WOW....that is just art right there!
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
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
It is a kit car.... So yes this one is street legal too.
that manifold looks like art, you did that? nice work
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.
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.

Today was tear down day... to an extent. I had another Audi manifold to finish b4 getting on this today. I'll get into some CAD tomorrow for flanging and plennum design. I'm at a bit of a cross road as to utilize the lower plennum runners in part of the intake manifold design... Putting the runners into CAD will be raising the budget considerably, I'll get upper and lower flanges at least into Solidworks just incase. Starting fresh from the head can certainly up the flow.
The machining on the A-arms and hub carriers is really nice.
Old stuff out below.. I'll be keeping the turbos but swapping the turbine housings to V-band. Also switching to external gates.
I may utilize the lower plennum runners you still see here. I'll sleep on it and juggle designs around first.
Nice close-up of the mani I finished last fri.

The car has never been driven and this engine is stock as it sits.. the combo has never fired. I'll suspect 450 hp to start until the engine is upgraded. After rods and pistons are done, I can easily it doing 650hp on these turbos on pump gas. I'm hoping if the budget permits I can wire it up and fire it too. Its running on Haltec.
So after staring at the intake setup and considering clearances, and budget etc etc.. I decided to keep the lower plennum. The angle the rear of the body clears the engine only leaves for a plennum height of 4". With that in mind, the angle of entry for the IC pipes and TB's would have been too sharp to have the entry at the back of the engine. So I kept it off to the side.
I'll be running this section of the plennum on the Dimension Printer to make sure my bolt pattern and ports are correct.
In the plennum model I put in a nice radius to the lower intake ports. I'll try to get it on flow works, but with out the programm for the lower plennum it may be useless. Still should all work much better than the stock piece. this is all pendng if the machining of the pieces comes within budget. ~$2k
If you guys want I'll show the process of the dimension printer after the sample comes out.
