    I have 1/4Ē of space between the strut tower and this. I may have to cut into the wastegate bracket if it hits. I bought a stick welder and welded for the 1st time to put a reducer and 2.5Ē v-band on the exhaust pipe. I need a lot more practice. It doesnít look great but it will work. I may fix it in the spring.

    Put some exhaust heat wrap on there and it’ll look great.

    Some off Brand bov I found on Amazon. Came with different spring kit. Cost more for the 1” silicon return hose than the bov,lol.



    JB welded a 1” fitting to the intake pipe for bov return after the MAF to keep it from having unmetered air.


    I’ll start it tomorrow, about done I think it was a pretty straight forward swap. I needed to get rid of the coolant hoses to the turbo since this doesn’t have any. I hope it works well.

    It was good meeting you also and great mph btw at the track. Your car is super clean! I’m trying to decide to pull the motor and put H beams rods in it. The cam is good to 7000 rpm which is where I have my fuel cut off set at. The Transmission shifts around 5500 which is what I let it do. Probably could drop the 60’ and shift it manually.

    I’m curious if I put bigger valves in the head if it would help?

    So Iíve been deciding on if I start putting together a V8 swap for it but I sourced some parts for the head in Europe so I think Iím going to push the car a bit further. Pretty fun making a slow car fast. Nothing flows well in this engine.
