Toyota engine sitting in this SLC that has come to us from www.campbellrace.com (CDN) and www.race-car-replicas.com (USA)













      Heres a general look at what they consist of underneath.







      Engine area of this one in dicussion. w/ 4.0L installed and some of the soon to come out turbo hardware.



      I'll be adding the following to the engine bay.

      New dual intake plennum
      321 Stainless exhaust manifolds
      Tial BOV/WG's and Stainless Turbine housings.
      New IC piping
      Suspension for turbos and downpipes
      Recirculating downpipes.

      The manifolds I'll do will utilize the double slip fit collectors, much similar to the mani I did below



      Other examples in my signature below.

      I'll try to get designs and lots of detail in the posts.. you may remember me doing that a bit in the Dakar thread I made last year - here

      I went to some car show in Toronto and think I saw that car there, it wasn't the international show but some other one.

      Quite the machine, the guys wouldn't open up the engine compartment though I was disappointed but the spec sheet was impressive.

      I've always wanted to see some of the inside fab work done on these types of cars. From your previous threads I know the work will be more than impressive.

      Yes you probably saw it at the Motorsport show. The owner saw some of the stuff I do at JRP... and here we are.

      If you follow the first link, it goes into technical specs, but its a Toyota 1UZ V8.

      Wow! amazing car!

      Will it be put to use in any race series?

      p.s. the tail lights remind me of a '68 Charger.

      Thanks to all...

      I'm not sure where the owner will compete with the car, or if competing is in the agenda.

      I'll be starting with getting the top end of the engine torn down in the next couple days to start designs on the dual intake plennum. I'll need my new throttle body placement first.

      California Jay,

      What shop are you affiliated with? It's always great to be able to have highly skilled fabricators nearby. I want to add you to my list. That stuff looks amazing.
