      So i received this yesterday-MK1 Raceland Upper Strut..flipping $45 new from thier website...did some test fitting and came up with this.

      Observations:
      It has terrible fitment, but i was aware that its not made for my intake- only scirocco. The mounting bars were not even the with of an mk1's mounting spots on the strut- i had to bend them with my hands!. Other then that its a very nice bar..simple and clean.

      Pics: (sorry for the cellphone pics)

      Sort of what ti will look like


      Rubbing


      Rubbing


      Gap due to rubbing



      Direction:
      As you can see below i will be cutting back the bar to clear the throttle wires and fitting the cut with additional aluminium to keep the bar as rigid as possible.

      Cut outline:
      This cut would clear the throttle wire and the actuator. It is a fairly large cut.


      The bar should still be super rigid after the weld. I will polish the welded area and possible paint the bar as well. I will post pics up monday as i should be done this weekend with the cut and weld.

      Since i have not posted up anything lately..dont worry it will come! I have decided to post another cool project that myself and my supra buddy had put together for my 2007 cbr600rr race bike!

      I will be posting up my Strut and exhaust fabrications update soon.

      2007/2008 CBR600RR Exhaust Build:
      Take a look. Myself and another memeber put this bad boy together a while back for my 2007 cbr600rr race bike- thought i would post it up! My buddy is the welding master, i am simply the sherpa!

      Exhaust is SS steel with 4-1 header and 2.5" after collector with V-Band connection (yes on a bike haha). We also made CNC machined header clips (hold header to engine).This was matted to a 2.5" two borthers exhaust. Simply a for fun test go at an exahust build. Made less power down low and moved the power band way high- gained few WHP after 9000rpm. Ended up taking it off and running a two borthers header back as it yeilded better mid range which is what i needed. Never the less...and amazing build and learning experience.

      Custom 4-1 Collector:


      Jig:


      Sooo Fresh and Sooo Clean:


      Up Pipe:


      Done!:


      On Bike:


      Comments are welcome!

      Just one question, I see you have a welder as your Friend. Why not have him make you a Tubular exhaust Manifold? or a custom Intake for that matter?? Or ditch the stock TB and mod the Stock intake to fit a single TB say like 70mm?
      Sorry thats like 3 question..

      Downpipe Update:
      Quick update for anyone interested. About 90% done the DP, just waiting on one more cut and the addition of a V Band flange. Updates will happen accordingly.

      Materials:

      • 2 90deg 304 stainless 2.5" pipes
      • 4' of 304 ss straight pipe at 2.5"
      • 1 4" flex pipe 304 stainless 2.5"
      • 1 3.5" straight pipe in 2.5"
      • 5 bolt ss flange
      • TIG Welder
      • Clamps
      • Beer



      Step by Step: (Applicable for 2.0 16v 9a with 034 manifold and t3/t4 60trim)
      Note: I have already doen the calculations for you. This should be a direct fit for the application listed above.


      • Cut your 1st 90deg albow down 1.75"- straight cut (yes this will now make your perfect 2.5" a slight oval)

      • Tack your 4" flex pipe to your newly formed 90deg elbow
      • Mount your 5 bolt flange to your existing turbo.
      • Test fit your new piece by hand and insure this clears your WG and shift linkage(if running 020 tranny) and get a friend to mark the angle with a perm marker.





      • Tack your peiace via TIG


      Cut a 3.5" straight piece of your 2.5" piping and tack to to the end of your 4" flex pipe



      • Grab your 2nd 90deg 2.5" elbow and run it in line at a 90deg angle to your outlet. Mark via perm marker and tig.




      Note: When mounted this peice must run flat the rest of your pipeing moving toward the back of your vehical. Insure you test fit this peice and mark the angle you will need to cut. If you do not cut this angle your exist angle will be into your chassis.

      Note: I will post this cut angle when it is complete. Should be done for monday and i will have pics fo the fitment + v band weld.

      All done. The cut angle was 80deg. Test fit it and was about 1/2" off (hitting ps shaft) so I have to rotate the entire pipe on the flange 1/2"clockwise and she should be ready to go!

      Downpipe almost complete. Thsi is what it looks like so far.


      Went over the tie bar- to many mk1-mk2 guys are touching or tapping the bar while driving.




      Super Simple DIY:
      Simple wiring for you guys/gals who want to wire up your guages but are to lazy/dont want to hastle with finding your wiring- especially with alot of you running custom wiring and so on. Use your fuse box dammit!

      PS: Legend for VDO Gauges..
      +: Positive 12v feed wire
      -:Ground wire
      G: Wire to sender

      Start with wiring all your guages together and leave a lead for your power source. I did the same with my grounds and grounded it to the body using a screw.


      Then attach to gauges.


      This is your fuse power connection- can be bought at your local hardwear store. Simple connects to the fuse of your choice. I used fuse #20 (license plate lights). Pull your #20 fuse, fill the slot with your new clip and replace the 10amp fuse into the two open slots located on the new fuse power connector. Please a second 10amp fuse into the open slot. Tuck and zip your wiring. Test- done.







      Enjoy.

      I have a question on you DP, Have you fit the shift arm in yet?? It looks from the pics that you might be hitting the DP once you install it. I could be wrong but it looks like its going to be very close..

      I wrapped mine on my Jetta, I went back all the way the flex pipe. Witch is just past the sway bar. About where the cat would be, that is if I was running one. lol
      It did cut down on the heat a bit..
