      The biggest hurdle to overcome is going to be trying to remove the actual A/C compressor. I am not sure how we are going to tackle it but we will figure it out soon here. It would be nice though if another company has already developed a setup for the A/C delete and if anyone knows please let us know otherwise we will engineer something ourselves.

      I don't wanna turn this into a FS thread, but do you guys have the plastic piece that slides up and down with the ebrake lever? Mine has cracked and I could use another one.

      I think we may still have that piece. Again I will look tomorrow.

One time I drove 40-50miles (drive time about 1hr) and the oil temp crept into the neighborhood of almost 240 degrees and the car was engulfed in smoke coming from the exhaust. It's only really good for short trips or driving at night. Thats why my fall upgrades round will include the new PTP turbo blanket that was released in March for the T3/T4 hybrid and the Vulcan Ultimate titanium-weave "lava fiber" header wrap on all the turbo plumbing and turbo exhaust manifold and vertical part of the test pipe. I would highly advise against anyone thinking of doing a ball bearing setup because you will have even worse heating issues than me. But then what do you expect more than doubling the power and not augmenting the cooling system? Oh well I hope you enjoyed my overly thorough and long-winded description! Privately message me for any additional information or pics. Inbox only, no IMs please.
      PM'ed about the oil issue.

      Get rid of the whole dash and get one of those Auto Meter Pro-Comp Pro dash and weld a bracket to the fire wall for it Sard also makes quite a few universal versions of these as well.

      Just finished spending the entire day with the plasma cutter and welder cutting out the stock seat supports/mounts and welding in some newer lower ones because my head with a helmet on was above the roll cage which is not good. BTW it was a ton of work and having to go back through and reinforce all of the sides again was a major pain.

      what are you going to do with the spare tire hole?? why not cut and put straight sheet metal there... more aerodynamic and lighter too!

      We will be cutting out the whole rear pan and welding in some new sheet metal so it is a more flat surface. We do not have too many updates this week as we had to build 3 engines for customers which allowed for no time for our own fun projects however we did modify the floor and get the seat mounted. It was a lot of work but the end result is great. I will post some pics in a few.

      I'm looking at that as well- also the dry sump setup is difficult unless we re-shuffle stuff. I'll probably run an electric water pump and re-sort the accessories.

      I'm kinda planning on putting the engine eventaully into a different platform and I would need hydraulic power steering I think, so whatever I figure out will need to be modular.

      I'm trying to get a FARO arm in the shop in the next month or two which would make it a hell of a lot simpler to put something together.

      Please keep me updated on your findings as I am very interested.
