      I knew it would help you out. And it doesn't cost that much. Hit up their site. They have some awesome stuff. After wiring all my stuff in, i knew i had to figure something out & i found that about a year ago. I actually was suppose to buy it during my build but funds got used elsewhere. After looking at the spaghetti under the dash, i knew it was time to get it. Now i'm adding water/meth & WOT box to the list of accessories.

      His torque is gonna be stupidly high...


      Grab some Redline Shock Proof gear oil. It will help cushion those gears. This is what i run...


      It looks like red paint...

      Catch has nothing to do with it smoking. Alot of us run a single feed off the VC. return requires a catchcan without a filter.

      If its the first start its gonna smoke a bit. Mine did the same. All the lube i used on the piston rings & cyl. walls not to mention the copper gasket over spray that has to burn off. I'd start worrying about it after a few runs. Restrictor comes into effect when there's pressure built up. oil pressure is at its lowest at idle....except when cold.



      Oh, the Reline gear oil is a replacement. Comes in 3 different levels. Street, strip, and full race car. Street being the thickest. It's syncromesh friendly also. After using it, i won't use anything else.

      When I purchased my Peloquin, I asked Gary Peloquin himself what fluid to run and he recommended Syncromesh, and not MT-90... but I didn't know of the other product you showed at the time. I'll run Syncromesh for now and see how it fairs.

      Jay what are the specs on those wheels again? Noticed you are running the Falken 615's, what size? Good choice, I think I may be going with them myself shortly

      Noticed the cover plate with sketch ideas... I now detract my comment about taking it in, I think coat it first and it may actually look right .. $0.02

      I personally would vent to atmosphere JUST because I don't want my charge assembly covered in any amount of oil.

      I agree. With a VR, its hard to build an efficient catch can setup with a return that doesn't soak your turbo oil. to much work imo.

      A quality catchcan would eliminate this.. Check out 42DD Ultimate Catchcan... that'd do the trick nicely and it doesn't vent.

      Or the S-Max catchcan which does vent, I think this would work well too.

      I think you should take a few steps back and build a custom turbo header that extends out over the transmission with the turbo inlet facing the fender which houses a sprinter vent. Not sure on the function you would get but it sure would look cool. Regardless I've enjoyed this thread alot.

      That was a test fit of the elbow to see if i had clearance after installing the restrictor. It rest about 4" above it & covered in a thermal sleeve made just for feed lines.


      What keeps it up is that i ran it through the loop on the back of the block. Been running it like this for a few months now.

      C&R filler neck. No tank. It will all be getting changed though. Gonna be using a small tank that will mount where the sec. waterpump sat. The only reason why i'm changing it is due to the filler neck being in the way of the boost tubing. If i can get the tubing closer to the front, i'll keep it.

      CSR inline just isnt a good solution on the VR... it works but it a small tank is a much better way. I have the inline now but going back to a stock overflow bottle, then eventually a custom tank.

      Capt - you fabbing your own small tank or ?

      You're building a car to drive and drive hard, the inline is for looks. Anyway, Heres one product I've been looking at

      http://www.speedmaxperformance.com/S...oduct_id=30086

      But this guy (really wish I knew whose car it was) has a nice simple tank, may be custom.

      I agree, mainly because the radiator sits pretty low & you need a filler higher then the rad. I'm not saying it doesn't work. I've been running this same filler neck for 5 yrs. The problem is getting air out the system. It takes me a solid 2-3 hrs to get all the air out. Other then that it works great. The line coming from it is going to a vac bubble that i converted into an overfill. (it has a drain at the bottom.). some people put the inline fillers on the heatercore hose. SiliconeIntakes.com sell 'em.


      My 1st option is to have it made. If not, i have a sweet plan B that will bolt right up to the bracket on the side of the head.



      The Pic above is Amir's (Live fast) Coupe. Thats pretty old as the car looks much different. He didn't make that IIRC. I forgot where i got it. I think Alistar.

      Awesome work and very nice car! Your thoroughness is nice to see, you're not just throwing it together.
