Right. I'll do that right after I scour the thrift stores for an in-dash 8-track player and grow a mullet.

ha! Money talks brother... I can tell you now, it won't be cheap.

How about I get it running first before I go off and offer others a little piece of heaven? I gotta pressure test it tomorrow. make sure the heat didn't smoke the flange seal. It could end up being a very pretty wall ornament.

I have been busy trying to get the rad brackets and mounts done. I have also picked up another Heat exchanger for the air to water since the frozen boost option I had is not really very efficient and is about five times heavier. while searching for a better option looking through google images which seemed to be the fastest way to find the option I was looking for, I found a post on audizine of what seemed to be just the right size. It was actually a Porsche 911 center radiator and they were using it for the heat exchanger for an air to water as well. I finished with the lower rad mounts today, and had previously installed the drain plug into the bottom of the tank.

I figured I would save the pictures of the heat exchanger for later as I am in the middle of building the brackets to attach it to the rad and framework. I have plans to keep it part of the rad, A/C condenser packaging and leave it unattached from the bumper. It should prove to be a better, more efficient option for what I want. I will keep updating as much as possible and will be working on the car every day from now till its running. I hope I can get all the little things done in time.

Well, as of today I have the heat exchanger 95% done and fitted where it should be in relation to the radiator. I still have to fabricate the brackets to hold it in place, but Im happy with the current results. For those who cant imagine what its like to buy a brand new in box radiator, direct fit for a porsche, and hack the nipples off the plastic end tanks, I'll tell you what thats like. In order to make it fit, I needed the inlet and exit to veer a different direction. Pretty much 90* out the tanks. How did I make it usable after the circumcision? I used brass 3/8 pipe thread to barbed nipple 90's, and cut pipe thread into the holes of the missing plastic nipples. I also cut off the drain and did the same mod to gain needed room by using a plug countersank into the tank. I have yet to take pics of my carnage, but i can show you what an unmolested radiator looks like. I built a different surrounding bracket, so ignore the one in the pic. Image

Ill get piics of it within the next few days. I wasnt worried about the system being under any real pressure, so the mods I have done dont worry me about leaks. It seemed to go very well anyway, so I doubt it would leak even if it was. I should be finished with the engine radiator by this weekend, and be able to fill the system and start it hopefully by monday if not sooner. I will keep that updated.

Lots of progress the last couple days. I have the bulk of things needing to be done pretty much ready as it will ever be. Mind you, I have plans that have to be postponed till after the gtg in a week an a half. Its mostly just final touches on a few things, and I will get to them as long as my car makes it there and back without a major incident. They may be finished in the time up to, or put off as I would like to fully break in the engine before I take the trip down.

I may be firing the engine in the next day or two, then time to take a few drives to put on the miles for break in. All this while I still have to work every night till 3am at my real job. Thank dog its only 4 nights a week. I will need to watch the radiator very closely for leakage. It passed a pressure test with about 15ish lbs of compressed air and soapy water sprayed on the original tank seals.

And it looks like I will be able to fully test out Jareds mounts across the board. Engine, trans, diff, subframe. I hope its quiet compared to the previous 03stuff.

More pics to come.

What's your preferred break in method?

I subscribe to the "as you'll drive it" camp, IE hard. Per Motoman's website, basically.

Its now a few hours away from being fired up now. The cooling system is now complete. The air to water is done...for now. I had plans to change to a bigger innercooler, and put the coolant reservoir in the trunk area, but ran out of time. I have installed a flex fuel sensor so I can utilize the versatility of the vems and be able to run 91 or E85 without making mind numbing calculations. The engine is almost complete and wont take much time to finish.

Thanks Alex, I'm looking forward to another awesome weekend with everybody.

On another note, Its official, I am taking all of next week off to try to be ready and reliable for the trip down and back up... pending all goes well.
I was forced to spend no time with the car for the last 2 days due to the fact I had to go grocery shopping and do some needed chores around the house. I know I know, I can eat when I'm done.
