the build is coming along nicely man, keep it up
is the color of your valve cover changing when you look at it at different angles or is it just dirty and p-shopped to something different like on the first pics?
the offsets are really similar to fouck's car. I am a little worried about slamming the car on them. It might not look right.
I went to put my ABS module in last night and stupid me put all the wires through the frame rail right where the module goes. I am going to try to slit the hole back a bit farther so I can push the wires below the module so everything is nice and hidden.
So the wiring is pretty much wrapped up, literally. I got the ABS module back in the car last night and the wires are all ran to their locations. The battery fuse box is now inside the cabin instead of the engine bay. I did run into one issue that was a bit odd. The black box on the frame rail(fan control module)? Had a plug on it which had a straggler wire that was cut and for the life of me I could not find the other end. I thought I was going to have to rip into the harness to try and find the other end. I found a wiring diagram online and saw that this particular wire goes from that plug to the after run coolant pump. Sure enough there is a red/black wire coming out of the coolant pump plug. At least I only need to unwrap that part of the harness to find the wire I am looking for.
this weekend I am going to:
- clean up all the wiring and make sure it is out of sight.
- make sure all holes I cut have proper gromets on them as to not rub through the wires.
- Install the rad support and start putting together the cooling system.
- Run my new fuel lines to the fuel rail.
- Install downpipe and plumb the turbo.
- Paint transmission black.
Does anyone happen to know the exact sizes for all the motor mount bolts?
Has anyone seen any creative ways to mount a battery cut off switch? I want to put my battery in my hatch area, but my local drag strip requires an external cutoff switch if we have the battery inside the car. I was thinking about putting it under the license plate and having a hinge on the plate I could flip up.

projekt oveRhaul - i hate my caR and i hate you too
check out the nhra link for the rules, and int here they list a cool way to run the battery switch if you have a steet car, i'm gonna set mine up the same way when i eventually move my battery to the rear.
