Wow, alot going on...

All the braid on the passenger side firewall looks like spaghetti... lol, More $$ in fittings and hoses then entire builds

Love the wrecker tag on the FG rocker cover for extra street cred.

Have you considered the billet MFP radiator mounts and a oil feed like bracket

It's a little messy on the l/h  side at the moment. As the rocker cover hasn't had the weld on fittings installed. The vacuum lines are a little messed up also, as I had to remove the reg and such, to fab a new reg bracket. This will delete the old pcm bracket that it is mounted to. I still have a lot to do, a lot of it make some carbon fiber parts. The car hasn't received any attention for many months as any spare time I have had, has been required elsewhere...

 

So, I have decided to come clean. I have be unfaithful...

 

It all started when I purchased this last Christmas. In the last few months, it has progressed somewhat. All at the expense of progress of the above...

Unfortunately, I am not... I'm pretty much just doing a restoration to this one, as it's the only way to maintain value and collectability.. I am considering a Whipple though...

 

I purchased a new present for the turbo and add another to the collection...

Freakin epic build Juan!  😁

 

I've just finished reading, start to finish, couple hours at least of pure car porn!

 

Makes my little FG 407rwkw build seem very inadequate 😮 

 

Keep posting mate, this is how people like me learn stuff and I can also sympathize with the trials and tribulations of car building, I've not long completed my old XA build, stoker clevo and t5, with astro a5 gear set, some trying times there to I must say but it's great to turn key and drive now... but, like you, there has been and probably still will be upgrades, are they ever really finished??

The hardest thing is finding time to work on them. I'm having a month or two off, so I'm aiming to have the SS finished asap. I'll try to get the XR stuff done on the weekends..

Haha update :doc1:

Soon... I pulled the radiator to installed a 52 mm unit. I'm having a lot of problems getting it to fit. There's no room for the thermo fans, so I may have to trim the fans or adjust the bottom radiator mount position.

The car is now in even more pieces than last time. The new radiator sits a lot further back. I had to remove a lot of material form the fan shroud, so that I could get clearance from the harmonic balancer. 

 

I installed the radiator and fan, but need a Speedflow fitting for the new aircon hose. Work kinda stopped there. The VN build is keeping me very busy and has robbed time from the poor old girl. I'll get to it soon...
