That's a clean spot for the surge tank. Really nice.

Good Morning Everyone,

Have continued to work on the fuel setup the last few days. I used copper/ nickel hard line for most of it (-6). Ran out of fittings, so I have a flex black line for one part. Will work on fixing that later. If I can find another solution, then it will be rocking that.

Still need to make a return back into the tank. This is the part I'm not looking forward to. Will try to see if can use the filler neck.

Will put some sound deadening material in to help with any loud noises coming from the pumps (thank you Tfrasca for the advice on this).

Thanks,

Good Evening,

Got the J-pipe back today to test the fitment. Everything seemed to come together nicely with no major issues. Will send it back out tomorrow to have finished.











Thanks,

I'm trying. Most of the big ticket items have been taken care of.

Good Afternoon,

Continued to work on the fuel setup this afternoon. If there is such thing as a favorite line, this is it. Haha. Yes, I'm a loser. Need to make one more and add a few adel clamps and some aircraft hardware

I’d never have thought of a pre-turbo waste-gate. Cunning.

Can you still remove the particle board on the tank? Not a big deal, just annoying if you have to mess with your fuel level sender. Having made general maintenance items very difficult on my car, I am starting to notice things like that.

Yes it can. It’s shorter on the one side to allow that. Hard to tell with the pictures.

Good Afternoon,

Been doing some more work on the 122. Progress is slow, but still moving forward.

Plumbing done for the fuel setup.


Had the exhaust manifold milled and mounted everything today. Also put in the oil drain line (may change this setup later).

Looking good. In the pic showing your WG and UCA, I see locknuts facing the exhaust system..... those are not NYLOCK, are they? If YES, they won't survive long with the radiant heat applied. If NO, good thinking!

I almost made the NYLOCK mistake on my 70 Chevelle.... caught it before disaster.

Nylock nuts survive that spot surprisingly well. My j pipe, and around the world down pipe was as close if not closer and the new nylocks held up. Not saying it’s not better for peace of mind to use a knut or pinched metal lock nut, but I think it should be fine.

Looks great Hub. I can’t wait until it’s done.

Thank you everyone. The exhaust will be wrapped and some shielding will be applied. I’ll keep an eye on it. If i see any issues, it’s easy to swap out out.

Thanks,

Good Afternoon Everyone,

My apologies for not providing an update... My daughter was born and have been distracted with her.


However, I did start the process for the down pipe. It's currently been dropped off to be tig welded.

Afternoon Everyone,

A few updates on the build.

Downpipe all welded. Will make a bracket later for it to mount to the BH.





Bought this to start the process of the intake manifold. Cut it up and went a different route.

Afternoon Everyone,

Started painting a few things with POR 15 before bolting the front back on.


Since the intake manifold I purchased didn't work. Used part of it and going to use the YoshiFab one. Gives me a lot more room.










Also started working on the engine bay harness.






Thanks,
