Been there done that 4yrs ago:
And your finished "fully built" engine should look like this:
And your finished car should look like this:
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!
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.
you wouldnt be using the stock steering wheel.. are you?
and, why sparco? just want to know the reasons of why this over the competition...
All of our road course race cars since I was a kid have run Sparco seats and harnesses so I guess its just a personal preference thing and also the PRO ADV fits me perfect. I have bought 4 of them now for 3 different cars and I love them.
And our Turbo R32 runs one of these
ok, thats what i wanted to know...
whenever i do the seats and the whole interior upgrade, i plan on doing it with Sparco stuff... seats, steering wheel, seat belts, rails, etc... they are good and properly priced...
We need some suggestions on wheels....
This week I will be ordering wheels for this project and we have a few wheels in mind but are open to suggestions....
