It’s so great, after all the driving the only fluid leak is a minor dribble from the transmission. It took some wrenching to achieve that. At first the power steering and oil filter flange leaked. Then after I cured those the 2nd block’s vacuum pump delete leaked and with a new blockoff plate that’s cured.
Now I just need to install some output flange seals.
Testing the B6 level sender rheostat, the limits I tested for that are 55 ohm to 250ohm empty to full. Corrado is arond 40 ohm to 285ohm full to empty. Fairly close but you could really dial that in with that conversion box possibly without flipping the float too.
I’m in the process of building another 3.6 corrado and using this car to help me determine how I will install an oil cooler on my silver 3.6 corrado that has AC and all sorts of other items to make it challenging.
Here were the first couple pics of different fitting positions:
To those interested in the 850 Downpipe, It fits the stock engine mounts and the Fabless stock positions pieces. It doesn't fit Fabless's Swap kits that center the position of the engine.
****NOTE THE 850fab Downpipe fitment doesn’t work with the FABLESS VR6 Swap Kit mounts and cross member that reposition the engine****
850 Fab's individual mounts and cross member doesn't reposition the engine and works with the 850 Fab downpipe.
****also note that I don’t have any connection with 850Fab other than I paid to have him weld my downpipe and he then made a jig from it. I don’t make a cent off the sales of that part or any other parts sold by other 3.6 swap part sellers.
I'm saying all this because it was pointed out that I had misspoken about the Fabless parts which hadn't been pointed out to me before. I'm planning to get a Fabless centering kit to help with engine fitment and maybe even handling. I plan to make mockup a new downpipe...who knows maybe a jig will get made from it.
