So I'm getting a little further along in my build, and I haven't been on here much at all, but thought maybe I'll post some of my build stuff up so that everyone can either check it out, or send me death threats or whatever it is you guys fancy.
Here's the 90' when I bought it.
Despite the fact that it was half vinyl wrapped, it was in pretty good shape.
It came with this super sweet 7M that had a BHG between 5 and 6.
So I took that out, and all sorts of other stuff.
I deleted the ABS and made all new hard lines and placed a Wilwood prop valve in the midst of it all. Also went with some aluminum Z32 front brakes calipers, Hawk HP Plus pads, and R1 Concepts drilled and slotted rotors. I'm running the prop valve backward of what Wilwood says because I rather adjust the bias in the front than the rear... maybe I'll die, maybe I won't. Don't know yet, but for right now the brakes work well enough to stop it at about 3mph (pushing speed).
Since installing the rotors I decided to pop on the ARP wheel studs since I need a spacer for these knock off wheels I currently am rolling around on, plus I can sleep better at night knowing I have more ARP stuff on my car.
Oh, I also did the whole MK3 diff swap thing with all the xcessive bits.
I'm not too concerned with all the rest of the suspension stuff yet... I really just want to get this thing driving, then handle the suspension stuff later. (get it? Handle the suspension stuff? HANDLE?)
Okay, enough of that.
Anyways, I'm going to put this engine in it.
I already did.
Since I took that picture, I also ran most of the fuel lines and made a cute little lid to access my fuel tank stuff.
But there's no fuel pump in there. It's under the car. I went with a Bosch 044 and decided to run it inline because it's more convenient if there are any issues in the future.
I'm still waiting on my AN clamps to make the lines look all pretty under the car, so no pictures of those right now.
Here's what's in the engine bay for now....
I have the engine mounted as far back as the xcessive mounts allow, as I've also made my trans tunnel a little larger where it meets the firewall... except apparently I can't use the xcessive trans mount (as it was designed) if I want to run everything that far back... so I'm going to make my own trans mount this weekend.
Where I currently stand:
Need to get MK3 trans stuff to convert my remote shift R154 to get the shifter in the right place (will order everything from Driftmotion once it's all released)
Need a driveshaft
Mount and route oil cooler/lines
Mount and route power steering cooler/lines
Mount and route intercooler piping
Get a tune...
Then begin all the suspension stuff.
I only work on the car one day a week, and am in no rush... so if this doesn't get updated super frequently or whatever... that's why.
The engine as it sits has-
ARP head studs
New OEM headgasket
New OEM water pump
New OEM oil pump and strainer
New OEM front main seal
New OEM rear main seal
K's Racing T3 Turbo manifold
GReddy T67 w/ .73AR Exhaust
Tial MVR wastegate...
Evolution lightweight flywheel
ACT 6 Puck unsprung clutch
Will be tuned on PFC D-Jetro.
I think that's it?
