right now the fox is parked in my garage cause of the crapy weather. come on summer hurry up and also i put some inserts in the midle headlights. till i get a one peice headlight grill[IMG]james and nick's build[/IMG][IMG]james and nick's build[/IMG]
soon as the weather get good for a long time i'll get some 1/4 mile times hopeing for low 12's high 11's can't launch hard though cause the tranny's 1st gear won't hold geting a tranny build by randy's ring and pinion right now
some updated for you guys started some body work on the deck lid this picture is old but some people don't know that that spoiler is made to fit a datsun 510. we at first rushed putting it on the car so we used bondo like i new it it cracked so i chiped of the bondo and used fiberglass still working on it. got a little more to go and gets paint on this monster [IMG][/IMG]
Outstanding! Good to see you didn't sell it and you're doing everything right. Those are some seriously impressive HP numbers for an 8v. Kinda makin me re think the whole 20v idea. I've been tied up in other projects lately so I haven't made any progress. Maybe i'll see you at some GTG's this year? I'd love to see this beast in person.
remember to spay or neuter your politicians
today i just installed a new boost gauge got rid of the old crapy sunpo gauge replaced it whith a prosport gauge from vtr performance shop this gauge has a boost warning light so if you ever go over your set boost it blinks and sounds go off i like this one also cause it's smoke tint. this fox is becoming better by the moment
ok some updates the fox runs great no problems. doing some body work to it
but i noticed the fox burns a little oil when first start found out the problem .the valve seals are leaking cause my brother used cheap ones just ordered some good ones from TT.
the car burns oil till it warms up then goes completely away. im going to pull the head off but i know you can do it whith the head on. pulling the head just gives me the chance to look at the pistons and make shure that there good even thogh i know they will be
ok some updates i am going to pull the motor to fix a couple of oil leaks and rebuild the head at the same time. and also when the motor is out im going to clean up the wire mess.
oh had some fun detailing the fox motor as you can see in the pictures
i pulled the motor over the last week sorry i didn't take any pictures i was just focused on getting the car done. i replaced all the valve seals and found one. that was bad. the seal was a little crushed witch caused my oil burning when i first start up. fixed all the oil leaks and now im. going to wait for some good weather so i can go to pacific raceways and do some 1/4 mile runs.
and again sorry for no pics
thanks denver fox still have alot of body work to go before i paint it
sorry for not coming on here sooner the website was messed up. i couldn't log on to update till now
the tranny on the fox got replaced with a 5m 5spd tranny from a 86 quatom. the tranny has a lsd in it witch really suprized me. but im still looking for the b5 passat tranny more and likely buy it whith my income tax refund. i'll start a new thread on doing the swap step by step and how to mount the tranny
i have a couple of videos but there crapy every time i hit boost my dad can't hold the camera strait.
i need to make a solid mount camera holder then i can get good videos. happy holloween
The turbo is big yes and i decited to keep my other turbo on. Im just ganna keep the big one for another car.
and as for the tranny i haven't found the right one yet, but when i get my income tax i'll have one built. Right now i have a 86 quatom 5 spd in there it's holding but when i got it. the reverse has a funny noise. but it's only reverse not to concern
ok some updates i haven't been on here to update in a long time had a few issues with fox i blew the turbo up. what went wrong is we had the oil feed line to the turbo come off the back of the head. and it's not filtered oil. so the reducer for the oil got plugged with a piece of rubber. the turbo got no oil and broke. i have now fixed it with a all new center new fins and all come to find out the holset is a hx35 not a hy35 and the feed line is coming off the oil filter with a inline filter as well for security. that about it for now
