No, the slip yoke diameter was too big to fit with the cross member I'm using - one of Nathan's early prototypes I believe.

I'll let ya know about the noise when I figure out why this thing isn't running. So far it looks like it's never even fired on cyl 2.

Bought a new Aeromotive FPR and fuel pressure gauge to dial the fuel pressure in better. Might switch to different and smaller injectors, at least for the break in period.

Haven't worked on the car in quite some time, at least a month.

So I've been avoiding this car a bit. Got it running nicely after replacing the broken fuel pressure gauge and dialing that in. However, the coolant was running into the oil pan at a beer bong like pace.

Nothing obvious as to why the head gasket is leaking, but the nuts near the intake side were slightly looser, which is where the oil drains are and that's where I'm thinking its leaking. Gonna check the head for flatness and go back to an Elring head gasket.

Also, if I go back to MLS I will definitely be using Hylomar.

Some progress over the past few months. Head is all back together with an Elring. Let's see if this seals better than the Cometic that was on it when I bought it.

New front end and wheels





Tucking some wires and cleaning up the engine bay. At this point it is looking very promising that this car will make its first appearance at MWM!




Better oil return

I like this car a lot.

Also, I like how you coordinated your block and oil filter with your license plate.

Here's what it looks like now


I'm going to make a simple throttle cable bracket off the intake manifold here


Mmmm, camber. Really want to weld the plates in. Maybe if I have some time this summer.


So, the stock oil cooler thermostat assembly (sandwich plate) will work with the Holset, but I will need to take the compressor housing off of the turbo during oil changes.

For an oil cooler, I'm looking at a couple different spots, but am leaning towards inside/right behind the front bumper. Would need to cut some speed holes in the bumper and may even need a baby e-fan.



Also considered moving the radiator and intercooler over and using an up right oil cooler


It would be nice to mount an oil cooler right underneath the support below the radiator and intercooler, but may need to do away with the horn/core support to make room.

That should give you an idea what it would look like. That's the stock 240/740 cooler.

I would suggest leaving an 1/8" gap between that nut and the strut tower. You don't want to induce any bending loads into the strut assembly.

It should be right around there. I left the 24mm socket on the shock nut when installing the camber plates to make sure I could crank 'em down and loosen 'em up.
