Re: Gotta cut the hood. Give me some opinions.

And I haven't even tried installing everything yet.

There's a lesson to be learned here folks. If you buy a kit, you don't have to go through all this crap.

Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying working on the car, but damn it, I want boost already!

Re: Gotta cut the hood. Give me some opinions.

i was gonna suggest hood spacers it would only provide function as it pulls the hot air out of the enginebay.. i did it to mine to make my strut bar properly fit.

Re: Gotta cut the hood. Give me some opinions.

If it was in the back, then hood spacers would be an idea, however with the WG being in front like that, there's a much better chance of air catching it and popping the hood up.

I'm not too worried about the core support bit. I'm going to reinforce it later when I get the exhaust welded up. You see those cross members cut all the time. Its still connected and will be MIG'd up soon for more support.

Re: Gotta cut the hood. Give me some opinions.

Yeah Travis, I'm a little impatient when I comes to wrenching around on my car!

Hopefully I don't run into any problems when I start cutting on the hood. I'll start that Tuesday since my wife is going to Rome for a week and I can deadline the car while I get the exhaust and clearance issue taken care of.

Woohoo! Rep's working again. Although I just gave out all I could for the next 24 hours.

Re: Gotta cut the hood. Give me some opinions.

Yeah, thats true. I dyno'd my car yesterday and the engine was just sloshing around in there. Really makes me want to dump the money into a torque damper. heads up foos.

Re: Gotta cut the hood. Give me some opinions.

Good point fellas, I'll bend that bit out a touch before reinforcing it. I already have a torque dampener and engine mount inserts. The engine doesn't move at all. I have mad vibration now at idle but the engine is rock solid in place.

Triz, buy the ES inserts (they're like $30 shipped) before you get the Ingalls. You'll probably find you don't need the Ingalls after you put the inserts in. Huge difference from stock engine with stiffy to to stock engine with stiffy and inserts.

Re: Gotta cut the hood. Give me some opinions.

Energy Suspension (ES) has a store front on Ebay, you can get them there. Summit carries them and so does the Energy Suspension website. Pretty easy to find. I'll get the part number after work today and post it up.

Re: Gotta cut the hood. Give me some opinions.

Rotate that elbow on the flange 90 degrees to the passenger side. Lay the WG sideways along the log. Get it as low as you can get it. You wont be able to bolt it on... so check and see if it fits, then weld the elbow to the manifold.
The farther away from the core support you can get it, the more clearance you have. Get the WG sideways rather than laying forward, you'll have more room.

Re: Gotta cut the hood. Give me some opinions.

Good advice, but its too late at this point, I can make it work.

Once I hollow out the underside of the hood I won't have any clearance issues. I just don't feel like changing the orientation of everything and paying for welding again, that **** was expensive over here $300 USD equivalent for the work. I would have to sort new dump pipe tubing, flange, and so on and just don't want to **** with it. Tacking a support bar back on that cross member will be easy, I can just MIG that myself.

Brute force and ignorance will see this through. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Re: Gotta cut the hood. Give me some opinions.

Yep, gonna start cutting on the hood tonight and am also going to measure what I need and chop the piping off the cat in prep for the fix.

I'm going to start installing **** this week too. I've had enough waiting around. All that's left is waiting for the boost gauge install kit, and WG spring to arrive then getting the exhaust sorted. I figure I'll be able to get the IC mounted and holes cut for the piping tonight after sorting the exhaust. Fuel pump tomorrow, plus coolant lines for the blower. After that we'll have to see.

Enough is enough. This **** is going on.

OK, 3 hours later, I've got half the lawn mowed. Its been raining too damn much here lately. I'm tired, hungry and old so I'm going to eat supper, drink some beer and play the PS2 for a bit. Turbo stuff and fitment issues will still be there tomorrow.

Re: Gotta cut the hood. Give me some opinions.

2.5" straight pipe and flex coupler ordered from Summit to fix my exhaust issue. Another $60 down the drain. I'm at $5633 (give or take a few bucks) for the entire build now. Jesus Christ. I have a lot of extra stuff not in your normal kit (clutch and FW, Koyo rad, gauges, wideband, and so on) but that's still a large chunk of change.
