    Thread: Project Big Blue

    1. 05-08-2012 09:57 PM #211
      Last of the intake parts in from the cross border pick up earlier today. Frozenboost.com had it all taken care of and shipped ASAP. for them.


      The breather block off plate on the front of the block is being drilled and tapped for the AN10 fitting at the machine shop.
      Going to try and combine that hose and the one off of the intake together. Got that idea from Urogolf's ride when I went down to see him. Love the cleanliness of the whole look.

      Tank is getting a new lining and should be back tomorrow.

      My man Deathare. recommended this tool for making clean cuts to the DP tubing, and will be using it for the boost piping as well.


      Rented it at Autozone in Buffalo and dragged it back across the border with me into Ontario.

      Had to come up with a fake phone number off the top for the rental, and some dudes name came up on the screen as soon as the Autozone employee hit enter.

      SoWo what?

      I had done that initially in -6 lines and have now bumped it up to -8 lines... Both go to a catch can

      I like that idea for the downpipe.. I used a sawzall.. Can be pretty violent!

      Absolutely love the direct notchy feel compared to cables and the guy who makes it is great to deal with on top of it all. It has a really short throw built into it too.

      Grasshopperdrag.de is his website. I think it was <$100 euro shipped.

      Deathare. is running the kit in his VR6 bunny and put me onto it. He loves it and is trying to convert everyone over. Last I heard, he was making door to doors with pamphlets detailing the whole get up.
      well no kidding, that's good info. certainly a lot better than retrofitting an 02A shift box.

      has great prices on tubing, and they have super tight bends available.

      I needed to keep the cuts as straight and clean as possible. Going to try and cut all the pieces needed and then mark them up for someone else to weld them together off of the car.

      Hoping it all works out as planned, because there isn't much room for error.

      Thanks ont he links. Really hoping to be able to get away with what I have had here sitting in a box for almost a year after an order I placed with Mandrel-bends.com.

      It's going to take some creative cuts and routing though.
