Hey I can post pictures again! Side Exit! My welding/fab is improving slightly if I do say so myself.









Look at that rear wheel gap! (stock coil height)

Exhaust isn't quiet, anyone want it when I run my full exhaust this winter? haha

Car is now off insurance for the winter, didn't want to do it so early, but its been cold and Im busy as hell with school.

I'm thinking about doing the fuel system over the winter break. Need to dig up some nice looking trunk filter/pump setups maybe. Will probably keep the stock tank for awhile. It looks like it was replaced right before I bought the car, so I gotta put some use to it.

It is, but the current price is wrong, needs to go up, it's more of a if someone wants to pay the price for it.

Everything is for sale!

Do you have a picture, or semi description of how you ran your drain line?

Right now, the easiest way, is looking like through the 1st and 2nd runner.

A few pages back, sorry didn't see your post.

This picture.



Shows I have a -10AN 45 to a long piece of hose to another 45 on the block



One of the fat lines is the oil drain.

Thanks! Not sure how I missed the first one... sad part is I think I looked at that too but not really realizing it. I ended up going behind the runner, and wrapping the line in fire sleeve. I just got a few more AN fittings in and I may re-do it. Right now I have a 45 from the welded fitting on the block, and I think I may add a 45 off the turbo like you have. (I actually got it in Monday - just need to install it.)

Sure, my lady is locked up in the garage until spring though. I have yet to start working on it since all of December is just exams and Christmas to me haha Probably get in there soon and get it up on jack stands.

Ah yeah, I ended up redoing my lines more than a couple times. I'm pretty good at it now haha. They're a pain but the first time the feed was too short, and just wasn't a good feeling about it. I had a bunch of extra line so figured I would just do it right the first time while I was in there. The 45 off the turbo just gets it away from the runner a bit better.

I saw your ring in Popular Science today.

You're probably right below Doug as most famous turbobricker

Hahaha, I doubt I'm that famous, but I'm still in disbelief about being in PopSci, Glad to hear you saw it!

Its starting to warm up, time to pull the vehicle out of hibernation. Not going to lie, I had no time to work on her at all.

Shes out. Hose clamped the clutch cable so it doesn't slip, time for some sketchy driving before I start taking it apart again.

So... Adjusting the cable today, get it just where I want it then I go to check how it feels. No good, confused I go under the car to look. Brand new fork bent, great. Damn pressure plate.

Uhh yep, thats not right.(Don't mind the rust)



Seems the pedal got some of it too, I'm amazing how much it deformed.

Decided to start stripping the car since basically I can't drive it without dropping the trans anyway, so I've given up on rushing things to drive it this summer and will just slowly work on all the crap.
Pulled the entire interior today and am 1/3rd done scraping up the NVH tar under the carpet and seats. Then time for rust repair and widebody, along side dropping the rear end and replacing all the bushings + adding LSD. Good thing I didn't try to drive it to Carlisle this year.
